The World Cup

Soccer can be a cruel game. Many times the score isn't indicative of which team played the best.

For a game that probably lacks in significance you'd think the USA won the most vital contest of the year 1-1. I coached youth soccer long enough to have four of my children play for me. I've experienced my share of ties and know they're bittersweet for both sides, even in under the best circumstances.

World Cup play can be like that. The other game yesterday that left me wondering was Argentina and Nigeria. What does it take to get Argentina interested in playing? That should have been a 5-0 affair. Truth be told, if yesterday was any indication it's doubtful this pool will produce a member of the final four.

What's up with the vuvuzela? I suppose they're a huge improvement over the hooligans.
