Well, it looks like I missed a day. Whoopsie-doodle. In my defense, things got a little crazy on Friday. The big news is obviously the USA getting knocked out by Sweden on penalty kicks. There will be plenty to go through in that postmortem but I think it’s safe to say that USA got completely football’d. But the game is the game, and sometimes you play better and still lose.
