    Just wanted to pop in and say congrats to the US Men's National Soccer Team for it's biggest win in our nation's history.

    USA 3 - 2 Portugal

    Portugal is ranked 5th in the world and is supposed to make it to the later rounds of the World Cup. The US played a great match and it's a very exciting day for soccer fans around the country!

    GO USA!!!!

    MASSIVE BUMP!!

    Because...

    we won against Mexico, 2-0!!!! WOO HOOOOO!!!

    This means we play Germany next in the "Elite Eight", then the winner of Spain and what will probably be Italy for the "Final Four".

    We are so so close to finally getting respect as a soccer nation!!!

    USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA!

    Woohooooooooo!

    It might help the cause if we started calling it "football" like the rest of the world does...

    Would love to be one of those announcer guys

    It'd be too difficult. It would confuse NFL fans.

    Honestly, the US was a football country before a "soccer" country, so they can make the "we were here first" claim.

    Thusly...SOCCER. =P

    moogle has a point. I propose altering the name football to futbol to clarify.

    Do not be too proud of this athletic prowess you've invested emotion upon. The American's ability to conquer a European sport is insignificant next to the power of a miracle.

    you can't really use a "we were here first" line as the rest of the world was calling it football long before american football was founded.

    Perhaps a "you should catch up" would be better.

    Hats off to the Team USA performance in this competition - better than ever before. Lets hope they can push it to the next stage.
