I'm not sure many of our professional athletes could run for 90 straight minutes

well.. if you watch Soccer, they dont run for long stretches at a time. Except the Algerians. Those dudes must have wheels on their asses.

USA USA USA

There is nothing more satisfying then crushing the hopes and dreams of a third world country.

Great game- I admit I thought they were headed for a tie and plane tickets home. So many scoring chances though- the game could have been 5-0 if not for their goalie, who played really really well. Another goal disallowed for BS reasons though (he was onside) makes me wonder how far they'll be able to get since it seems like they can't catch a break after burning all their karma on that soft goal against England.

I knew the second they won because of the deafening jackasses here at work who thought our break room was a sports bar.

If Soccer were played at that pace on a consistant basis I would watch more of it. And yeah, the Algerian goalie was a man.

You certainly have a clear path to the finals. Niether Ghana or Uruguay look as good as the Dutch do this year.

Plus, they beat Brazil, which is always satisfying no matter where you're at in the world.

I saw a live feed from Amsterdam on ESPN. There must have been 250k people crammed into a square all dressed in orange and chanting USA USA USA.

I work for a German company, and a bunch of them are going to be in tomorrow... I think I'll root for Holland, just because there's only 1 Dutch guy and he can't make as much noise as all those Germans. (The break room is on the other side of the wall I sit on and I do a lot of my work on the phone... bleh!)
