How can a tie game be considered a miracle for one of the teams? New Zealand made one lucky goal seven minutes into the game, and then held on, never making another shot again! Result, New Zealand 1, Italy 1, and New Zealand is delirious with joy. Whatever. I very much enjoyed playing the game when I was in junior high school, but I played mostly pick-up games, and played until dark on St. Paul Riverside’s field. I’ve yet to enjoy watching soccer on television, but I suppose I’ll try it again. Seven billion people can’t all be wrong.
