Are you nervous yet? I'm nervous. All things considered, the United States are on the more desirable end of the bracket and neither Belgium nor Argentina nor the Netherlands nor Costa Rica are among the big tournament favorites.

There are no more words for me to type, namely because I am too nervous to string together a sentence. Comment on the game in our thread below. Go go USA.
