    Lets go yanks.

    Leaving Donovan back home is the best decision made for this team since ditching Onyewu.

    I get what you're trying to do, and there is a bad case of flopping with the Euros in soccer.

    But... dude could have had a cramp, achilles blowout, etc. Stranger injuries have happened.

    Especially when you run for a solid 90 minutes a game.

    Except it was a dive

    5. Daniele de Rossi (Italy)Match: Italy vs. Paraguay
    It was this "year's worst dive," says A. Isaac at Guyism. "And surprise, surprise, it came from the Italians." Daniele de Rossi here pretends to have been tackled away from the ball, even though no Paraguayan player even touched him. "Congrats, Mr. De Rossi" — this move gives you a spot on the list of "great soccer divers of all time."

    Ideally USA will be eliminated ASAP so ESPN will stop covering it.

    Sorry American soccer fans.

    I actually enjoy the World Cup because I love international competition, but we have no shot to even get through the first group, so **** it.

    If you follow US Soccer, you would know that we have more than a shot to get through.

    Will it happen? Depends on which US team shows up.

    That would be my first issue. I follow US Soccer one week before the WC and then watch them until they're eliminated. The second issue is just about everyone on TV says we have no shot, so it must be true.

    I honestly don't think they will get through. I think they will draw with Ghana in the 1st game and lose the rest.

    People just assume the US will beat Ghana, but I just can't see it. Ghana always seem to play teams tough in the World Cup. I just think drawing Ghana in the first game is the worst thing that could happen to the US. A fully polished US team could beat Ghana, but I can't see the US being fully polished in their very first game. It would've been better for the US to play Ghana in their 2nd or 3rd game.
