Well Would You Look at That

The US won in the 91st minute of today's game against Algeria, staving off elimination, winning their group, and allowing them to advance to the Round of 16.

At the 89 minute when Beasely got that yellow card and Algeria made another substitution I was beginning to resign myself to another American disappointment, but then Tim Howard (the goalkeeper) started a fastbreak, and all of a sudden it looks like we can get a very favorable draw in the next round.

I'm not usually a TV yeller, but I totally was today. I couldn't believe it. Bless those players, they played their little hearts out.

It's been an amazing sports week. There really is nothing like seeing your team down, on the brink of defeat, only to comeback and snatch victory from the gaping jaws of defeat. There are going to be a lot of good games coming up in the Round of 16. Here's to the games coming up this weekend!


And now for some video of the goal...
