US and A, part deux


While our Horned Frog warriors recover from TCU's first ever College World Series loss, I'd like to remind everyone the United States plays tomorrow in a crucial match against Algeria.

Similar to Slovakia, we're not supposed to have any real trouble pulling this one out, but we almost blew it against the Slovaks, and made it nearly impossible to move forward in the tournament.

There are a number of scenarios involving England, and thier game with Slovakia that could also dictate our future, but they are pretty boring and I'm not going into it.
Bottom line is we need to win - not only for points, but for an emotional boost as we look forward to the next round.

Couple of fun facts:

Established in 1014 AD, Algeria is located in North Africa (who knew?)

A community of anthropologists and other nerds have hypothesized that Algeria is the location and source of the birth of humanity, otherwise known as the home of Adam and Eve, Garden of Eden, serpents, etc.

Ancient Algerians practiced Shamenism, which is a proponent of ingesting psychedelic mushrooms, and have a vast ammount of cave art, and other paintings to prove it.

We tied Slovenia, not Slovakia. Don't confuse your dumpy European countries that we are unable to beat. I'm just nit-picking because I am bored. I'm sorry.

If I am not mistaken, Algeria was also the radical terrorist state featured in the 1986 mega blockbuster "Iron Eagle." It would have been the best movie of the year but unfortunately for “Iron Eagle,” “Delta Force” was also released that year.

Red Barron, are you sure you're talking about Azkaban? Sounds familiar.

No, Azkaban is the jail from the critically acclaimed Harry Potter series. For more, information please consult LT4heisman. I'm pretty sure he has read all the books.
