So how to feel about Wednesday's result in Philadelphia, where a tie felt like a win because: 1) It came off a rally; 2) Because the United States was clearly better through the final 20-30 minutes, and; 3) Because the Americans didn't get run plum off the field, a la the Rose Bowl roasting they took from Mexico six weeks back.

It's Klinsmann's world at the moment; the rest of us, well, you know...

Doing some reporting for's U.S.-Mexico preview piece that should go up some time today, I spoke by phone to a couple of American players Monday from Philadelphia.

The score read 4-2 in favor of Mexico, following a crippling second half performance by the U.S.'s Southern neighbors. Two early goals in favor of the Americans was a dream start after several nearly disastrous performances leading up to the Gold Cup Final, in the sold out Rose Bowl of Pasadena, California.
