World Cup: USA vs. Algeria - Open Thread

Quite possibly the most hated man in America. (Photo by David Cannon/Getty Images)

We now interrupt your regular stream of Colts content to bring you something else........soccer. What was that? This is a Colts site and you didn't come here for or care one bit about soccer? C'mon. This is the dead time between OTA's and training camp, and the World Cup only comes on once every 4 years. Relax a little bit. Enjoy some other sports for once.

In what amounts basically to a KO game, the US will take on Algeria for their final match of the group stage at 10:00 AM ET today. Win, and the US is through to the round of 16. Lose, and the US is eliminated. Tie Algeria, and things get complicated. Want to see how complicated? Here's a chart showing all of the scenarios for how the US can advance/win the group:

Complicated, huh?

Anyway, this will be your open thread for the US-Algeria game, the concurrent England-Slovenia game for our English friends (BTW, don't click on this link English friends. I warned you.), and it will also be our general open thread after the game, so don't go anywhere else after the game.

By request, after the jump, I've included a couple photos to show where my allegiance lies.
