Yeah. . .I didn't know that Gus Johnson spoke Spanish, either.  (Actually, that was Andres Cantor. . .who, as you can tell, is awesome even if you can't understand a word he's saying.)

I ordinarily wouldn't do this kind of thing, but this whole World Cup thing is getting to be sort of a big deal, particularly in light of the dramatics that the U.S. had to go through to reach this stage of the tournament.  So, having advanced through Group Play in South Africa, the U.S. finds themselves in a position similar to most other sports tournaments. . .win and keep playing, lose and go home.  The winner of this match moves on to the quarterfinals, where they'll take on the winner of this morning's early game, Uruguay vs. South Korea, for the right to advance to the Final Four.  The U.S. is the highest-rated team in their quarter of the bracket, but this World Cup has proven that that sort of thing really doesn't mean much. . .if you don't believe me, you can ask the French or the Italians.

Uruguay and South Korea are set to kick off in about five minutes, and you can see the game on ESPN.  The United States/Ghana game is set to start at 1:30 PM Central Time, and can be seen on ABC.  If you want to discuss it here, this is the place!
