Let's talk body language.San Diego goalkeeper Victor Nogueira was given a red card Saturday when he gave what referee Herb Silva interpreted as "The Italian Salute" during the Sockers' 8-2 victory over the Blast.The incident, which could carry a one-game suspension if viewed seriously enough, occurred during one of the longest-running goal-keeping shows in Major Soccer League history. Tonight, against the Tacoma Stars, Nogueira is expected to set the Sockers record for consecutive games played by a goalkeeper at 44. If he keeps the streak alive, he will set the league mark at 52 on March 28 at Wichita.
