GOOAAALLLL! I wanted to get one more Immigrant of the Day in before the big day tomorrow in Beijing because an immigrant became the first American to score points in the 2008 Olympics. Some of you may not know that the men's and women's soccer matches actually already started and thanks to the fancy footwork of Scottish-born midfielder Stuart Holden, the US defeated Japan 1-0 in its opening match. When he's not scoring goals at the Olympics, Holden plays for Major League Soccer's Houston Dynamo.

Incidentally, I squeezed an extra entry in today because of the breaking news on Mr. Holden and also because I'm saving a special honoree for tomorrow. I'm sure some of you can guess who that will be.
