Through the Wringer

That was a grueling game to watch:

  • Filled with hope by Ghana’s victory over the Czechs.
  • Dejected as Italy goes up 1-0. No one can sit on a lead like the Azzurri.
  • Back in the game with Italy’s own goal.
  • Hopeful after De Rossi’s Red Card gives US a man advantage.
  • Anxious as Mastroeni’s Red Card evens the sides up.
  • Dejected when Pope’s Red Card gives Italy the man advantage.
  • Excited as time runs out.

And the US is still in the mix. We have to beat Ghana on Thursday and we need a good result from Italy vs. the Czech Republic. But we’re still in the game.
