US Soccer Pulls Off 91st Minute Miracle

"The Miracle at 91": At least, that's what I'd like to call it. One of the most joyous moments in the history of US sports -- certainly national-team sports -- and, at the same time, one of its most improbable.

If everything that happened leading up to this -- the fluky goal to tie England, the robbery that denied 3 points vs. Slovenia -- allowed for this most extreme of sports miracles, I am thrilled that they happened, because they made the moment all the more sweet.

It is one of the most stunning sports results of all time. Not an upset.

Just so improbable as to feel like one of the great moments in the country's sports history.
