How would you feel if a giant defender smashed your eye socket with his elbow in midair, leaving you looking like you’ve grown a third cheekbone that is purple for some reason? If you’re USA midfielder Clint Dempsey, you score the go-ahead goal and then say this:

I mean, those type of things happen in football. I’m sure I’ve elbowed a couple of players as well. You know, there wasn’t a foul called in the play, but it’s a tough game. You just got to keep going and go on with it. I was able to get the goal, which, you know, was good.

What balls.
