England's win over Slovenia just minutes earlier gave them 1st place with 5 points and Slovenia second with 4 which put USA out of contention with just 3 points. The most AMAZING part is this was in stoppage time. Literally the very last moment left for a score. I believe the referee had the whistle in his mouth and had just inhaled to blow the official 3 alerts signaling the match over. It was like something out of Hollywood... But not. USA wins Group C and advances to second round. Sure, Donovan will get the credit, but he couldn't have done it without my heart racing, head sweating, edge of my seat determination and will to win driving the team to victory!
Donovan & Buddle Celebrate
Not only the longest match in Wimbledon, but in Tennis history concluded today after 11 hours & 5 minutes. John Isner defeats Nicolas Mahot 6-4, 3-6, 6-7 (7), 7-6 (3), 70-68. How is this possible you ask? I have no idea. I don't follow Tennis. But from what I've gathered, Wimbledon does not have a tie break, you have to win by 2. Kind of like that ridiculously long hoops game of 1 on 1 you played with your best friend in high school you thought would never end where you both were so tired you could barely stand but neither would accept defeat. Just like that. You'll probably never see anything like this again... Ever.
