    As I walked off the plane in my Dempsey shirt in the San Antonio Airport, as I passed security, I see a man in another Fulham shirt. I noticed a woman eyeballing us because we both were twinkies. I was excited to be in San Antonio to watch the game with some other Fulham fans.

    We got to the Rose and Lion and I commenced my drinking. I was ready for the game to start. We passed the time by talking to some nice chaps who supported Tottenham. Real nice brit who smoked like a chimney. The bar started to fill in for a bit, and everyone was supporting Fulham.

    The game was fun. I'm not sure if it would have been more nerveracking if we had ever held the lead. I was convinced we were going to penalties when we hit aet.

    I hate losing games like these. I'm also a TCU fan and I got to experience watching TCU lose in the Fiesta Bowl this year. It felt very similar. I was immensely proud of my team, but damn it I wanted to win! There will be more opportunities for glory.

    Now on to the WC, which I hope keeps my appetite satisfied until August.
