Why the US soccer team lost

3-0 is a drubbing. No getting over it. And this from a team that is supposed to be ranked number 5 in the world.

But Team USA's woes are easily remedied: get W to keep his nose out. Whatever the opposite of the Midas touch is, Mr. Heckavajobbrownie's got it. Bush called the US team today before their game vs. the Czech Republic. This was the sporting equivalent of his famous call to Rumsfeld before the Iraq War, "I love yer plan Rummy. Them Iraqi's'll luv it too."

Jinxed. Poor Yanks. Good luck against Italy. My advice? Unplug the phone.
