Sorry everyone (all three of you that is), but I've been out of it with the World Cup going on. The USA play Ghana today at 10 a.m., and if you haven't been watching, what I'm looking for is a USA win v. Ghana and Italy to beat the Czech Republic.
More importantly, today my wife and I celebrate our ninth anniversary of wedded bliss. We met here in DC in graduate school and somehow haven't deconstructed one another yet or managed to finish our doctorates. But that's all Guinness under the bridge, as they say.
We have too many books. We don't have enough.
Now the USA game is on.
UPDATE: The USA looked like a bunch of scared seventh graders going up against the ninth grade. Granted the referee was card happy (on both teams) and awarded a bullshit penalty to Ghana, but still even if it remained 1-1, the USA would be out of the cup. They wouldn't be able to define "offensive creativity" if you handed them a dictionary, and all of them today seemed unwilling to shoot the ball. You cannot score if you do not shoot. Cute passes are cute passes, but goals are goals.
