Looking good for Europe. 4-0 up and dont think Shane van Boening is playing well enough to trouble Jayson Shaw in the last match of the night.

This kid Filler is definitely from the MVG/ Cadby school of celebrations. Thought it was brilliant yesterday when Dennis Hatch refused to shake his hand after getting beat and Joshua really didn't give a shit.

US selection process is set up so they dont have to pick him ever again, sadly. Captain picks 5 players, all but one have to be from the Top 10 of the rankings so he can easily not pick Earl.

Remember the finger glove he came up with? Genius. Watching him strop was always the best thing about the event.

Have watched this every year since it"s inception in 1994.

For me along with the Darts World Championship and the X Factor final, the Mosconi Cup signifies how close we are to Christmas.

Remember the 1995 Mosconi Cup when it went on until the early hours of Monday morning, with Jimmy White winning the deciding match against "Machine Gun" Lou Butera.

Anyway back to tonight and USA have cut the deficit to 1-2. 23 racks so far and only 2 really poor shots, with 1 of them costing Team USA the first match.

Great comeback from the USA, but got the run of the balls in those last 3 matches.

Shaw was really up for that first match. Looks like it will be 4-3 to USA and have to say this is much more competitive than I expected it to be.

Had a feeling that Kaci might be the weak link in the Europe team. Too much expectation.

These pressure situations suit some but not others. Kaci has been very disappointing, but look at how good Joshua Filler was last year when he won the MVP.
