national team blitkrieged
ugh. all true soccer fans despise the german team. the teutonic robots beat up on the u.s. national team today, winning 4-1 after a three-goal flurry early in the second half.
i watched the game and i'm not too worried. first of all, we brought almost no one who will be anywhere near the pitch come the world cup finals. second, this was played in dortmund in front of 70,000 germans. and there was a bright spot:

bobby convey, who made a name for himself as a teenager with DC united, is now learning his craft with reading FC in england and really picking up his game. his technique is really, really good. unfortunately, he plays the same position as my favorite player, damarcus beasley, left midfielder, so it should be interesting to see those two battle it out for playing time at the wc.
