I know people don't give a shit about soccer but this is a cool story. So Bear with me...
The U.S started a tourney of 8 champion international teams called the confederations cup. In the first two games, The U.S were destroyed 3-1 and 3-0 by Italy and Brazil respectably. Yesterday, in the final game of group play, They had to beat Egypt by at least 3 goals and needed Brazil to beat Italy by 3 goals,If they hoped to advance to the knockout stage. That's exactly what happened!!
They beat Egypt 3-0 and Brazil beat Italy 3-0. So yea, Italy and Egypt were eliminated and the U.S advance to play Spain(A team that is on a record unbeaten streak)on Wednesday for a chance to play in the final. I think Its a cool story because The U.S are ridiculously out matched in talent compared to these teams(a single player probably makes more than the whole U.S team)and now have a chance to win a major tourney.
Italy on the other hand,having the best players in the world,millions more to spend then the U.S, were eliminated. Money can't buy class, (hear that Yankee fans) You need heart. The U.S showed they had Heart. Yea... I know its fucking soccer but we can actually learn something from this. Talent gets you there but heart gets you through. GO U.S!!!!!!!!!!!
