None that actually matter to most folks.
And no, it wasn't a massive Miami Heat chokejob, they let a goal slip by that they shouldn't have.
It was a little more than that. They had at least 3 or 4 opportunities where they should have scored. Not just a shot on goal, but one they should have converted. They just could not do it. For a professional soccer player, considered the best in the world, to take a shot and not even get it close is pathetic. It was a choke job in many ways.
Not the game that I saw, I suppose.
It is possible that it simply was a good game and they got beat. It's funny that in today's world that we so desperately need to start blaming folks if things don't go perfectly.
They played pretty well over their heads to get by Brazil and the games were fun to watch. I don't feel any great urge to complain and start labelling them as chokers over it.
I'm just an old softie, I know.
