the blue short reference was referring to brazil, who wears yellow & green shirts, blue shorts. but at least australia, brazil, argentina, england, etc., have classic unis. the US squad keeps changing them every time. they keep the white and blue, but can't figure out a bloody style. at least the raiders figured out that even if you can't win on the field, at least have a classic look while you're losing.
the US hasn't looked great, but c'mon. what did you expect? they've been laying turds the last few world cups. and that game today was exciting. this only rolls around once every 4 years, so enjoy it while it lasts.
beating algeria isn't a momentous achievement, but it's more than the english could do.
at least we're not france--they imploded like ... well ... the raiders. did they put russell in? what do they call skittles in south africa? is monsieur bill callahan their coach? are they "l'equipe plus stupide d'europe"?
now that england has made it thru to the next round, i'll break out the england cap the crusader raider gave me, and i'll have a drink from the england flask. viva mexico. screw ghana.
i don't have a bracket guide handy ... can argentina and brazil play each other in the final?
