Holy Shit! US Men's Soccer Team Beats Spain!

Totally unrelated to energy, but hardly anything - except maybe a cockroach - will have heard of this in the US (link).
It is finished. Spain's 35-match unbeaten streak ends on a frigid night in Bloemfontein, where the United States men's national team has engineered an improbable 2-0 upset of the reigning European champions.

Goals from Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey have given the United States its most improbable upset since tipping England in the 1950 World Cup.
Oddsmaker William Hill listed the U.S. as a 12-to-1 longshot to snap Spain's record run!

  1. Besides putting a female player in the post, it's no big a deal, the win. It's the end of the season in spain after a big one. Barcelona won the champions league and the spanish championship was exciting till the end.

    Let's see in the world cup if the states are up to it (doubt it, sorry)

  2. Hey - how often does the men's team win against a big opponent? That comes about as often as Haley’s Comet. We’ll be hooked up to machines in the old folks' home before this happens again.
