2nd round bound

 I left the house this morning at 7 am and headed over the hill to watch the game with the boys.  Nerves were getting the best of me, so I passed on breakfast.  I can’t even imagine what the USA World Cup team was feelling.  The Algerians put one off the crossbar in the 7th minute and we all thought it was going in.  Thank god it didn’t, but our defensive lapses are getting tiresome.   With another goal called back by the linesman, I thought this World Cup was rigged…it still may be.  Algeria really only had one or two other chances and with Tim Howard in the nets, we are secure.  As a team, the USA showed up to play.  We can pass, run and shoot the ball.  We can also control the tempo.  It could have been 4-0 if those unlucky shots would have gone in.  If we continue to play hard and make the scoring chances count, the US could go further than expected.  They do infact belong on the field and maybe, just maybe, the rest of the US of A will get behind them and show some respect to the world’s finest game – futbol….or soccer. Beat Ghana….it is possible.
