It was the sports equivalent of the phony war – LeBron James, the best basketball player in the world, opted out of his contract with the Miami Heat, and then … silence.
Left without the concrete date and time of The Decision four years earlier, fans went wild with speculation, analyzing flight paths and hacking website code to determine whether James would re-sign with the Heat or return to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Now, finally, we have a decision, if not a Decision: LeBron is going back to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

It wasn't just a bad dream. Brazilians woke up Wednesday to dreadful headlines describing the shame and humiliation of their soccer team's historic defeat of 7-1 to Germany in the World Cup's semifinal.

"It was the most shameful performance of all times," said Almir Rogelio, 32, who was waiting at a newspaper stand for a friend. "I honestly woke up and didn't even want to remember what happened."

If you're just looking at the scores, the United States' World Cup journey was a slow slide of disappointment: a win, then a draw, then a 1-0 loss, then finally a 2-1 loss to Belgium that knocked them out of the tournament in the Round of 16.

Even in defeat the American side earned the respect of soccer fans the world over, scoring a late goal in extra time and finding a national hero in goalie Tim Howard, whose valiant defense kept competitive what should have been a rout.
