You know how bad I’d like to see a team playing on Thursday Night Football destroy the NFL Network’s set after a big win? Real bad. Leave it to the Swedish soccer team to be the ones who started a trend this week by destroying a Eurosport sideline TV set after qualifying for the 2018 World Cup.

(Wouldn’t it have been nice to see the USMNT destroy a FS1 set?)

I feel like this is something we need to see more of. Those sets are worthless anyway. It’s like the cheapest engineered plastic boards on the market and nothing else. I need players destroying an ESPN set after a big college football win while they’re screaming, “Nobody gave us a chance. Nobody believed in us.”

Why the crazy response from Sweden?

They forced a draw, got a ticket to the Cup & knocked Italy out of the World Cup. I’m not kidding.

Italy was in a state of shock, dismay and bitter recrimination on Tuesday after the national football team failed to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1958.

Italy were eliminated from next year’s tournament in Russia after a scoreless draw against Sweden in Milan on Monday night produced a 1-0 aggregate loss in a two-leg play-off.

No Italy. No Chile. No Netherlands. No USA. Maybe it’s time to consider a 48 team World Cup….oh wait a minute.
