Dashed Hopes

A game of two halves;
90 minutes and then some.
Then a cheat,
Penalty--
A miss.
DAMN.
The an arbitrary
but necessary competition.
A brave loser
A shocking miss and
The crushed dreams
And dashed hopes
Of a continent.

Uruguay players start celebrating while Asamoah Gyan, of Ghana, shows his devastation at missing a late penalty kick in extra time of the quarter-final at the Soccer City stadium.

(Clearly the football really hurt me, let's not talk about it...)

I can't even blog about the game. You've said everything I wanted to say. So, from today, when anyone asks how I felt, I'll send them here.
