Well at least we made it interesting for a while. And Cristiano is out too so his jock riders have nothing to crow about. Brazil and England need to go out and all is well.

I picked France and Uruguay to advance today. I felt pretty smart.

I picked France and Belgium as my two favorites before the tourney, so I'm still looking ok.

3 minutes in and Atlanta already puts Orlando down 1-0. The "lions" are a shit show.

57 minutes in. 3-0 Atlanta. Most of the big guns have gotten theirs already. Martinez, Almiron, and Barco.

4-0. Almiron is the rare human being who is even faster dribbling with a soccer ball than without.

There are times it legit feels like Orlando will never ever beat Atlanta. This is supposed to be a rivalry. They don't even look fit to carry United's bags.

I'm hopeful O'Connor can come in and right the ship in Orlando. From everything I've read on him he had one of the tightest budgets in the USL and still turned them into a powerhouse through coaching and tactics, which is what Orlando has been lacking pretty much since they became an MLS team.

Some of the fanbase is saying it's an embarrassment we're hiring a USL coach instead of someone with international fame but Flavio came out and said he expect the current roster to make the playoffs THIS YEAR so most coaches would probably stay away if they know going in they're not going to make an meaningful changes to the roster and have to win on top of that with a team that honestly looks like it doesn't want to play together.

Itís going to be really hard for that coach to get them turned around from 8 straight losses to a playoff appearance in half a MLS season. Thatís probably unrealistic.

Atlanta evidently rubbed salt in the wounds by playing The Lion King song right after the final whistle.

Honestly USL feels like such a random crapshoot from watching the Rowdies that I wouldn't be confident hiring any coach from there.
