Jordoom: "a pity goal at 90mins" holy blazes how do you guys do it? I tried to watch soccer once. Felt like I was Rip Van Winkle. Woke up in a daze. But only 23 seconds had gone by. Jul 9, 2014 20:29:48 GMT -5
James: Jor, I watch Test Match cricket. Starts at 10:30am, finishes at 6pm. A football match? That's like a piece of flash fiction against the Lord of the Rings. Jul 10, 2014 1:43:05 GMT -5
J.O.N ((Dragonwing)): Yeah, when you watch a sport where its matches are multi day events, a 90 min game isn't going to compare. Jul 10, 2014 3:02:01 GMT -5
Kwan: I've concluded that soccer is a lot like baseball, in that usually fans/viewers are doing something else besides watching the game for most of it, Jor. Jul 10, 2014 14:13:53 GMT -5
Kwan: Which in Brazil's case would have been totally understandable. Jul 10, 2014 15:13:02 GMT -5
J.O.N ((Dragonwing)): Honestly, I got that from American Football. So many ad breaks and only short bouts of action. Jul 11, 2014 7:37:04 GMT -5
James: Yeah, when I watch football, I'm only watching the football. Cricket is mostly cricket and if there's a lull in play, a book may come out. American football, it's 10 seconds of action and then on the laptop for the next two minutes. Jul 11, 2014 18:12:46 GMT -5
Kwan: Alright, I mean, if watching a ball get kicked around for long stretches of time without anything happening is your thing, that's your thing. If that's action, however, then so is football, since there's so much to watch on the field beside the ball. Jul 11, 2014 23:08:43 GMT -5
James: I can't watch it because there's a commercial in my way for dog food and/or a car. Jul 12, 2014 0:08:51 GMT -5
James: Anyway. It doesn't matter. Because if we're talking what's the best spectator sport, it's darts. Always has been darts. It will always be darts. Jul 12, 2014 0:09:26 GMT -5 *
James: I take that back. Cricket. It is always cricket. 198 run stand for the final wicket with Jimmy Anderson (who's never scored more than 31) with a classy, shot-playing 81. Jul 12, 2014 15:37:16 GMT -5
Injin: Cricket makes no sense. Jul 13, 2014 1:48:07 GMT -5
James: DRAGON WINS ROUND 5. Jul 13, 2014 2:02:27 GMT -5
Injin: You scared me for a moment. You have to realize that as an American, I literally have no reason to think cricket makes any sense. Does any American understand Cricket? Jul 13, 2014 2:15:13 GMT -5
Kwan: Clearly you've never watched intercollegiate Quidditch, James. Jul 13, 2014 2:24:36 GMT -5
James: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmI-RaPhKDA What's so confusing... Jul 13, 2014 2:26:18 GMT -5
J.O.N ((Dragonwing)): Fuck even I'm confused by that one. Jul 13, 2014 5:05:38 GMT -5
James: Something similar happened in a game of mine years ago. Except, I quickly walked back out of the crease because I knew the other guy was a better batsman... also probably my fault on the call too. Jul 13, 2014 5:10:36 GMT -5
J.O.N ((Dragonwing)): First World Cup that Germany won since being united. Here's holding out for Korea next, may their glorious leader score all 99 winning goals. Jul 13, 2014 18:17:17 GMT -5
J.O.N ((Dragonwing)): The 'Users Online in the Last 24 hours' is just showing Taed as the only person to have been online... What have you done with the others? Oh god... Am I next?! Jul 20, 2014 7:09:27 GMT -5
