Mail Time: U-S-A, U-S-A!

Behold! A soccer post.

We got this in the mailbox the other day from our good friend Raj ...
From: Raj

Subject: Ummm

How does Charlie Davies not get a shout out on BCI? For a goal in the amazing 3-0 victory over Egypt. Which capped an amazing/lucky string of games to have them in the semifinal of the Confederations Cup against Spain. I'm predicting a 4-1 Spain victory.

Here is our mea culpa. Big DAP to Charlie Davies for not only scoring a sick, first goal in the US's 3-0 win over Egypt, but also for setting up the game-winner against Spain in the Confederations Cup semifinal. Not so sure about that semifinal prediction though, Raj. Oops.

In case you missed Charlie Davies goal and the US's first goal ...

USA 1, Egypt 0

USA 1, Spain 0

Good luck to Davies and the rest of the US Men's National Team as they try to complete their improbable run in the Confederations Cup Sunday against the winner of Brazil / South Africa (in progress).

if my prediction for the Spain victory was correct, i would have a win in the last 5 days in Streak for the cash. FML

Congrats to the US men, i liked the effort, but would love to see some consistency. Also heart attacks are common when opposing goals are stopped by last second slide tackles, please have a defibrillator on hand.

Also BIG UPS to NJ native Tim Howard for single handedly securing the win.

Yes, congrats to Tim Howard as well, old friend of my family.

Raj - I lost my streak betting against the US too. Of course, I love seeing them snap the world #1's 35 game unbeaten street!
