The porn 'stache 

Apparently Adam Morrison plays for the South Korean soccer team. Who knew?

I'm not entirely sure why Ahn Jung-Hwan came in off the bench instead of starting, but he hasn't lost his magic. It's also nice to see South Korea playing a slightly more disciplined defense than they did under Guus Hiddink, when they'd recklessly triple- and quadruple-team the ball at every opportunity.

In other news, the USA got beaten soundly by the Czech Republic. Now for whatever reason, everybody seems to think that advancing out of group play after losing the first game is impossible. It's not. A 2-1 record in group play is almost always good enough for second place in the pool -- the only way it's not is in the rare case that the pool ends up 2-1, 2-1, 2-1, 0-3. Granted, Italy is a doozy and Ghana is no slouch either, but USA fans, coaches and detractors alike seem to be overreacting to the situation.
