    the shame of it, our great nation succumbing to those colonials, its worse than giving
    back India to the Indians!

    They wiped them with Scott towel and TP! When did they give India back? I guess they did not like it there so they all came to USA? NYC has curry on every corner now!

    its independence.

    Not so! The Brick in lower Manhattan has the hottest curry on earth! Chef has to wear a mustard gas type gas mask to prepare the volatile concoction! Those dang colonials keep getting inspired by good ol' USA into breaking away from mother England. Too bad the Scots aren't nearly as brave as a skinny, bald guy wearing a toga(Ghandi)! WE're not pansies! We're sunflowers! At least in Texas where other than cactus it's the only thing that'l grow! LOL!

    Ya do well, old buddy! In Texas pansies are wee little pans for crepe making, except we stuff them with chili, cheese and onions as a form of predate perfume!

    BTW, show greatest respect for Cooper, otherwise known around these here parts as Coopernicus!

    Well, I'm glad they won.....I guess. Yea team.

    You know it's gotta hurt when a country is soccer crazy and gets beat by a country with a population that could really care less for the most part. I can just picture them beating Scotland in a stadium in the US that is for the most part empty while the entire nation of Scotland is screaming at their TV's. Hilarious!!

    actually the USA has more registered soccer players than almost any other nation and
    do you speak on behalf of all Americans when you say that they couldn't care less?
    clearly some Americans do care.

    Today, however, according to FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association),
    the United States has more official soccer players than any other nation in the world -
    almost 18 million. - http://usa.usembassy.de/sports-soccer.htm

    the entire population of Scotland is roughly five million and i would say about a fifth of
    them play soccer, maybe even less.

    Absolutely correct. Yet interest in USA for soccer is largely confined to soccer moms and Latinos. It is the number one amateur sport in the USA. The pro leagues get very little attention because they all play worse than Scotland!
