So much love for Team USA right now....




y'all will forgive the uncharacteristic fit of nationalist pride, right? *iz sheepish*
  • Yeah, I'll give you that..*g* Amazing, talk about snatching victory from the jaws of defeat.
    • thanks *g* so amazing--the difference between finishing first in the group and going home--

      sometimes (okay, often) I just love sports, and mini-dramas-of-the-spirit they provide--here was Donovan later: "Sometimes in soccer you have games like that where you get a lot of chances and they don't go in," Donovan said. "The only thing you can control is if you keep playing."

      into the 91st minute, always!
  • By an amazing quirk of timing - I was on vacation today and was able to watch the entire match live! I have NEVER been so riveted by a soccer match.

    Thanks for posting some glee I could share in!
    • You're welcome--thanks for sharing the glee!

      I was determinedly not watching--since, you know, I was "working." But all that meant was that I clicked on the score every 30 seconds. I had already resigned myself to them going home when I saw the little box change over!

      But I kept thinking, they're late scorers, always, because, as I sententiously told my son, they never give up!

      Here was Donovan, later: "Sometimes in soccer you have games like that where you get a lot of chances and they don't go in," Donovan said. "The only thing you can control is if you keep playing."
  • Of course, I found out from my friend on the other side of the world...

    But that is very cool! Love the picture!
    • Hey, if a far-flung Brit can't keep you informed about the world of American footie, then I'm just not doing my job properly..*g*
    • lol! that's what the internet is for--I've found out way more important things only from FB or LJ.

      So many gorgeous pictures of those guys!
  • WOOT! :D!

    *cheers with*
  • At least some of us have something to be proud of! France did so bad...
    • I know, bb--I'm sorry! France has such a great tradition, too--I remember the year they won the cup--was it '98?
      • Yes, it was 98. Twelve years ago! It's starting to feel like a long time... I don't care a lot about football (sorry, soccer :P), but it's a matter of national pride!
  • Woohoo!!! That was such an intense game, and a great goal!!
