For those of you who have been living under a rock, the United States men’s soccer team won their group at the World Cup and have made it through to the elimination round which, for us, starts tomorrow afternoon against Ghana. To get you ready, here are some World Cup related links and thoughts.
To start with, check out this awesome video of reaction to the group-clinching goal by Landon Donovan to keep us alive.
For those of you who are planning to watch tomorrow – and really why wouldn’t you – and want to seem to know what you are talking about, here is a pretty good preview of the game and here is the roster.
Finally, check out the hilarious video of John Oliver welcoming the USA to the third world because of their soccer winnings.
Prediction for tomorrow’s game:
The United States will score 4 goals to Ghana’s 1. However, two of those goals will be disallowed so the USA will end up winning 2-1. And, post-game, the NBA will announce they are replacing all of their officials with soccer refs. Enjoy the game!
