    The next time a cornerback jumps on a receiver to take a PI and prevent an 80-yard touchdown, I hope he is banned forever. Because he is a cheater.

    Kind of a funny sidebar on Suerez:

    LILA PIRIZ spreads the yellowing photos of her grandson Luis Suarez on her dining room table and beams the warm smile of cherished family moments remembered.
    There’s little Luis in his first football team, his blue shorts flapping to his knees. In another Luis the grinning schoolboy is perched on his proud granny’s lap.
    Gently clasping the pictures for me to see, pensioner Lila says again and again in Spanish: “Mi negrito, mi negrito.” It is, she explains with moist eyes, her pet name for the £23million Liverpool striker, which translates as “My little black boy”.

    There is a huge difference between putting someone on the turf and biting someone. Putting someone on the turf is a professional foul in a contact game, which soccer is. Biting someone is freaking biting someone.

    @holyfield I guess any part of the body is up for eating.

    That was comical. "No, no, put your shirt back up. Don't do that."

    What are the odds FIFA suspends Suarez at all, let alone the remainder of the tournament?

    It's really hard to say. Historically, not much. In today's world, FIFA, just like every other person/entity can't escape HD replays, omnipresent cameras, and social media. I don't even think the crooks at FIFA can say there isn't any evidence.

    I don't know how - given the bite marks on his shoulder - that Suarez escapes punishment. But then I remember we're talking about FIFA.

    And the Uruguay defense strategy is Alex Jonesian ...

    Uruguay captain Diego Lugano (translated): "You have to be stupid to think that mark on Chiellini is from today." #ITAvsURU

    How is that even tolerated? That guy needs to be given the hockey treatment by Marty McSorley on the "pitch".
