World Cup Satisfaction

It’s never an awesome feeling when your team is eliminated from the World Cup, and, yes, I think we could have and should have won that game against Ghana. As I said when they scored, “Start Ricardo Clark, give up a goal: that’s the law.”

But you can’t fault this team. They played awesome. They played as well as they could have and got beaten anyway, largely because they left it all on the field a few nights before.

And we got to have that moment, the greatest moment I’ve ever seen in a sporting event, Donovan’s goal. I still get weepy when I watch the celebration videos. That made the whole exercise worth it.If you haven’t heard Andres Cantor’s call of the goal, you must listen. You don’t need to speak Spanish to understand what that goal means.
