    Get ready to be shouted at by Brandi Chastain for two hours… 🙂

    She is terrible. I feel like I’m in trouble.

    Somehow the US has survived this tournament with Carli Lloyd playing to her number rather than her position. She’s up way too high against a quick team. Might be trouble there.

    Wow, got away with one on that FK.

    Ugh … that missed handball call totally soured me on following this match. This refereeing is ridiculous.

      I dunno, it was a scramble in front of the goal. Should have been called but maybe the refs didn’t see it. Otherwise I thought the refereeing was pretty decent this match.

    It’s not a great US victory unless the goalkeeper saves our asses.

      And our keeper has hair! Well, Keller had some hair for that great Brazil victory:

    Man, that was another intense game. Play it again tomorrow and it could easily go the other way.

    Also a major improvement from Carli Lloyd compared to last summer’s tournament. 😛

    LOL at the booing of Blatter.
