I have given up on directv and the hassle about buying the espn packagae or whatever. They have the most insane call center on earth

Anyone knows of any good and not so expensive sports bar that is great for hanging around and watching the matches in the Denver or the suburbs area? My friends told me of Champs in the park meadows mall, but it's too noisy and will it be weird to go hang in there alone? Not too many soccer fans here, I even scouted around meetup, and I only found English fans congregating for English matches. But given my attitude, they will crucify me

I don't drink. So it would be good if they have nice fat free and gluten free menu too

Suggestions please. I don't wanna miss the key games

I was rooting for the USA to humiliate England. Was disappointed with the draw. But with the English goalie's ham hands, even my grandma can send a pumpkin into his post LMAO.

Well, you can try live streaming online. If you are good with proxies you can watch on BBC/ITV/CBC. Or find a person willing to let you borrow their login info from Comcast and you can watch on ESPN3 online. You can also catch ESPN3 for free on college campuses and military bases, just don't scream 'GOAL!' too loudly in the campus library.

Check this out

World Cup 2010: Brick-by-brick fussball - England 1-1 USA | Video | Football | guardian.co.uk

With that kind of masterpiece goalkeeping, the USA can easily go up 3-0

England's the most overrated team on the planet, pumped up by the hallucinated British media. Unfortunately, they're just paper tigers. Let's see who cries this time, during the exit

IDK if they do it for all games, or just the USA ones... but my husband went to watch the game this weekend @ McCabe's in Southland's Mall. He said there were quite a few soccer fans there. His country (Croatia) did not make it into the World Cup - but he sported his Croatian jersey anyway. Our good friend is British, so of course he was sporting his GB jersey. The hubs said there were a lot of GB jersies there, but surprisingly a lot of others as well - including France, Brazil, and a couple others that I can't remember. If it's not too inconvienent a drive for you, you might call out there before hand and see if they are broadcasting the games you're interested in. Don't know if they have the type of food you referenced before, but we've gone for both the bar aspect and gone in to eat with the kids before. It's a pretty mixed bag of people in there most days.

Jordan's on Evans is showing (so they claim) every match. Don't know about the gluten free menu, but they are right next DU and they seemed to have a fair amount of variety on their menu. It's actually a pretty nice place (and pretty good brew for those into that sort of thing.)

ebeth, its not an gb jersey, its an England shirt!! Gb stands forGreat Britain, which is England, Scotland, and Wales combined.Just thought I'd say! Good luck USA you played very well> Asfor England, I've been watching them for many years, so I'mnot surprised by our goalie. But we'll raise ourselves for onegood performance before we go home, we always do.

Sorry but you know as well as I do that's one of those rare mistakes anybody can make. Remember Colombia?

I don't support England, but the fact remains that they have a strong soccer culture with a lot of history while USA does not.

If anyone saw today's match, England could well have been trumped by the USA
