USA: Very Disappointing

Before the workload roof caved in on me (I'll write about that separately later), I got to watch the USA's final game in this year's World Cup this morning. Things have been too busy for me to comment on the results until now. While I think the referee was wrong on calling that penalty kick, it wouldn't have mattered that much, as the USA had to win the game, not draw. I'm very disappointed in the USA team, which was supposed to be better than that. Congratulations to Ghana for coming in as the assumed doormat of the group and instead moving on, while the #2-ranked Czechs also go home. (I don't see Ghana getting past Brazil, though.)
