Brazil 3, USA 2

Kristian Lin
For a while there, we had the mighty Brazilians on the ropes. It was fun while it lasted, wasn’t it? Just like the last time, the U.S. gave up three goals in losing to Brazil. Unlike the last time, we emerged with some gl...


Must Have Been The Uniforms

Jeff Prince

Jimmy Fowler
