At the Tour today there was justice. Mattias Kessler, who deserved to win yesterday, found the strength to attack the peloton once again and this time stayed away. His victory will hopefully take a touch of the sting out of Germany’s woes over their valient loss to Italy. The Italians were superior in a brilliant match, one for the ages. Anyone who thinks “soccer is boring” needs to find a reply of today’s overtime. Sitting next to a German fan down at my local, he could only shake his head at the winning goal. “That was absolutely beautiful,” was all he said.
It may not feel like it here in the USA, but you should believe those slogans that state “one game changes everything.”
Happy Birthday, America!
