Performance of the Week (POTW) 6/9-6/15

Plenty to choose from this week. I’m going with the Dutch national soccer that crushed France in Euro ’08 pool play by a count of 4-1. Someone get me a video of that match. The Netherlands abused the French. Arjen Robben’s goal was a classic. Who gets your POTW?

I only saw highlights, but Rafael Nadal taking down Roger Federer in straight sets (6-1, 6-3, 6-0) gets my POTW for the week. Wow! That’s like taking down Mike Tyson in his prime. Nadal matched Bjorn Borg winning his fourth consecutive French title. Who gets your POTW?

Friday Flick 1.9

Friday was the anniversary of this classic game. Check out the graphic advertising the NASL game between the Cosmos and Rowdies. How about John McLeod drawing up plays on the floor using chalk.
