A reunited Honduras celebrates

Not only did Jonathan's Bornstein's last-gasp equalizer earn him a invitation to the Central American country as an honored guest, but he might've helped stabilized the turmoiled nation.

At least for a while.

While Honduras has two men claiming leadership, all was forgotten Wednesday -- which was declared a national holiday -- with the first World Cup berth since 1982.

Plus, the U.S. might have earned a blood brother for life. Check out this bit from a recent Grant Wahl piece on SI.com.
An hour after the game, I received an e-mail from a friend in Honduras. There was pandemonium in the streets, he said, after Honduras had reached its first World Cup since 1982. "Right now the U.S. is king in this country," he wrote. "People in the streets are carrying Honduran and U.S. flags."
Awesome.
