I think hockey fans just have a hard time with soccer. The game moves, comparatively, at a snail's pace, getting from one zone to another looks like a Herculean effort, goals are so rare, and the flopping can be rampant at times.

If you have a rooting interest it goes fast. Think of hockey, let's say Ottawa is down by a goal for the whole game the minutes tick away faster and faster due to the urgency to tie it up. A tie game has the same effect if you're anxious for the win. That's how I see it anyway because I find that these matches just fly by.

I should have prefaced that statement with "I think many/some hockey fans..."

For me, the game moves so incredibly slow on the field. The pace of hockey has created a relish for a game at a very different speed, for me.

It's more tactical though and has a different element that hockey does not: set pieces.

Holy crap! Had to read the alert on my BB twice yesterday... can't believe Italy is through. On penalty kicks no less. Next up for them is Germany. They will have their work cut out for them, that's for sure.

Unbelievable.

Portugal vs Spain in the other semi on Wed.

Italy vs Germany on Thu.

I can see a Germany vs Spain final... as most were predicting...

"Other" semi, my a$$. It's the only semi that matters.

I predict Portugal v. Other (Insignificant) Team in the Finals.

The pretty ladies need time to rest in between games... all that flopping around and dramatics on the grass really take a toll on your ovaries...
