....
Shatto Opines on America vs Belgium in the World Cup:

Again, Americans learn the lessons of Prevent Defense
and Prevent Offense.
Teams will continue using them anyway.

Only once did I see an American take the ball away from an
opponent.
Usually the defense were as effective as dribbling pylons
never blocking, or hindering, the Belgium passes.

The Americans had no sense of urgency until the overtime.

Even bad shooting is effective if you shoot enough.
The Belgians shot enough.

The sportsmanship was wonderful.
The fans rooted mightily to encourage the Americans
on the rare times they mounted a decent attack.

A good team can change the dynamic on the field, that's what happened yesterday in spades. We couldn't possess the ball through the mid-field. Makes it tough to put numbers forward if you don't own the mid-field. Other than the "dump and run" to Dempsy or Yedin putting on a show with an overlap run a couple times we didn't have enough for the Belgians.

ESPN
I've heard that ESPN has their highest ever ratings, by showing Futbol. The World Cup specifically.
So, I'm in a quandary; why is the ESPN picture in fuzzy analog when Univision shows the same feed
in glorious Hi-Def?

Likely your provider has Univision in high definition, and ESPN in standard definition. Look around however some providers will offer the same channel in standard and high definition on unique numbered channels.

Which TV content provider do you use? On my little $65 mid-tier package I get ESPN in HD.

Alternatively you could polish up on your Spanish and watch Univision. Smile

7 to 1
Germany, destroying Brazil, showed Team America how far they have to go.

Well Brazil quit after the first Germany goal. That's not a score indicative from Brazil even without Neymar.

US needs to execute better in the mid field. Dump and run to Dempsy isn't a strategy that will get you into the finals of the world cup.
