This USA-Costa Rica match is insane, I can't believe they didn't cancel the match. I wish all soccer was in the snow.

I caught the end of it last night, and it's probably the only time I've ever kept the channel on a soccer game. I was shocked when they said it was in Denver. I took a look outside and it was everywhere.

I think this FIFA indictment is 100% sour grapes about the US not getting the world cup in 2022. If FIFA had just given us the cup, instead of shitty Qatar, this investigation never would have went down. But, I think someone at the Justice Dept is a soccer fan, and is pulling a Valcheck about this, so instead of going after Bank of America or something, they are going HAM at FIFA. I'd be more cynical about it, but 1500 people have already died in Qatar, building the stadiums, so the sooner they get the Cup pulled, the better. I do think this has ensured the US will never, ever get the world cup again, at least in the lifetimes of anyone involved in FIFA today.

Kinda bummed del Potro didn't win the gold. I watched his first round win and he was phenomenal in it. Still played a hell of a match today.

It was a great final. Murray is just so tough to finish points against.

Hopefully Del Potro can stay healthy and be back at the top of the game as Federer and Nadal decline

Yeah, everyone had questions about his wrists but looking at the power of his forehand during the games and just his general state of play, I would say "questions answered." I noticed in the early games Murray was using the whole court more effectively and making del Potro move a lot. Solid strategy against a guy that played a 3.5 hour match the day before and something like 15 hours so far that week. He basically did the tennis equivalent of working the body in boxing.
