Photographer's Note

Please pardon my self indulgence with this one.

I hadn’t planned on posting a new picture just yet, but as a happy American right now, I just couldn’t let the moment pass by after todays qualification into the ‘Sweet 16’ of the World Cup. We did it the hard way, there was some uneasiness as the matches played out…but with some help from a team that broke our hearts earlier in the week on a last second goal, we managed to make it through, despite the loss. Thanks Portugal. :)

As a team/country that’s not regarded as one of the perennial football powerhouses, it’s kind of a big deal here in the U.S. to make it this far...especially coming out of the “Group of Death.”

In reality, our chances are minimal, but it’s still quite an accomplishment for the boys in red, white and blue…and I wish them the best as our nation continues to progress in this sport. Best of luck to all teams…except of course now, the Belgian’s. haha

The WS picture will provide you with more context to this main post.

Thanks for stopping by.
