    • If Hitler hadn't been such a meglomanic, he might not have made the mistakes that led to his demise.
    • If Japan hadn't bombed Pearl Harbor, the U.S. wouldn't have joined the war.
    • If there had been a minimum of communication on Three's Company, Jack never would've found himself in such predicaments.
    • If Scott Norwood would've just nailed that 18 yarder, the Bills might've won four in a row.
    • If Roby Baggio doesn't sky it over the bar, well, Bebeto was up next so Brazil would've have probably still won.
    • If becoming a doctor were easy, everyone would be one.
    • If South Korea hadn't scored that goal against Portugal, the U.S. wouldn't have gone through....

    Poor Scott. First, Vincent Gallo makes a movie based on the protagonist having a fantasy of killing a character obviously based on Scott.

    And then flanoverseas shortens his missed field goal from 47 yards (or thereabouts) to an 18 yard chip shot that I could make left footed.

    My bad, I was confusing this kick with the Army Navy game a year later that was from the 8 yard line - Ryan Bucchianeri.

    Sorry Scott.

    It's like the story about the big fish that got away. Soon, the 47 yard field goal will be a 10 yard chip shot, with a 40 miles per hour wind at his back, against a defensive line made of wheelchair-bound midgets.

    As a die-hard Bills fan I don't know what to make of this. I'm juts luck y that kick happened when I was in about 5th grade. If it happened in my adult years I'd probably still be traumatized.

    The Guatemala game before the Hex started. We almost lost, I believe McBride saved us.

    The 3 wins last time in the Hex followed by 3 losses.

    Agoos' own goal against South Korea in 2002

    You might be right. It was one of those Bannana Republics with no grass on their field.

    No, that was the game where they paid Honduras to hit the bar and post, like about six (or was it eight?) times!

    It was Barbados. And they had grass. It was about 7 inches deep. I think the ball got lost a few times in there. Not to mention the pitch played host to a rodeo the night before.

    if Armas and Vanney had not gotten injured we might not have gotten to the next round. Pablo was a key and would not have gotten on the field and Heydude might have been riding the pine too

    If America didn't play American football, America would have become the first country to have won the WC six times by now.

    If there was more fan support, the WUSA would still be around.
