Uh-oh! Things are not looking good for Team USA in World Cup action: first, they aren’t wearing red uniforms. Second, the American team captain, Claudio Reyna, was carted away on a stretcher after losing the ball to a player on Ghana’s team — who immediately scored a goal. I am not sure if Reyna broke a leg or if he was suicidal, but either way, he’s under observation.

Okay, my peeps, Team USA is still not looking good. They are playing as if the entire team is suffering from a hangover. Considering this is a “do or die” game, you’d think Team USA would be hothothot. But even the fans have more energy than the team does. Maybe someone should poke an elbow into another American eyeball; maybe that would fire up the team?
[And yet few minutes later than that]
Okay, Dempsey just scored a goal for the USA, so now the game is tied AND yes, the USA is suddenly wide awake. The coffee must have kicked in.
BUT, at the half; Ghana is ahead, 2-1. Yes, Team USA gave Team Ghana a free kick, which, statistically speaking, is more likely than not to end up in another goal.
