Ghana gana (pun totally intended)

So let me get this straight.  Czech Republic trounces Team USA 3-0, then Ghana (making its World Cup debut) not only beats the Czechs 2-0, but utterly dominates them.  Truth be told, the Ghanians (is that correct?) should have won 5-0 if the Czech goalie hadn't played the game of his life. 

So what can we expect from the Ghana-USA game?  I would have said a massacre but after watching Team USA somewhat reconcile their rep against the Italians, I'll be a bit more optimistic. 

How about Team USA showing some backbone against the Azurri?  That ref made some horrendous calls, especially the ejections of Mastroeni and Pope.  I haven't seen officiating that bad since the Germany-Mexico game in '86 which cost Mexico a pass to the semis.  All in all, I'm proud of my adoptive country, and how they hung in there against a tough, tough Italian team.
