06/21 Quickie: World Cup, US Open, More

If you're like me -- or like the US Soccer roster -- you're probably still a little bitter about Friday's screw-job at the World Cup.

"Well, it could have been a loss" doesn't really help. However, in today's SN column, I point out a few situations from this weekend that really should make you feel better:

*Tiger at the US Open.
*Dustin Johnson -- oy! -- at the Open.
*European soccer, more generally. (Say: Italy's humiliation)
*Ivory Coast
*Baseball fans now staring up at the Yankees in the AL East

I do feel a little better, with 48 hours to get ready for US-Algeria. A win there fixes a lot. (A loss? Don't even want to think about that yet.)

Meanwhile, it's a big week:

*NBA Draft (the "Wall Draft" for we Wiz fans)
*More World Cup (get up for Wednesday!)
*The iPhone 4 (did you pre-order?)
*Trying to pull my fantasy baseball team out of its tailspin.

Complete SN column here. More later.
