I'm still stunned - I hoped for a victory but had no faith. Wow the fellas proved me wrong.

Relax. We are going to beat you on the finals. If South Africa doesn't upset us, that is.

Doesn't matter to me. All I know is we beat the #1 team in the world, which as a sidenote, is not Brazil right now (Sorry that's FIFA's ranking, not mine). For our country, that IS a big deal.

Agreed. I worry that we won't have learned our lessons from the first run-in with them!

Yeah yeah I know. Is football (or soccer as you yankees call it) still a girl's thing there? Even after David Bechkam?(sp?) But number 5 shall show you we arised from the dead. We only needed a good coach, and now we have one.

Your new coach had one of the coolest nicknames ever "Dunga - the Destroyer"...

Indeed. And he was one of the reasons we won in '94. He put order on a chaotic team. Screaming with everyone so they listened. Dunga had the team on his hand. But then, the PC-caretaker press happened.

He fought a lot with Romario, a silly primadona and a favorite of the press. suddenly everyone was complaining about Dunga's style, that he hadn't the right to scream, or talk to people like that. So he vowed to keep his month shut. And so we had '98 and the silly defeat to France. A clear case of lack of firm pulse and leadership on the team. The coach was a wimpy, the players were a bunch of playboys, and the only guy with a pulse had to keep it shut.

For anyone who's interested (or even if you're not interested), this is the furthest that the United States has ever gone in an international soccer competition*. I am really rooting for the US. Even though they got their asses spanked by Brazil in the previous round and squeaked by Spain more on luck and perseverance rather than skilled play (although Tim Howard was a beast in goal), I still have hopes that they can pull off something big against Brazil. Even if they can't, they've hopefully proven to the world (and more importantly to some people in the US) that the United States can compete in soccer at the international stage.


*The United states technically has Olympic silver and bronze medals in soccer from the 1904 Olympic games. In those games the US fielded two of the three competing teams and still lost the gold to Canada.

I wasn't so much annoyed as amused by your trite attitude. The cool thing is that your kind will die off, little by little, eventually to be replaced by people who have decent taste in sports.

Believe me, growing up in Montana and going to Weber State was a strain on my soul. I never knew who to root for.

Anyway, go team USA!
