What an AWESOME game! I know this is late news, but I didn't wake up at 5:30am to watch the game (like I should have), rather taping it to watch after work yesterday. So yesterday, I starved myself from Web sites so I wouldn't find out the news (unfortunately, I was doing research for a co-worker on newsweek.com and it was on their front page, so I found out early that the US won, but no score or how the game actually played).
Anyway ... WOW! What a game! NO ONE could have seen that coming and I'm proud to be an American at this point. Last World Cup, we didn't even win a game ... this year, we win against a team that went undefeated through the European qualifiers! Take that, Europe! *laugh*
Best moment: The diving header goal from Brian McBride
Worst moment: Giving Portugal a 2nd goal from our own player (Jeff Agoos). I don't think a "Columbia" will happen when he returns home, but why do I think that goal will haunt us when it comes to the 2nd stage?
Our next challenge will be Korea - a tough game to play in front of the raucous Korean home crowd and a team that sounded played/defeated Poland.
