DC History Club & Harley’s Crew present 📺 V FOR VENDETTA 💥 Book Club & Watch-Along/Scavenger Hunt! MONDAY 6/7 @ 6PM PST/9PM EST

Oh no! I know whatcha mean! They’re trying to get more women’s teams globally, but the funding :neutral_face: of course, just isn’t there, so then we get a blowout like Thailand. (Ouch). That’s evidence to fund, imo!

I gotta step away for a bit too. Nice chatting :soccer:, friends! :hugs::purple_heart:

:eyes: which position?

I can now say “I learned about soccer while in a discussion about V for Vendetta”.

This shall be my Phrase of the Day, and therefore, I shall drop it where apropos.

Right back, mid field center or right. Prefer midfield but in Japan with my size it was relatively easy for me to run strikers off the ball, so was put back a lot. Started playing in Germany cuz someone said “hey, you wanna play?”

Well, feel free to skip over my comments as you read back through the thread. I’ll sum them up all this way: “The movie removed all of that wonderful 1980s edge from the original story in the name of mainstream appeal, and it somehow feels like it’s in a constant rush to the finish despite being over two hours long.”

Well, V for Vendetta was still my favorite theatrically released DC movie of 2006, so there’s that. :slight_smile:

As Stephanie Tanner says, “Well, pin a rose on your nose.” :rose: :nose:t2: :wink:

@msgtv I found the game you told me about and have it set to record.

I also came across a rerun of the… what was it you mentioned yesterday…Conaco Classic? Coors Coffee Klatch? Krispy Kreme Classic? Yeah, that must be it (yeah, definitely is, definitely, yeah) :smirk: and have that set to record as well. :soccer: :goal_net:

@msgtv and @Razzzcat, I caught the US vs. Costa Rica game on Wednesday, and I may have just been bitten by the soccer bug. :soccer:

and that was just a ‘friendly’ meaning attached to no tournament, something of an exhibition. The many of the best US players didn’t play. Also, Ladies on tonight vs Portugal FS 1

Pieces. It’s recorded, but I haven’t had time to sit through it all (or skip to highlights, at least).

I was watching the Bucks, then too drained to turn on soccer after that.

@Vroom the Euros are going on now on ESPN, it’s like the World Cup but just Europe. Entertaining stuff.

Announcers were just talking about a player who wants to open a pub after his career in football is over.

Their accents are sublime. I should attempt to mimic them.
