I wanted to puke after I saw the display of pure dominance that the Czech’s put over the US team. I did not get to watch the game live, but I did tape it and planned to watch it all… but after seeing the US deflate like a balloon after the first goal the only thing that I could stomach was watching the beautiful goals that were scored against them.
None of the goals were cheap or opportunistic, they were all superior goals. I was looking forward to watching the US, who was supposed to have its best team ever, play with tons of heart and advance past the “group of death.” Now I am left to hope that they can beat both Italy and Ghana. Italy is going to be a formidable opponent, but they can be defeated, well they HAVE to be defeated. Ghana scares me a little more because they are going to play with tons of heart and try to at least get a W from the Americans. The Czech’s looked too solid and the worse I see them doing is maybe tie the Italians.
