If you’ve been watching the Olympic soccer competition, chances are good that you’re now in a catatonic state -- drooling on your shirt, immobilized by boredom and trying desperately to suck down enough cans of Red Bull and 5-Hour Energy to keep your peepers open. Soccer in London got off to a rousing start with a 0-0 tie between Mexico and one of those Koreas -- West Korea, I think, or maybe Southeast Korea. Several more 0-0 ties followed, though one television analyst said he remembered a game back in the 1984 Olympics when one of the teams actually scored a goal.
