    Yeah, like you wouldn't.

    As for the set, gotta dip into this $20 billion with a B profits at some point.

    Balotelli with a yellow, he'll miss Italy's next match.

    Was it legit? (Haven't turned the game on yet.) And was the first yellow legit?

    I don't like that system. Two yellows in three matches and you have to sit out an elimination match as a result, that is too harsh a penalty given the inconsistent officiating and the way refs are often suckered into giving yellows. Would rather see something like three yellows in any rolling four- or five-game period (no wiping the slate after group stage).

    Can Italy play any dumber? They just need a tie, and they are playing some of the least-disciplined soccer I've ever seen. Now they're reduced to parking the bus and faking injuries the rest of the game.

    "Reduced" to it?

    That's what they aspire to.

    Actually, since the red card, Italy has played its best soccer of the game. I just don't get what Marchisio was thinking on that red. Studs up, just below the knee, with the referee no more than five feet away? Really?

    They can and will. My guess is that this is his last action of the tournament.
