The U.S. Soccer team earned a point towards World Cup qualification by:
(1) playing Mexico to a 0-0 tie; and
(2) having one shot on goal in the entire match (Mexico had 19).

I know its the "beautiful game" but . . . I'm just not a fan.

I cant stand watching the game in person or on TV, but it sure was fun to play. Mostly because I was a goon. Nothing like being physically bigger than everyone else on the field and just legally beat someone up.

I'm baffled that the Denver game was played. A World Cup qualifier played in a blizzard? Why would Costa Rica's coaches agree to continue playing
that game?

Well, it is the world's hardest team sport. And it's anti-American. But to quote Jimmy Dugan: "If it was easy, everyone would do it".
