Huge game coming up for Captain Bocanegra, Tim Howard and the Red, White and Blue.

Thank you Sasha Vujacic for knocking down those clutch FTs last night.  This morning though he is on the other team - as his Slovenia is taking on the Red, White and Blue in Johannesburg.  Slovenia is at the top of our group after getting a late goal (a gift really) against an undermanned Algeria team playing with 10 dudes.  Speaking of gifts, that's how we got a tie in our hyped match against England.

While the tie with England was kind of a bonus, since we were huge underdogs, we can really help our chances to advance if we can get out win victory against Slovenians.  This is a huge game for both teams. Apparently Slovenians have already been doing some trash talking predicting victory. Tim Howard is nursing a rib injury, but he should ready to go.

The match will get started around 7 am PST/10 am EST on ESPN. Here is coverage from SBN and ESPN. Let's hope the US team led by Captain Bocanegra (a Bruin) can bring home a victory. GO USA!

GO BRUINS.
