Godfather's Day

After watching and re-watching the US-Italy match, I have two thoughts.

1. That is where the team has grown. Instead of folding after a poor performance in the first game, they came out willing to take chances, to force the game, to WORK. Good for you guys. Pride restored.
2. Uruguayan referee Jorge Larrionda got a call at some point on Saturday informing him that his children were being "watched" by two rather large wiseguys in dark suits.

I thought the two reds were justified, but the second yellow to Pope was quick, probably too quick. Refs gotta know the situation there.

I thought Dempsey was a man, and Keller made a few nice saves (but has a tendency to make ordinary ones look "spectacular"), Pope was pretty much a moron and wont be missed.

Arena shouldve substituted Eddie Lewis in the last 10-15 minutes, I mean, you're 9 on 10 and you dont use one of your substitutions!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

That's Macha-esque.
