I'm told there's a soccer game of great import involving your United States of America Americans today at 11 a.m. CDT. If the United States beats Germany today, they advance to the next round. If they tie, they also advance. If they lose, the United States could still advance, depending on other factors. Each possible outcome is expressed in graphic form here, should you wish to get into further details.
As many of you will be watching the game (or "match," as it were), feel free to use this open thread to share your observations, reactions, and proposed Uruguayan dental plans in the Comments below.
