Actually, it's just a mild infection, but still . . .
I just got back from a little lunchtime diversion* of watching the first half of the U.S. team's first match. They were losing to the Czech Republic 2-0 at halftime, when I left to get back to work.
*Law firm sanctioned, of course.
Update: The U.S. lost 3-0. But don't despair just yet -- maybe we can still beat Italy on Saturday.
Read Dave Eggers on the True Story of American Soccer, hopefully it'll make you feel better.
