Pushing my leftist, soccer-loving agenda (good god what has happened to me?), here are some things that happened this weekend.
Brazil shocked that United States has a soccer team - Up 2-0 on one of the world's best soccer teams, the US couldn't hold on against Brazil and ended up losing 3-2. The difference? Apparently you cant win soccer games when the other team possesses the ball 60 percent of the time.
Billy Mays dies - In terms of shocking, this was up on the list. Forget about Michael Jackson, this was the guy that sold us Oxi-Clean!
Seattle Sounders FC get big win over Colorado - the boys in green shut down a team that had an 8-game unbeaten streak. The Colorado Rapids were stunned 3-0 by Seattle, Kasey Keller recorded his fifth shutout of the season (which means that Oliver Platt has scored more times than opponents of the Sounders).
Hoopfest - Judging from the amount of 50-year old men suffering from heat stroke, I'd say that it was Hoopfest weekend in Spokane. I caught the tail end of it and it was full of "those guys" that decided their 230-pound 5'4" frame was fine for non-shirt wearing. Ewwww.
The Seattle Mariners take two against the best team in baseball - Really? Those M's? If their lineup wasn't taking at-bats like it was t-ball, they might have something in Seattle.
Brandon went to Chewelah, Casey went to Montana - Where the cattle to human ratio is something like how many back-breaking strikeouts Ken Griffey Jr. has to home runs.
