Rooting for the Iraqis

I can not help but hope against hope the the Iraqi football team will win a medal in this Olympics. Sadly, they got knocked out of gold and silver contention when they lost to Paraguay today, but they face Italy on friday for the bronze.

The country has been through so much that you just want this for them. They are underdogs in the purest sense of the word and though I am not a fan of the sport, I would love to see that game.
