After the United States loss to Colombia tonight in the opening group stage game 2-0, I could only blame one person for this, Steve Harvey. Colombia has been seeking revenge after Harvey mistakenly announced Miss Colombia as the winner of the 2015 Miss Universe Pageant, when she had actually came in second place. Only 8 minutes into the game, defender Christian Zapata came off a pick on a set piece and scored right past goalie Brad Guzan. James Rodriguez then added in a penalty in the 41st minute off a suspect handball call to put Colombia up 2-0. The U.S. team put themselves in a deficit and could never come back, ultimately losing 2-0. A Carlos Bacca shot off the post late in the game could have easily made the score 3-0. The best chance for the US came from a Clint Dempsey free kick late in the 63rd minute, which was denied by a diving David Ospina.
Nothing went right for the U.S. team tonight and we clearly cannot blame coach Jurgen Klinsmann or any of the players. The fault clearly lies on Steve Harvey. All he had to do was read the names on the card in the right order and none of this would have happened. Come on Steve, you are reading off lines on shows for a living. I am convinced that Steve Harvey has put a curse on the U.S. Men's National Team.. or maybe it was Pablo Escobar. In March, even the U.S. Men's U23 team lost to Colombia in Olympic qualifying. A coincidence? I think not. The curse of Steve Harvey is alive and well. This game puts the US men's national team in a rough start to the Copa America. Luckily Steve Harvey has no bad ties with Costa Rica or Paraguay, the other two teams in Group A. Keep your heads up U.S. soccer fans, at least we dominate in every other sport we've created.
