2014 FIFA World Cup: US scores late winner, beats Ghana 2-1

USA vs Ghana World Cup 2014

A little known sub, possibly the least likely man to score for the US, may have changed the team's fortunes this World Cup.

John Brooks was thrust into the backline after Matt Besler went down with a hamstring injury and his 86th-minute goal gave the US a decisive 2-1 lead that it wouldn't give up. Off a Graham Zusi corner, Brooks rose up and pounded the ball into the ground and it one-hopped into the net past Ghana's keeper.

"We have a great spirit. The US team always has a great spirit and fights until the last second. It was a little bit of a shock that Jozy got injured. It was a grind, but a wonderful win at the end of the day," Klinsmann said following the stunning victory.

Brooks' goal came just four minutes after Ghana had tied it up, and it appeared that this Group G thriller was headed for a draw. But despite relentless pressure from Ghana's wingers, the US managed to fend off a ceaseless attack and work the ball up for the game-changing (hell, World Cup changing, if you're America) corner.

The US avenged its 2006 and 2010 losses to Ghana on Monday evening with a heart-pounding victory that may have shifted Group G's fortunes as well, especially after Germany's thrashing of Portugal earlier on Monday.

Clint Dempsey got the US on the board a mere :32 seconds into Monday's match, but for the next seventy-odd minutes, it was all Ghana. Tim Howard was outstanding, as was center back Geoff Cameron. The defense, which came into the World Cup with so many doubts, stood stall even as exhaustion and injuries took their toll.

Tireless midfielders Kyle Beckerman and Jermaine Jones each showed exemplary hustle, trekking back often to help boost the US's inexperienced backline. Both played a physicial style that was absolutely necessary against Ghana, which was eager to go cleat-up a bit too often.

The lasting image from this game will be Brooks' header, but Dempsey stayed in even after taking a foot to the face. With the win, he'll take a possible broken nose.

Besler left the game at halftime, but the bigger injury and cause for concern moving forward has to be Jozy Altidore, who pulled his hamstring chasing down a pass from Michael Bradley. For now, injury concerns aren't on the minds of the US team, though, as it can revel in a wonderful, tone-setting victory.

Donald Sterling remains a total scumbag, and the NBA needs to deal with it

Donald Sterling is a total scumbag. He has a history of particularly grotesque and federally prosecuted racism and a list of sexual harassment accusers. He's a grandstanding idiot without a modicum of self-awareness. He's the type of dumbass who would hold a Black History Month celebration in March, and the type of racist moron who would "celebrate Black History" by giving 1,000 game tickets to poor kids, because the brainless hockey puck equates Black people with poor people, because he is a complete cretin.

NBA playoffs in progress, can the Heat threepeat?

The NBA first round of the playoffs for the 2013-2014 season is ongoing and the match ups are quite tight in both the Eastern and Western Conference turfs except for the Miami Heat which swept the Charlotte Bobcats 4-0.

The second seed in the East, Heat can at least rest and reenergize for a week while waiting for its second round opponent which is either the third seed Toronto Raptors or the sixth seed Brooklyn Nets which are now tied 2-2 in their first round series.

A bad season for the ailing Texans

After the Houston Texans eked out a 2-0 start, it was all disaster for the once amazing and promising football team. It suffered its worst franchise record of 14 straight losses and ended up fourth in the AFC South in a season-ending 2-14 win-loss card.

So frustrating was how the team performed that in week 14 and with a loss to the cellar dweller Jacksonville Jaguars, Texans team owner Bob Mcnair handed Head coach Gary Kubiak his pink slip. Mcnair named Defensive coach Wade Philipps as interim coach and later hired former Penn State head coach Bill O' Brien as the team's third head coach.

In the season opener, the Texans won against the San Diego Chargers, 31-28 in a come-from-behind fashion. Down 3 touchdowns (21-points) in the third quarter, the Texans sparked a 24-0 run in the closing minutes of the third quarter and the rest of the fourth quarter to finally win one against the Chargers.

Can Manny Pacquiao bounce back from that devastating knock out loss to Marquez?

Marquez delivers the KO punch of the decade......

Saturday night was not as cold as it seems when Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao was devastatingly knocked out cold by Juan Manuel Marquez with a perfectly executed crisp right straight at exactly 2:59th minute of the sixth round.

Pacquiao started chasing Marquez and landed good shots in rounds one and two until Marquez suddenly surprised Pacman in the third round with an overhand right power shot that knocked down the pound-for-pound king for the first time in the bout and in the previous 36 rounds that they had squared off so far.
