Well, I don't know how this happened (I do know how the act works......i'm talking about the coincidence) but three of Verdy's own have a birthday today. The triplets ( Saito.....or MARTIN as I just found out he's called, Togawa, and Ohashi) all were born on the same day. Big Marty is the oldest of the three at 26 , followed by Togawa and Ohashi at 25.
Happy Birthday, boys.......now go make Consadole taste their taint.
Also I didn't see it but Hagimura was responsible for the own goal. Verdy did nothing with a man advantage (actually letting up a goal) and Ono went out early. Training camp doesn't sound like a success.
Double report coming Saturday
Since Japan and the US both flamed out miserably, I'm looking for a new team to support through the round of 16. It's a tossup between Holland, Australia, and Ghana (I would pick England but except for Nick and the Omiya contingent (Bolton Dave, Furtho, and Aaron the Omiya Fan) most of the Anglophiles have been lapping up the US misery like sick dogs in their own vomit).
Anyhow, here's hoping France gets shown the door tonight!
