This isn’t the final season of Lie To Me; it’s the second half of Season Two. The show has been renewed for a third season already (Shawn Ryan will be gone though).

What if “TV’s Greatest Surprises: A Paley Center for Media Special” was, itself, a suprise? Imagine- you tune in expecting to see Jeff Probst and tv trivia, ans it turned out to be Orson Welles, revealing that he faked his death so he could go undercover to find out who killed JFK… and it turned out to be the Pope’s evil twin who also faked the moon landing.
Yeah, it’s dull at work today… what of it?

Yeah, North Korea may not be the most talented team in the Cup, but they are the most motivated.

In the article, you switch between first-person-singular to first-person-plural. Are the latter the times Flapjacks starts getting noisy, or are the former when your meds make him quiet?

So.. does all this World Cup crap make you wish you were American where soccer just isn’t such a damn big deal, even if only for a moment?

@Zenrage: Given previous soccer posts by MGK that seems unlikely…

The problem is that you would be trading it for unavoidable hooplah over the World’s Shittiest Sport (gridiron football, obviously), which is much, much more of a pain to live with.

Yeah, American football is one of the most annoying sports ever invented, along with boxing, tennis, and hockey (sorry, Canadians).

Why would you call “American Football” football?

I mean, its not played with the feet and that’s NOT a ball.

Srsly.

It was named after Rugby football. Supposedly, the game had more kicking in the 19th Century.
By the way, ‘soccer’ is a late 19th Century term from Britain– originally ‘socca’, short for ‘association football’. So the Britons can’t blame us for calling it that. They’re the ones who gave us the word.

Sorry, the most annoying sport ever is BASEBALL. I’m always amazed the players don’t fall asleep during the game.

Baseball at least has a few things going on. Golf aka the non-sport eclipses that.

I made up this analogy a few years back & mentioned to a friend about the supposed two classic (pre-the ascent of basketball) “great American Sports”:
Baseball = Steve Rogers
Football = That USAgent guy

(Come on, if gridiron football were a person, it would be a complete asshole.)

And even the death laser cleats couldn’t get North Korea by Brazil.
