    Default We goin' to South Africa!!!!!!!!!



    With a win in Honduras tonight, the US men's national team punched their ticket to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

    We actually got quite lucky tonight as Honduras had about a million chances to score but just couldn't seal the deal (remind you of anyone??? ) Anyway, I'm ecstatic the guys got the win and they played hard even if not well through the entire game.

    w00t!!

    The challenge ahead of us is never as great as the power behind us.

    Yeah - I actually watched some of it courtesy of the internet....unbelievable that wouldn't be broadcast here....

    Good for them - I believe Honduras was something like 8-0 at home during the qualifying rounds - which is damn impressive. Talk about playing in a hostile environment... I don't think folks today appreciate how amazing it is that US soccer teams now routinely qualify for the World Cup. There was a time (ie..when I was growing up) where the idea of us every fielding a competitive team on the world stage was laughable.

    Love that they won - I heard it came down to a late miss on a Honduras penalty kick.
