Referee Blues

The US just tied Italy in a game destroyed by an incompetent referee. He tossed two Americans and one Italian, leaving it a 10-9 man contest that exhausted everyone. The Italian was rightfully tossed (accusations of jingoism rejected) because he threw an elbow into the face of McBride in a flagrant foul, but the other two Americans were the victims of an erratic and inconsistent referee who will likely not work another game in this World Cup, if ever. Good riddance.

Trying to pull from life...still.
Trying to sketch in lines...peace.
Seeing the glass hold air
Will I know I was there?
