The US has beaten Algeria, 1-0, and now emerges as the winners of Group C with two draws and one win. Per an earlier conversation, that's just one draw ahead of the Korea Republic, which eked out an advancement into the knockout round with one win, one draw, and one loss.

I did not watch the game — yet! — because I was afraid after South Korea's draw against Nigeria that my jinx was still in play, so I have no comment. Except that the we wuz robbed against Slovenia. Robbed, I say!

Oh, and I approve, sorta, of iheartblueball's soccer-themed gravatar. It's an improvement over the NSFW original, which occasionally barred me from perusing The Marmot's Hole while in public. iheartblack-and-whiteballs.
