If you are a heart patient, please take your medications before watching the US.
All those missed chances in front of goal looked like they would come back to haunt us. And it just became more and more nerve wracking as time wound down. We are the cardiac kids of this World Cup, making life hard for ourselves. But we have shown time and time again, amazing resilience, amazing strength of character, and an ability to strike when least expected.
I am still sorting out the sequence in my head but Jozy Altidore had a lot to do with Landon Donovan's stunning strike in the 90th minute. Donovan disappeared in the second half but he was there when we needed him.
This was the shot that was heard across the world. With all due respect to Paul Caliguiri, we have a new one!
Team USA goes through. How can you not love them now? How can you not love the wonderful, crazy, exhilarating sport that is football aka soccer. We forgive all the puny mortals, the diving cheaters, the atrocious refereeing, the low scoring matches - the haters of this game throw at us at every opportune moment. 300 lbs steroid laden, armour clad linebackers have nothing on this sport!
