MY HEART HURTS

I’ve racked my brain all day to come up with a positive spin for the heinous debacle that was USA v Czech Republic.

Okay, here it is, and it can be summed up in one word: SANDBAGGING.

Bear with me for a moment.

Logically, it must be true that the boys were pretending to be timid, frightened, and totally lacking in both conviction and skill. See, because that way, Italy will take them lightly and WHAM, we kick their paisan butts all the way back to the Eternal City. After that, and a shellacking of their own at the hands of the Czechs, Ghana will fear us, and we’ll cruise past them and into the next round.

Because, don’t you understand, that the only alternative explanation is that the boys really did come out for the most important game of their lives and proceed to play timid, frightened, convictionless and skill-less football in front of the entire world?

And that couldn’t be the answer, could it?

    Ugh…What a terrible, terrible day. I lied to my boss and told her that I had a doctor’s appt (that took 2 hours, somehow) so I could meet up with my buds and watch the game. I don’t regret it, but still…

    Me and my buds posted on our blog — glumly — on our feelings, but the tourney is certainly not over. Keep the faith.

    There are still games to be played.

    You’re right. Two good games and all is forgiven.
