Ronaldo!

I took a break from today's all-day HDNet coverage of Discovery's launch to watch England v Portugal's overtime. Ricardo was unbelievable in goal, stopping all but one of the penalty kicks, and Robinson just didn't look ready. Cristiano Ronaldo locked up the Portugal win with a beautiful penalty kick, faking out keeper Robinson, who dove right as the ball sailed past his left side into the net.

T minus one hour and counting. There should be one more scheduled hold before the 3:49pm EDT launch, and there's a potential heater problem that may scrub today's launch, even if the weather stays good.
