Welcome to the 2010 FIFA World Cup (TM) and the only match that matters right now: England vs. USA. Obviously, I'm liveblogging this:

Anthems: I love the English national anthem because it's the same melody as "My Country, 'Tis Of Thee." I wonder if they played our anthem too fast on purpose, so our fans couldn't sing along (very well).

4th Minute: Goal, England. Gerrard. Are you serious?

35th Minute: The US looks pretty good, considering. However, England looks like they can score from anywhere.

40th Minute: GOAL! Clint Dempsey! Weak goal, soft shot. 1-1.

Half-Time: 1-1. Advantage: USA.

49th Minute: Wayne Rooney barely misses a pass for a goal, still 1-1.

52nd Minute: Heskey ROBBED by USA goalkeeper Tim Howard, still 1-1.

65th Minute: Jozy Altidore hits the post! Still 1-1.

88th Minute: Still tied, US barely surviving. England can really score.

94th Minute: After 4 minutes of stoppage time, the game finishes 1-1.
