It's a Draw!

Finally the soccer god's look down on the U.S. and smile. In case you didn't know already we- and I say we like I am involved- got put in a group with England, Algeria and Slovenia. I like the odds of the U.S. coming in at least second in that group. The other upside is a rad first match with England. Do I favor the U.S.? No. Do I think they can but it on England? Hell yes! Without Davies it won't be the explosive showdown I would like, but we already know we have a better keeper who isn't scared of English opposition- witness Howard's awesome penalty stop on Defoe this weekend. Also, the prospect of Onyewu-if healthy- getting in Rooney's head is cracking me up already. One point, I have often spoken of the force that was Tony Sanneh at the 2002 World Cup. I don't know who on this team can be that, but I would like them to include Kyle Beckerman in the team. I could see his work in the midfield really frustrating the English side.

I watched the draw with Mushrush, who was upset about the group France got in with. They did get lucky. I wish I had the kind of money that would allow me to go to the games. Young and broke, only slightly better than old and broke.

attempting to silence the voices in my head.
