USA takes on England and I Make Wild, Historic Assertions

A rare Saturday post.

In 1781, English General Cornwallis surrendered to the underdog United States’ Commander, General George Washington.

In 1950, the massively underdog U.S. Soccer team upends the heavily favorited English side.

What will happen in 2010?

And do those jerseys look familiar?

My prediction: Look out for Clint Dempsey.

May the best team named the United States of America win.


  1. So we beat the Brits in 1871? Nice to know we won the Civil War of Gentlemanly Valor. Also: we should start a national cricket team.
