Don't feel that you have to change your game-watching or live-commenting plans if you already have any, but since there seems to be significant soccer interest among our Tennessee regulars, it seems prudent to offer a chance to converse about the game with each other.

Since I'm not a soccer guy, I'll let you all break down the matchup in the comments if you wish.  All I know is that it's AMERICA vs. Ghana.  The one thing I do know, however, is that the USA team has remarkable stamina.  Whatever conditioning program they're on is really working for them; their pattern of late surges and goals started well before the group events.  Should they be tied or even fall behind early on, don't count them out.

I'll be watching the game at Soccer Taco in Knoxville, thanks to some friends who are holding a spot for me.  If you happen to be in the area, feel free to say 'hi' to the guy in the Wyoming t-shirt.
