Dagger in hand

A man of prodigious fortune, coming to add his opinion to some light discussion that was going on casually at his table, began precisely thus: "It can only be a liar or an ignoramus who will say otherwise than," and so on. Pursue that philosophical point, dagger in hand.

--Michel de Montaigne, Of the art of discussion.

THANK YOU SOUTH KOREA!: Well, it would have been nice to finish the first round in a blaze of glory, but given that France, Portugal and Argentina are on their way home, we really can't complain---no-one expected us to get this far. And while it would have been fun to play Italy, I guess we have slightly better odds to survive against Mexico. Come on people, let's support these guys! So the games are at 2 in the morning. It's fun to root for the U.S. in a sport where we're the long-shot underdogs.
