USA v Ghana

Stomach falling, heart wrenching disappointment. Sigh. Why do football teams break my heart? I’m not usually the kind of person who buys into national identify. It’s hard to being from a neighborhood in Dallas where quinceanera shops out number grocery stores. I hate empty jingoism and mindless patriotism. But, I really wanted the USMNT to go through. I’m happy for Ghana. It’s an honor for them. But, my heart still hurts.
