Think I'll head here for the weekend. See ya.

Why is this guy still playing soccer at this level?
This is the third time Suarez has bitten an opponent on the field. Third time. BITTEN. On camera, every single one. It makes no sense that he is able to step out onto a pitch anymore.

If the result was a bit of a letdown, that's only because the caliber of play throughout the US' matchup with Portugal was so high. We looked awesome. Like a real world-cup-contender level team. We moved the ball well, we anticipated player movement well, good touch, good ideas, good control.
The heartbreaking goal from a lackluster and fairly pathetic Portugal side in the closing moments of time was hard to swallow. Hard to even believe. And it complicates getting out of group play. But, the upside--seeing a US side play this well on this stage--far outweights the negative.
Come on Yanks!!!

This is it. This is huge--especially after seeing Portugal play earlier today. We get by Ghana and our chances look very good.
We are a better team than last we played them. We have the desire for revenge on our side. If we thrive in the rain, we can win this thing.
COME ON YANKS!!!!
Hats off to my 2nd favorite team in this tournament on their horribly impressive performance today.
Let's just hope that the drubbing they handed to the Portuguese side is indicative of what Ronaldo & Co. are capable of, rather than a catalyst for them to rally around for their contest with the US.

Hard to think of things that aren't soccer right now, but Le Tour this year is shaping up to be an exciting few weeks. Contador is back on form. Froome is recovering but troubled. Nibali is a slow-building mystery.
And then there's Garmin rider Andrew Talansky. Wins the Dauphine right out from under a resurgent Contador. Quiet, deadly. The Pit Bull is an exciting addition to American cycling.
