The US just won their group and advances to the group of 16 in the World Cup, and they did so in a way that could not have been more dramatic. I spent the entire game miserable, marveling at the not one but two good goals that the referees waved off, which would’ve made it decisive much sooner than it actually happened.
I don’t care if we don’t make it past the next stage. The US’ stated goal was to make it to the knockout rounds, and they did so. Everyone knows we don’t have a World Cup-winning team, but seeing games like this, I feel like it could be a real possibility in the future.
I can’t imagine not being a sports fan. This is one of the few things that unites people everywhere, and it’s incredible.
