The Soccer game

It looks like a lot people are picking up on the Iraqi win in the Asia Cup soccer tournament. One really cool part I didn't notice earlier is that Iraq won 1-0 and the line that scored the goal was 1 Shiite, 1 Sunni, and 1 Kurd. It just doesn't get any cooler than that.

Omar has a great read at Iraq The Model you have to check out.

Our players, tonight our heroes, learned that only with team work they had a chance to win.
May our politicians learn from the players and from the fans who are painting a glorious image of unity and national pride, and let the terrorists know that nothing can kill the spirit of the sons of the immortal Tigris and Euphrates.

The fear is gone, the curfew is ignored, tonight Iraq knows only joy...

That might be a pretty good description of pride.
