World Cup Update (The “What Group of Death?” Edition)

Kristian Lin
Following its 1-0 loss to Germany, USA was still able to progress from one of the toughest groups at the World Cup. That’s more than England, Italy, or Spain can say right now. Let’s recap all the talking points. I’m stay...

My Conveniently Sized World Cup Preview

Kristian Lin
I could easily blog 1,500 words on all 32 of the teams in the World Cup, but since I don’t want to drive my editors insane by forcing them to read all that verbiage, I’m confining my preview of the whole tournament to 1,500...
