U.S. beats Ghana in their World Cup 2014 opener

NATAL, Brazil (AP) — After 90 brutal minutes of end-to-end action, the Americans emerged with a thrilling 2-1 win over Ghana.

U.S. fans were screaming for revenge Monday after the Black Stars eliminated the Americans from the last two Cups.

They got it. At a price.

Yah, yah, I know. Most popular sport in the world or something.

It’s still kickball for foreigners to me.

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. The best part is all the fans happily pretending that they haven’t read the several dozen recent stories about player fixing, ref bribing and rigged matches held in empty stadiums with no media for Asian gambling syndicates.

    Brazil will win for the simple reason that the refs will ensure it, on account of the fact that if they don’t they will all be killed.

  2. Pajamaboy wouldn’t play it. Too “brutal” and “grueling” (hah!) and he may have to sweat. He reads about footie in The New York Times while sipping a skinny latte mocha surprise. (The surprise is how much the damn thing costs).
