The Yanks Are Coming

Today is the friendly between the US and Handball FC. The Germans are still smarting from a 4-1 whooping put on them by the Azzuri (Italy) and there is tons of public pressure on Germany to perform well today for two reasons:

1) Because they are supposed to be an international power, and losing 4-1 to anyone is unacceptable

2) We're Americans, and losing to us is on the soccer field without the aide of Sly or Pele is even more unacceptable

We're not taking a full-strength side over there, and they aren't showing us a full-strength side themselves. I'm saturated by anticipation of the 2:30pm kickoff, and I hope all you footy freaks out there are going to be watching.

Prediction: 2-1 Stars and Stripes, and Sam's Army sings into the night...
