World Cup Catch Up: Team USA! uh..What Happened?
More Dang. We (USA) really stunk up the stadium in our World Cup Opener.
Yeah we were up against the #2 team in the world, but the way the guys were (not) moving, we could have been beaten by #102. Interestingly, I listened to a 'off-tube' media feed from England at work, and when I got home my "soccer stars" (one past college player and one current one) had all the same critiques of the American 'side' as the Brits did, although the two Brit commentators expressed theirs in a more civilized manner. For those who don't know, the US is in one of two "Groups of Death", and we have the 'pleasure' of facing Italy next. Yeow.
