    If getting out pool play was a "miracle," then what are you going to say if the US wins any of its next games?

    Just wonderin'

    This isn't a historic win, folks. It's a win that gets the U.S. into the Sweet 16.

    The U.S. barely beat a team it had no business losing to.

    In the 91st minute...on a fluke goal...after having a goal disallowed. Pretty big, I think.

    Correct. No one questions - or should question - this.

    But it was a little too close, and it's still a worthy story. It's still the World Cup, and it's not like the U.S.'s birthright to get through to the knockout stage. Playing this up doesn't mean there can't be more should the Americans continue to advance.

    Agreed, Sam. It's a big moment and the biggest story of the day in the country.

    But I've already been seeing a lot of my sports journalist friends on facebook and twitter describe is as a 'epic and historic' win and arguably the greatest soccer game EVER!!!

    The U.S advances to the second round for the second time outside of its home soil. It's fun and easy to be cynical, but this is a big deal.

    I say would have been a much bigger story if they hadn't advanced.

    It's the biggest story until Strasburg takes the mound in about 3 hours...
