So I come home from Costco today & decide to see whats on the tv. Oh, UEFA-what the hell, it's something. Sampdoria of Italy against Bremen of Germany. Samp is kicking the Germans butts 2-0 lol. Then they score a third, & the announcers are like, "now there through to the playoffs unless Bremen can score. Huh?
Apparently Bremen had scored 3 goals in their first game & Sampdoria only 1. Meaning 3-0 was really 3-3. Oh brother. This has to be the stupidest thing I have ever heard of. Bremen actually scored a goal in injury time, another idiotic thing about soccer, so guess what? They had to go to "extra time". I turned the tv off. Ate lunch, went on the UEFA website & found out that Bremen scored a second goal, meaning even though they lost the game 3-2, UEFA says they won on "aggregate" 5-4.
I got an idea. Why don't we do this in the NFL playoffs. Then if Pittsburgh wins their first playoff game 35-whatever, & NE wins 17-whatever, then when they play each other, it doesn't matter if they lose to the Pats, it's the aggregate that puts them in the Super Bowl! Feel free to laugh. Really soccer? This is a good idea?
