The first Half was GREAT! U.S. told Brazil they were there to play with the TWO goals they scored!! At the half Matt and I scrambled to get out the door to church because I was SURE they would loose if I did not go to church...
Here is a report from The Wall Street Journal Daily Blog
Halftime: We made it to halftime. The U.S. have been nearly flawless. Two goals and a tough defense are reasons to celebrate. But they are playing Brazil and just as easily as they scored twice, Brazil can hang three on them. I can only imagine what the mood is in the American locker room. Probably like that feeling you get after asking a girl out on a date: confidence that she said yes, but petrified that you’ll screw it up.
And THAT my friends is the STORY of my life. As Matt and I sat in Sacrament meeting I had a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach. I think Matt could tell and he looked at me and said "They won... I feel it!!" But for some reason I did not believe him! I continued my regular church day teaching my Primary Kids, and talking to my girlfriends about my Obsession that they all laughed about...I am sure they were thinking I am silly for being so worried, but this was a big deal for me!! It was a big deal for the U.S....
Well. Brazil did come back. They scored THREE goals the second half. They killed me. I hate Fabiano. (he scored two of the three) But just like the lesson I had in Relief Society today... Get over it and Move on with Life!! So I must!! And here is another piece of the Wall Street Journal Blog, my personal favorite;
27th Minute: GOAL!!! 2-0 to the U.S. on a Donovan strike! Brazil took a short corner and were sloppy with their passes. Donovan intercepted it and sprinted the field, ditching the ball to Davies, who then set up Donovan on a give-and-go. Donovan cut to his left in the Brazil box and then spanked the ball past Cesar with his left foot.SPANK it Donovan! Spank that ball!!
So Matt decided to have a few friends over, and after everyone showed up, I felt ALOT better and forgot about my sad day... THANKS to those of you who came! It was fun!! We need to play Battle of the Sexes again for SURE! ~
