American sports fans are pretty bummed today after watching the USA got eliminated by Belgium yesterday at the 2014 FIFA World Cup. (In retrospect, those hype videos kind of make things worse, don’t they?) However, this is hardly the first time we’ve had our hearts ripped on the international stage. It’s happened before, and it will happen again—probably at the next World Cup.
So where does yesterday’s loss rank amongst all the others? That is the topic of today’s list. So go grab another cup of coffee, sit back, and take a look. Then wipe away your red, white, and blue tears and get on with your life.
