I didn't really know what was happening, but yes, it was a great sporting event. Regretting the USA isn't in this one.
Don't worry, we're approaching the point by which the USA is out anyways. Elimination rounds. Watching US soccer can be painful. I tried watching the MLS once and it was just bad compared to the skill of the premier league. I sometimes wonder how good the US would be if Soccer was far and away our #1 sport like it is elsewhere.
Still, I don't really mind our mediocrity that much if it means we get to watch awesome sports like Real Football (tm), basketball, and hockey.
Watching soccer is painful - good, bad, indifferent. WORSE when a two sport athlete breaks her ankle before basketball season starts.
