re: Thinking of taking a trip to Prague and Eastern Europe - MUMFORD
Can't speak from experience on your other options, but spending quality time in Budapest would be a nice treat if you're also doing Prague. Be sure to visit one of the historic bath houses while you're there. ;-) ...

re: Stop sign ticket near Opelousas - MUMFORD
[quote]Yeah the ville platte exit[/quote] Bummer. I'm usually rolling into Opelousas around 1-2am most trips from Houston. There's usually no one driving along that stretch of highway even during the day, so it's enticing to "roll through" those stop signs. ...

re: Is Ghana that good? - MUMFORD
In 2009, Ghana won the FIFA U-20 World Cup (Held in Egypt). They defeated Brazil in a Penalty Shoot-out 4-3 (Match ended Fulltime at 0-0). As a side note, the US team did not advance out of the group stage. At least 4-5 players off of that squad are starting for Ghana in this year's World Cup. O...

[quote]I think the Miricale on Ice was amazing, but WC without a doubt. For Miricale there was Russia and a couple other teams. For the WC there are at least 8 teams who have a legit shot at winning.

The USMNT WC FINAL ROSTER CUTS PREDICTION THREAD - MUMFORD
I wouldn't be surprised if JK takes his final roster decision as close to the June 2nd deadline as possible. Being a Dynamo fan I'm hoping that I'm wrong about Brad, but my 7 missing the cut are: Yedlin, Edu, Beckerman, Wondolowski, Gonzalez, Evans and Davis. [i](Although I wouldn't be sur...

What do the Mexican fans shout when the opposing team takes a free kick? I assume they're shouting some profanity perhaps, since the Spanish language broadcasts always mute the sound just as the kick is being taken. :confused:...
