I would say, "I wasn't suggesting 'all' of you literally were" -
"You can't say 'all' of us are like that when there are 'some' out there that aren't."
"Right," I'd add, "I didn't mean like every single one is negative." For some reason I'd start to use "like" as a crutch in forming verbal sentences. "Like, it's not like 'all' of you are crazy-negative, out of control, sreaming-yelling lunatics that get their influence from Tammy or Identity Thief," I'd say, fearful for my life. "You guys are totally cool. I have no idea what I was saying."
All in all, not a good tournament for the United States. Brazil did not pan out. The team was outplayed in practically every game, notwithstanding much of the Portugal match, and the coach predicted his own troops wouldn't win the championship. Is it too much to ask for the trophy? I don't think so. I think it's time the mindset goes from "let's try not to run into each other" to "we're gonna try to win the damn trophy." And if we don't, we can blame the Soccer Dads. What a sorry bunch they are.
