What a difference

What a difference? As reported previously, I spent some time watching the World Cup games this weekend. The passion of the player for the most part was evident. This is PRIME Time. There is no bigger stage for soccer (or football as the rest of the world refers to it).
 
Caught the NE Revolution to close out the Sunday games and while they started slow (again). They managed to come out and play well during the second half, eventually striking twice in extra time to secure a tie on the road.
 
Contrast this to the US National team today. Watching via the tape, (yes, I do work for a living), I was disappointed with their performance. No passion. No connections. Except for a few moments here and there, thoroughly out played.
 
How long were they preparing for this?
one of three important group games?
 
They certainly did not look ready.
 
Let's hope between now and Saturday when someone takes the field against Italy that the team that shows up wearing the US uniform shows some interest in playing the game.
