Lance Armstrong rides in his final Tour de France.

Lance Armstrong rode into Paris on Sunday, ending his historic run in the Tour de France with a whimper, not a bang. And that may have been a good thing too. Because the way Lance's 2010 Tour has gone, the most likely bang would have been a headfirst crash into the Arc de Triomphe. Read more»

U.S. v. Ghana, Royal Bafokeng Stadium, Rustenburg, South Africa.

Recent converts to both the U.S. soccer team and the World Cup may not yet have fully grasped some of the implications of the American defeat. After all, we are a “wait till next year” nation. But what makes the World Cup so compelling is that it requires you to wait an eternity — four more years — for your next fix. Read more»

Michael Bradley of the U.S. team converses with the referee while medics attend to Slovenia's Nejc Pecnik during the U.S.-Slovenia match June 18.

Of all the expectations for World Cup 2010, perhaps the most heartfelt was that an African setting might lead to an African breakthrough. Instead South Africa has witnessed an African fiasco: so far the six African teams have combined for just one win in a dozen games. Read more»

The U.S. team salutes its fans after the opening-round draw with England.

It is a maxim of American football that "a tie is like kissing your sister." But in the rest of the world, a tie can be something far, far better, and even beautiful. The U.S. opened with a 1-1 draw against England, a tie that, for the underdog Americans, was even better than kissing Angelina Jolie (or, if you prefer, Brad Pitt). Read more»

Donovan plays against Jamaica in 2006.

To the faithful few who followed American soccer fortunes long before David Beckham blessed us with his presence, the young Landon Donovan went from the American wunderkind to its wuss with remarkable speed. Donovan now hopes to make his mark on the world stage in a more indelible fashion than with his first World Cup romp. Read more»

Wayne Rooney scores against Arsenal.

It always seems hyperbolic when writers insist that the World Cup hopes of a nation rest on any single player. But in the case of England – with its desperate desire, after 44 years, for another Cup championship – and its 24-year-old superstar, Rooney, it seems a bit understated. Read more»
