Having coached my daughters club soccer team I have been following the World Cup Matches and today the USA advanced by beating Algeria 1-0 in dramatic fashion. We should not lose to Aleria in tiddlywinks much less soccer. I understand there may not be a lot of scoring but the sheer skill, atlheticism and startegy make these matches fun to watch especially given the state of the Houston Astros. On a positive note we are only 10 weeks from College Football--now thats real excitement.
