Crap. Forgot to put S. Korean keeper on my team.

29 07 2008

So, I have an MLS Fantasy team (gotta get to the MLS Cup somehow – I figure I can still move up from 2000th place to take it all). When starting my fantasy team, I noticed that if the goalkeeper scores, you get 25 points when you only get 10 for a forward/midfielder goal and 15 if a defender scores (no, own goals don’t count). But I was thinking, when do goalkeepers ever score? There are the cases when down by 7 goals, last 5 minutes of the game, EVERYONE pushes forward, but how often do those really happen?  The likelihood of the goalkeeper scoring from their usual area of play is slim. But Jung Sung-Ryong, keeper for the South Korean Olympic Team, did just that against Cote D’Ivoire (Ivory Coast – who the US team plays July 30 at 6:30am ET). So I missed out on 25 points.  For sure that would have put me into the lead (or at least up a few hundred spots…) [Before anyone asks, no, MLS Fantasy team has only MLS players.] In case you missed it, it is a must watch. And hopefully will teach all goalkeepers an important lesson – don’t play too far off your line. Bad things happen. And then you have to try not to laugh on camera, after initially being mad of course, that you allowed such a stupid goal.
