This morning at work I was mostly listening to but somethimes watching the US play Algeria.  What an exciting game. (I am watching it now, at home, having DVR'd it.  Are DVRs great or what?)  Next up, Ghana.  I haven't seen Ghana play but I recorded the game with Germany, so I will watch it later.  As for the US team, I think that what they lack in skill  they make up for in effort.  They just don't stop, from I can tell.  Not the best team, though, so I am not super optimistic.  Even if they get by Ghana, it is an uphill road.

I have seen a number of other games and have really enjoyed watching the South American teams, but for the RIDICULOUS phoney-baloney injuries and dives.  I  really wish FIFA would do something about this.  Of course, it would have to start with the pros, I think, since all of these guys are professionals.  Kick a few fakers out and that would put an end to it. But taking dives and faking injury isn't anything new in soccer...

  1. I watched that game and I was so pissed at the design of the american attack that I almost quit watching. Great heart and at least less fake injuries than the other actresses in pro soccer.
