ARLINGTON, Va. - Greetings from one of the truly legendary gathering places for American soccer fans, Summers Restaurant. It won the first ever U.S. Soccer Best Soccer Bar competition, and it hasn't changed a bit since. I spent many weekend afternoons at the long table in the back when I was in high school.

I had to come to Washington today for some stuff I scheduled before the World Cup started, so I knew this was the place to be. I got in early enough to get a table, and I might have been the last one to be so lucky. They stopped letting new customers in well over an hour before kickoff.

It looks like my laptop battery will hold up just long enough to host a live chat during the game. So come on in and share your thoughts on the action.
