Yay for the Three Lions and the Stars and Stripes!!

Unless you happen to live under a rock, you already know that England AND the US are going on to the next round at the World Cup!!  YAY!!!  I was up early for swimming (yes, I swim) and so I only caught the last hour or so of the England game.  Meaning, I missed our goal :(  So sad.

I am a huge England supporter, but when it comes to Landon Donovan of the US team, it gets a little personal.  My brother used to play club footie (soccer to you yanks!) with Landon when we were younger (between 10 and 15, or so, it has been a long time so I can't remember the exact dates) for about 5 years.  While they would play at tournaments and stuff, Landon's twin sister (Tristan) and I would read books together and play.  I hated getting dragged to those games and it seems like so long ago when I sang karaoke down in San Diego with them all at a hotel during one of their stay-over tournaments.  *sigh*  Who knew that eventually he would make it this far...and I wonder if my brother could have made it if he had kept his grades up and stayed in club soccer.  Oh well.

Anyway, I am super happy that it was Landon that scored since any other person would have just made me angry that the US got through too....I guess it is a question of loyalty and pride when it comes down to it.

Sorry if you don't like it, but it is all about ENGLAND!!!
