Czech it out!

I'm sorry about that title. There was nothing I could do about it.

An awesome day for mullet watch - after the highs of Japan we had our first be-mulleted goal scorer - and he got two! And they were both blinding! And the second had a mullet assist to go with it!

The US looked very poor - especially going forward, although Eddie Johnson looked to have something about him. The Czechs played brilliantly, but the hamstring injury to Koller could significantly weaken their chances later in the tournament. They certainly rank right up there with the teams I'm looking forward to seeing again, and, even without Koller, they could go a long long way if they keep playing to that level.
