A number of emailers, not all necessarily friendly, have asked if I intend to post today after the U.S.-Ghana game. In fact, I don’t intend to comment, no matter what the outcome. To achieve this goal, I intend to avoid listening to or reading anything about the game from the U.S. media.

I’m actually having a little bit of an existential crisis with this US-Ghana match – I really appreciate the Ghana team and two of my most fantastic colleagues are Ghanaian. I’ll have to muster every little ounce of fleeting nationalistic sentiment I posses to cheer for team USA.
I suggested he watch the game on ESPN. That experience will drive even the most die-hard American fans into Ghana’s camp.
