Now that the U.S. is out of the World Cup and I've had some time to watch a few games and decide which team I like the most, I have finally decided on a team to support, however short-lived that may be.
I realize that they defeated the U.S. because of what seemed to be a rather unfair foul call, but after watching the Ghanians play a couple of times I feel they have the spirit I am looking for in a team. They are an underdog, although they are well known in the African circuit. But these boys played their hearts out against the Czech Republic and again against the U.S. And it helps that Leanne's stories of life in Accra have endeared me to the Ghanian people.
Still, they are playing Brazil in their next match, which most betters would say means a certain loss for Ghana. Lose or not, the Ghanian team has my support. Here's hoping for a good show on Tuesday.
In the meantime, I'm sure I'll enjoy Germany vs. Sweden tomorrow.
