Another CONCACAF team, another headline performance in a big upset of the 2010 semifinalists. And it was another rally job, too, taking longer to form than the Dutch fightback last night. As for Uruguay, they only bothered to fire two non-PK shots with Luis the Artistically Productive Biter on the bench. The Ticos pulled off their most impressive World Cup win since a 1990 defeat of Sweden got them out of group play. Note to those who (yawn) prattle on about 0-0 ties, there has yet to be a single draw and all but two of the losing teams scored.
