Sorry. Just had to be the 1,503th blogger to deploy that lame historical/cinematic reference.
In all seriousness, prepare for 90 minutes of sheer hell. Sure, Ghana could blow us out. Or we could blow them out. But somehow I feel like this one will be fought on the knife’s edge. Ghana is formidable, but seems like the sort of side we match up well against—if we can contain their speed and interrupt their flow, we can look to counter fast out of midfield. And pray. We should do lots of prayin’.
Win or lose (or draw, which will come to the same thing as losing), I just want a game USA can be proud of. Fun! Goals! More blood from Brian McBride (if he plays, which I’m still against).
We’ll see you on the dawn patrol.
