June 17 18 19 Italy 1-1 USA and Brussels.

The atmosphere in Ktown was just incredible. The entire city center was shut down, and they had a massive fan fest going on. The town was one big party. And there were a lot of americans there. A lot. So after pregaming with hundreds of other americans we made our way to the fritz walter stadion in Kaiserslautern, which is located on a massive hill overlooking the town. The majority of us were located in one big section.

And we were loud. The entire game the US fans were singing, chanting, shouting, and waving flqgs. The passion was incredible. The italian fans just sat on their ass the whole game.

Oh yeah, to the game...

The officiating was absolutely horrible. 7 cards, 3 of them red. And I, as well as every US fan, would like to know the call for why Beasleys goal was called back. Simply horrible. But the US leqrned their lesson from the Czech game. They were clearly united as a team, and their passion showed on the field. And thanks to Ghana beating Czech, we still have a chance of qualifying for the next round. I will take the tie because the US went blow for blow against one of the best and most legendary teams in the world.

Now I am in Brussels. A friend of Mine nqmed Line [lee-nay} that I met when I went to Denmqrk on a scouting trip lives here, and we have managed to keep in touch since then, so I am here visiting her. Very beautiful city. She took me around the city center and showed me some of the massive stone buildings here. I also met some of her friends, and we did a mini bar tour of Brussels. Very european city.

Right now I am in a metro station using the internet. I am about to go get some lunch, then do some sightseeing. Hopefully I will be able to update again soon.

In the replay I saw, that goal situation that got called back was clearly offsides...

I havent seen a replay, but that would probably be the case. Beasley also may have gotten away with a foul on the play too, which is what most of us thought was called.
