Another one bites the dust

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

It's amusing to see England's suffering over the years, whether at the hand(s) of Maradona or the Germans.

Even better - being eliminated by Iceland in the round of 16 in the Euro 2016! :shock:



I mean, Argentina and Germany are objectively better football nations than England.
Argentina has won the world cup twice and has three silvers.
Germany has reached the final eight times and has won it four times. They also have four bronzes and one fourth place.
England has only made the final four three times. They won once, on home turf, after a very questionable goal - it’s disputed whether the ball ever crossed the goal line, and they finished fourth in 1990 and 2018.
That’s roughly on par with Sweden. We’ve made the final four four times and have one silver (1958) and two bronzes (1950, 1994) to show for it. Yet we don’t have the hubris that England has.

But Iceland!

Iceland has like 300,000 inhabitants. That’s not even enough for a proper city. :|

It was the first time ever Iceland had qualified to play in a major tournament.
10% of their population followed the team in place in France, and most of the rest gathered at that outside event with a huge screen in Reykjavik.

The screaming lunatic you can hear is the Icelandic TV commentator.
Whatever you do, always give 100 %!
Except when donating blood.

David Lander, who rose to fame by playing Squiggy on the sitcom "Laverne & Shirley," died Friday at 73 from complications related to multiple sclerosis, which he battled for over 30 years, his wife said.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

I thought that was a few years ago for Mick?

Didn't he say he tried out for the Vancouver Millionaires when they last played? 8-)
