I don't care much for the World Cup, but I was willing Ghana to win that one.

That referee is a retard. I mean, how can you give someone three yellow cards??
What would they have done if he (or his team) had scored after the second yellow card?

Ghana were never going to win, but now they might go out to the winners. And enjoy themselves whilst doing it.
Now, I'd think that would be heartbreaking. To come up against the team that everybody expects to win, and know that everyone expects you to get ground into the dust.

And Sturg, Pujols just got back... cut him some slack. He hit a fairly long drive in his first at-bat, and he made contact every time. But yes, this was quite possibly the best pitching the Cards have seen in quite some time... though Carpenter's 13 K game was pretty nice as well.

EDIT: Just found this:

Now that's a compliment.

Gamble with Gaea, and she eats your dice.

No need to to cut him any slack today...

But if you never thought you'd get that far, it's an honour to play against the premier team. It means you were good enough to catch their attention. It doesn't matter if you lose.

Australia didn't expect to win against Brazil, and we didn't. As the coach said, all he wanted from our team was a good showing. It didn't stop everyone from watching the match (though the 2am tv slot might have) and cheering for our team.

There are few positions more favorable than being an extreme underdog going into a competition. If you lose, no one is upset, and you still get a great opportunity. Winning as a major underdog is, of course, the best feeling one can get in any competition. Unfotunately, most (but not all) underdogs are underdogs with good reason.

What really sucks is being the red hot favourite who gets a nasty suprise.

This is true. I can't help but feel bad for them, even when rooting for the other team. Still, I'm happy with the outcome.
