Not much time to make a long post today, but I do want to say how impressed I was Saturday with the U.S. draw against Italy in the World Cup. Playing a man down for almost the entire second half against one of the elite squads in the world (and still attacking the goal even then, making the Italians look really bad), being able to hold the fort for the tie was huge. That's probably the most I've ever been into any soccer game ever, and I've always enjoyed watching the sport.
Now they have a huge Thursday game against Ghana. Here's hoping that they can keep the momentum going and make their way into the second round.
