the Frenzy

A lot of my past three weeks have been filled with non-stop shoots, jobs and assignments. It's great to be so busy, even if I had to sacrifice watching the NBA Finals and thus far, most of the World Cup. Watching Team USA rally to tie Slovenia was a great moment of my week, although USA's third goal should have counted IMHO. It's back to the grind for now. I'm excited to keep busy and be shooting. Hopefully I can watch USA's next game but that all depends on my schedule. Go Team USA. Let's get'r done.

Best overheard World Cup comment of the day so far: "It's hard for USA to win a game when the referee is Slovenia's 12th player."

Second-half sub Maurice Edu appeared to put the U.S. ahead in the 86th minute, poking in a close-range shot after Jozy Altidore headed Landon Donovan's free kick to him. But the goal was disallowed by referee Koman Couilibaly of Mali, apparently for a foul before Edu got the ball.

"I'm a little gutted to be honest," Donovan said. "I don't know how they stole that last goal from us. I'm not sure what the call was. He [the referee] wouldn't tell us what the call was."
