I thought Ghana was really going to get screwed there for a minute. They had a penalty shot, maybe 65 minutes or so in; they're up one nothing and a guy just got thrown out. Dude drills, and I mean drills, it off the post. I watched it on slo mo (TiVoed it) and could've sworn it hit the middle of the back of the net and flew out. When they showed a replay about a minute or so later, it was off the right post. Didn't matter, since they scored about 10 minutes later and to close the Czechs out. I got a feeling, regardless of what the U.S. does today against Italy (about to watch it on TiVo), even a draw's probably out of the question.
