We wuz Robbed
Dan Drezner does a nice job of putting an IR spin on the Slovenia-US game and FIFA's limits as an international organization. Given that baseball seemed ok, at the end of the day with the recent imperfect game due to a bad call, is this hypocrisy by Americans? Perhaps not since not winning the game in the World Cup might have more of an impact on the outcome of the competition than a pitcher not getting credit for 27 outs after 27 batters. The good news is that it sets up a very exciting week for the World Cup with much more in the balance.
