Well, America, I hope yesterday's loss by your USMNT to a better, more experienced Belgium team doesn't mean you'll stop paying attention to the World Cup, or to soccer generally. That's one feisty, determined team you have, and the future is bright. As for me, with England out, and Canada never in [sigh], I'm rooting for Germany and its impressively multicultural (and hugely talented) Mannschaft.
