Robert Green gifted the United States a goal but the US deserved the point. Jozy Altidore's shot hit the post after Green got a hand on it and England was fortunate not to be down 2-1 at that point.
Tim Howard was fantastic in goal for the United States.
England is very slow in the back with Terry, King, and Carragher on the pitch at the same time.
Cuauhtemoc Blanco played 20 minutes for Mexico on Friday and looked okay but didn't do anything outstanding. Blanco's days as a 90 minute player are probably behind him. Aguirre is optomizing his abilities by bringing him on as a second half substitution. That being said, is a guy who can't go the full 90 every week worth designated player money?
South Korea and Germany looked very good against their competition this weekend. Argentina could have had several more goals if not for Nigeria's keeper Vincent Enyeama.
Neither Slovenia nor Algeria looked particularly impressive in their match. Algeria's keeper Faouzi Chaouchi allowed a goal almost as ridiculous as Green's howler.
Patrick Nyarko was probably really happy to know that Ghana's 1-0 victory over Slovenia marked the first World Cup victory by an African nation.
The Cubs really suck. The White Sox suck only slightly less. The Fire will have an opportunity to garner some attention before the Bears begin play. All they have to do is not suck.
I see the Revolution drew over 2,000 people for a World Cup viewing party on Saturday. That's only slighly less than the actual attendance at most Revs matches.
The World Cup is the best tournament in sports. You can have your NCAA hoops.
