Who are you guys picking? I have Brazil over Argentina 4-3 in one of the all time great matches. I think the USA will surprise many by making it to the Quarterfinals after beating Ghana & Portugal to get out of the Group, and then Belgium in the first stage of the knockout round.
I hope I’m right!
On the eve of the 2014 World Cup, let us pause a moment to consider all that #10 has done for American Soccer this millennium.
Thank you, Landon Donovan. We wouldn’t be where we are today without you.

Thank you to Mr. Thorn for this awesome pdf of the July 19, 1902 edition of Sporting Life (“Devoted to Baseball, Trap Shooting and General Sport”). The Charlotte Hornets Baseball Club (including outfielder Archibald “Moonlight” Graham) is featured on the cover in honor of their 25 game Consecutive Win Streak.

I have three Plaay.com games in my collection: History Maker Baseball, Second Season, and Soccer Blast. Generally, I’d say that game designer Keith Avallone’s instruction booklets might rank behind only Strat-O-Matic Baseball and/or APBA Baseball in terms of clarity of instructions, and functionality and design of the booklets themselves.
Soccer Blast is no exception, however, the attack process (which makes up a large portion of your actual gaming time) can be a bit confounding. To help put it all in order for myself, I drew up this handy-dandy flow chart. I hope it’s useful to you, too.
Originally I planned to include color copies of this flow chart as one of the freebies in the OneForFive.com newsletter that is coming out on July 1st, but after reading some threads in the Delphi Forums where it seemed like more than a few others were struggling to get the game’s attack process down, too, I thought it would do more good to post the chart here. If you use this and some of the other downloads from the blog, I hope you’ll consider supporting the site by buying a copy of or a subscription to the newsletter.
