Just watched the U.S. Men's Soccer team beat Norway five to nothing! (Sorry, Rarity and Scholiast. Really.)
Taylor Twellman scored a hat trick! He made three goals of the five! And he's cute to boot! (sorry about all the !'s. I'm excited. Sue me.)
That's five goals in three games for Twellman, who now looks like he has a shot to make the U.S. team going to Berlin in June for the World Cup. (note to self: go to that someday.)
The World Cup starts June 9. The first U.S. game will be June 12 against the Czech Republic. Then they play Italy and Ghana.
For the first time ever, all 64 games will be shown in high definition on ESPN or ESPN 2.

No offence taken ;) I love football (Rarity does NOT), but you deserved this win.
- I've just got to mention, in passing, that our first team is occupied elsewhere..
You really should go see it, though, it's good fun! I so hoped the US would beat Germany last World Cup, but alas... (Like someone once said - football is a game with 22 players and one ball, and then Germany wins...)

Enjoy your recent victory - but prepare to be beaten in all kinds of whinter sports by tiny little Norway, once the olympics get started...
(Really: I'm not the least bit interested in sports - so this is just a lame attempt to sound like "one of the guys")

I loved soccer ever been before. This time, I will be a fan of this handsome Taylor Twellman. And your right, he is so cute. I hope I could be there someday at Berlin for the World Cup. Keep posting !
