Today is shaping up to be a terrible sports day for me and it is only 1:00. The United States are losing to the Czech Republic 2-0 at halftime of the U.S.'s first game of the World Cup. The Americans really needed a win, or at least a tie to advance out of the "Group of Death".
On top of that, it was just reported that Ben Roethlisberger of the Pittsburgh Steelers was injured in a motorcycle accident and is currently in the hospital. There has been no official statement regarding his injuries or condition. I pray for him and his family that he is able to make a quick recovery.
It should be noted here that one of the things that distract me most from my writing is sports. Maybe I should have stuck to writing today.
