Go USA!! We've made it to the next round of the World Cup, baby! Landon Donovan (above), made the only goal of the match (or at least the one that the terrible officials decided to count at least), just as time was running out - USA 1, Algeria 0.

Now that I have kids who have played the sport, I'm really enjoying keeping up with the World Cup this year. And, of course, it doesn't hurt that the U.S. has a decent team. The only thing I don't like? Those vuvuzela horns. Seriously, I don't think I could attend a match in person. That sounds drives me ape sh*$ crazy.

Happy Thursday, everyone. The weekend is almost here!

Good morning JMW. Fabulous game wasn't it and yes the World Cup has been a blast to watch. Just maybe someday 'futbol' will become as popular here in the US as it is in the rest of the world. As for those horns..I'd last about 30 seconds. I had to even turn the volume off on the t.v. Enjoy watching this weekend and go USA!!!

I didn't know what that "buzzing" noise was and Mike had to explain it to me! That would drive me crazy.

Congrats to Team USA for making it this far... Whoo Hoo!
