Through to the Final



The United States beat Honduras last night, 2-1, in the Gold Cup semifinals in the Meadowlands - and in dramatic fashion, John O'Brien scoring the equalizer in the 86th minute and Oguchi Onyewu heading in the game-winner in injury time.

It was a narrow avoidance of an embarrassing loss to the Hondurans, who, to their credit, took it to the U.S. for much of the night and would have been worthy winners.

The U.S. will face Panama in the final on Sunday to crown CONCACAF's champion. The upstart Canaleros continued their improbable run by upsetting Colombia in the other semifinal.


**********

The White Sox dropped the opener of their four-game series to the Red Sox, 6-5. To make a long story short: three unearned runs given up by the Sox, a deadly error by the normally flawless Joe Crede in the ninth inning, and Luis Vizcaino doing his normal poor routine of a MLB reliever and offering up the game-winning solo shot to Manny Ramirez.

I'm taking deep breaths. In...out...in...out...
