The World Cup semifinal is the equivalent to the NFC Championship game. In the most recent such game the Eagles beat the Vikings 38-7.

If they're going to compete separately in soccer, then why not the English Olympic team, Scottish Olympic team, Welsh Olympic team , N Ireland Olympic team? If all 4 are big enough to compete internationally in soccer, they could certainly send athletes to the Olympics & give their athletes the opportunity to compete under their won county's flag. Lots of small population countries do. If you ask someone from any of the 4 their nationality, I doubt you'll hear "I'm Great British". Don't people from Scotland say they're "Scottish" and peoples from Wales say they're "Welsh"?



Back on this madness again, apparently Ancestry is confused about Great Britain as well. I was just looking at my report and they have Scotland and Wales separate from Great Britain. :suspicious:

I don't care about soccer. But the thought of finding a UK soccer board just to witness that meltdown is such a tantalizing thought

Kind of embarrassing for the English to have invented the sport (they did invent it right?), yet only have 1 world title to show for it. Maybe they should have done the same as the Olympics, pooled their talent from 4 nations into a Team Great Britain, instead of it being spread over 4 national teams. Maybe a Great Britain would have then won several world cups by now and be going for another.

This must be somewhat of a big thing. I've noticed that several bars are advertising being open at 10:30 on Sunday morning. :shock:

It was only a year ago that the State allowed local governments to decide to sell alcohol at 10:00 on Sunday mornings instead of noon. Asheville adopted it, but mostly restaurants that serve brunch, and grocery stores I guess, took much advantage of it. Bars that I prefer, meaning bars and not restaurants serving alcohol, generally haven't bothered changing their opening times since then. Today was an exception.

To put it in perspective for you. When I moved to NC in 1973 (praise Allah! ;) ), you couldn't buy alcohol legally at all on Sunday. And mixed drinks were forbidden at bars and restaurants. Things change.
