So the US got knocked out of the World Cup. I’m pretty disappointed. We got some pretty bad calls from the referees in our last two matches. Oh well. At least I feel some allegiance to some other countries that actually have decent chances of doing well. Spain plays today in a game that doesn’t matter for them, since they are already through to the next round. Rumors are they they will play all the bench warmers to let the stars rest for a bit (and get rid of their yellow cards). Still, I hope they beat up on Saudi Arabia.
