This is for the Stamp Tax!

Tomorrow is possibly the biggest day in the history of our young nation. The United States plays England in the World Cup to avenge the injustices the colonies suffered at the hands of their British masters over two centuries ago.

Soccer fans will recall the last time these two met in the World Cup when the US upset the English in 1960. It still ranks among the most impressive (and surprising) victories of the US national team. Tomorrow, the US plans to repeat that event, although to much less surprise than the first time.

Kickoff is at 2:30pm EDT on ABC. England will wish they never quartered their troops in American homes!
