KM: I know you're disappointed the U.S. didn't go further in the World Cup, but are you happy with the impact you guys had here? It seems like the sport turned a corner.
LD: I think so. We saw the YouTube clips of people reacting to the winning goal against Algeria. At least for that moment, people were inspired. It's a cool feeling.
