US Wins Gold Cup

And with that win, the US takes home the ugliest trophy is sports. Look at that thing!

I didn't get to see either the semis or finals while I was gone so I can't say much about how the team looked. They had a miraculous comeback against Honduras on Thursday (winning 2-1 with both US goals coming in the last five minutes) and beat Panama on penalty kicks after a scoreless draw.

Next up for the US: It's back to World Cup qualifying as they play Trinidad & Tobago in Hartford on August 17th. A win there would give the US 15 points with four games to go. That would have been enough points to qualify for either of the last two World Cups. So, we are in good shape.
