Ok, all kidding aside, who would have thought we’d beat Ghana? And that Germany wouldn’t? Who would have suspected that Portugal was going to go down in flames against Germany and then, in the last 20 seconds or so of their game against us, score a tying goal?
This is why I enjoy watching World Cup soccer. The US has, historically, sucked a big bag of dicks. And yet, here we are, playing against the big boys in the so-called “Group of Death” and holding our own. Amazing.
On Thursday we play Germany. A tie? We might advance to the next round. A win? We will. Let’s go USA!
