Mason NEEDS this, Pistons, after all you've put him through
Oh, close, Altadore
Yes, that's what I was going for.
really getting to the ball more than they were in the first half, good sign...
Doesn't even look like the same teams from the first half.
They don't know how to play a boring match. It's always exciting.
This is like a hockey game. Clean it up, ref.
just needed a finisher on the receiving end.
he just kicked and hoped for the best...right to the goalie...
Whenever I see defenders stop running with their arms up and let the opposing striker through, I want to castrate them. Ghana caught a break on that.
things are beginning to get tense...
Oh, so close!!!
Altidore. Only one "a".
How much fun is this?! I'm not a big soccer fan or shall I say football fan but i'm hooked!! USA! USA! USA!
But even I didn't think that was a penalty. They were pushing each other. Us probably more than them.
time is getting short...
heartbeat is racing...
Both teams are really starting to feel the pressure. 30 minutes of extra time could be tight.
go team go...
Has anyone noticed that the US is diving almost as much as Italy did this year?
I've seen two. And nobody is rolling around grabbing their face. Let's keep a little perspective.
man I'm hungry, I haven't had time to eat!
Oh this will be fun. Kind of cool, the Nats are losing their big world cup game virginity. Will be either crazy exciting or horribly depressing at this point.
This might be the best officiated game of the Cup so far. I guess we deserved that after the last two.
...was the first to flip a coin?
Was afraid that might happen - like the start of a new game.
Wow! still 27 minutes, tons of time left
Time for wizardry and heroics...
we always allow an early goal...so we have time to get the equalizer. Again..
cost us the game. unfortunate to say the least
this is old hat for us, USA! Go team...
Ghana looked better toward the end of the 2nd half, and the announcers were correct that this was an innocent kic that the US failed to defend. Ah well, still time.
That Ghana supporter looked SCARY!
Another lost opportunity...ah, the familiar feeling in my stomach begins to grow...
You don't need to post each and every thought and drifts through your head.
Two 15 minutes periods.
What a goal from Gyan. Have to give that credit.
because he felt he was or did commit a penalty, he should of kept palying...
...but stay black and die.
they're lucky to still be on their feet...oh, and time continues to tick by...oh, but this time will be added on, won't it?
Albert Haynesworth and Todd Bertuzzi don't know what you are talking about.
basketball seems plenty popular yet people like Anderson Varejo (or however that is spelled) parade around acting like they've been shot every time someone comes close to them.
You're right. It's all about the flopping. Nothing at all to do with the low scores, long games, and it's a game we aren't that good at.
Um. Funny you pick football to compare to. The NFL is designed for short attention spans. Sure, the games are wickedly long in total time. but each play is less than 10 second. So the view has to watch for 10 second or less, then they can go get another beer. With soccer, you pretty much have to be paying attention for the entire time. It's entirely different.
