How Big Was That WIN?

I think that's an easy question to answer, but the answer exists on so many levels.

  1. Big Enough that I will be co-hosting an hour of soccer talk on KJR-AM (that's 950) with Dick Fain. This will include World Cup talk, some listener calls and Taylor Graham. Eight PM Tonight!
  2. Logically it wasn't as big as the victory of Spain in the Confederations Cup
  3. Emotionally it was bigger

What are your thoughts on the victory? Anyone want to name their first born Landon? Is this the start of something bigger?


Again - the United States won a Group Stage in a World Cup for only the second time (1930, you remember that right?). The USA finished higher than England. Landon Donovan has two goals in the Cup.
