After 10 days of cloudy skies, wind and rain here in the Algarve, the sun finally came out on Saturday, bathing the south coast of Portugal in warm, comforting rays that the team has gotten to know so well at this tournament. The gusting winds even calmed and instead of providing chills, there was a nice cooling breeze. The U.S. team is hoping for a nice day on Monday for its Group B finale against Norway, especially on the wind-o-meter (is that a meteorological term?) as the wind wrecked havoc with the soccer ball in the USA's match with Iceland last Friday.
