Not so sure everyone wa shating. I think many myself included thought Italy had /has the better team which I still believe they do as FRiendlies are very hard to use as any indicator. I was rooting for USA but thought Italy would win it if they went all out to win.

I'm not the most enthusiastic America fan, but I did shave myself a mullet so I feel like I'm qualified enough to say this..  Any american fan betting against america today only did so because we know we suck, and when I say we suck I mean we really suck..  Yet for some odd reason, great teams can only score 1 goal on us..maybe..maybe..because we have one of the best keepers of all time. 
But..this is why us American's don't bet on our home team..we can't score.  It's like betting on an NFL team that plays the wildcat every down even tho the defense is playing a 4-3 stuff the box every down.

Sure Dempsey's goal was nice and he's a legend in the making, but we basically won with 1 shot 1 goal...One of Italy's goal was actually a goal and the reason it wasn't 3-1 was because USA has one of the best keep's of all time. Halleluiah Howard

I'm sorry but Howard did  nothing all game long....didn't have to really because all of Italy's shots were straight at him. And at the end, the US defenders blocked everything....But I will agree he's one of their best players.

I hate to focus on negative aspects:

but this win was for

-the 5th generation Americans that root for Italy
-for the Eurosnobs
-for the people that don't support American soccer... etc etc

any random guy in Idaho (no offense to anyone there) who doesn't even care about soccer will hear this and go "woah, good for us" and move on about his day
