Futbol Love

You know my family loves the soccer. World Cup has been on the 'must see' list for almost a year now. The U.S. won Group C at the World Cup after a dramatic 1-0 victory over Algeria on Wednesday. Landon Donovan scored the winning goal in the 91st minute as the U.S. went from being on the brink of World Cup elimination to winning its group and advancing to the Round of 16.

Seriously, do you know what's it's like to word watch a game for 90 minutes, just hoping someone will score? Just once? So for the first time in 80 years, the US will advance to the round of 16. Finally, the US shows it's soccer team some love, global style.

After I watched this video a couple of times, I thought, "Would this be the crowd reaction if they just realized that Jesus had come back? Would it be MY reaction?"

I like your seldom seen sincere side. I was feeling pretty guilty about it myself which is why I thought it would be good to share my misery with everyone.

As you can see, I'm having trouble with my layout. I wish I would've paid attention in HTML class. Let's trade layouts!
