Periodic Brief World Cup Thoughts

The United States tied England today. Yeah!!  England has a great team (okay, maybe some questions at the goal-keeping position).  They may not have the type of talent they've had in years past, but they are still one of the best teams in the world. So, this was a tremendous accomplishment for the U.S. and a big disappointment for the English.  I thought Tim Howard and Landon Donovan played particularly well.  We were a bit tentative at the back and sometimes our guys looked tired.  But we'll take the draw.

The South Koreans were fun to watch and may be a sleeper team.  The Argentines were also fun to watch, particularly Messi--what a player.  The Nigerians were frustrating, though their keeper deserves a raise.
