Tragic news about Pepe.

Roland Garros is pissing me off. They scheduled all the semifinals at the same time! So after watching Andy Murray beat Stan Wawrinka, the best that Tennis Channel can offer is the mixed doubles final.

It's to avoid match fixing, obviously.

The audio of USMNT is ahead of the video. We heard Colombia scored before seeing it. Auugh!

Did the US men play pitifully last night or what? The first goal was not terrible but afterwards they played like the Colombians had kicked them repeatedly in the head and gut! No life in the play, no creativity and very poor passing. Especially from Michael Bradley, who gave the ball away all night including one which lead directly to the penalty; if Klinsmann was a better coach he would start Nagbe or Beckerman against Costa Rica instead.

The short time that I watched the game last night, all I saw was Colombia playing keep away from the US side.

MNT was told they'd be playing at Levi's Stadium so they made sure they came in and showed what the Relaxed Fit lifestyle was all about. Plenty of room in the crotch, no sense of urgency.

Quick cuts of Klinsmann enjoying lighthearted moments on the sideline did not help the cause.
