Congratulations to the American soccer squad for beating the best team in the world, Spain, 2-0. I know nothing about soccer, but I heard the chances of America beating Spain, who had not 1, but 2 guys with one word names. America had like, google-1 odds of winning this game. But they did.
So, even I who find soccer as interesting as watching the Home Decorating Channel, will give propers where they are due. Games like this are the reason I watch sports. Eli beating the Patriots on the most incredible play I've ever seen in football. The Yankees down 2 games to 0 in 1996 (losing the first two games by a combined score of 16-1, and heading down to Atlanta...and sweeping the next 4. And of course...."Do you believe in miracles?"
So, congratulations to the USA soccer squad. Enjoy this time. it's yours.
