The fourth Korea game of the World Cup, and no one knew if they'd make it this far. The weather's killer today. I think everyone wishes it would just go on and rain.

And then, finally, with a serious little face, bowed. Sometimes you do stop and think, just where the hell am I? But it's too late to go back now.
