I Love Womens

DCU had their best win this year (on the road vs. top of the table NYRB) with DeRo proving his worth.

But that pales in comparison to the USWNT at the WWC. That might have been one of the best live games I've seen, with the ups and downs, the quality of the Marta and Wambach goals, Hope Solo's saves and the PKs by the US. I've never seen a better set of penalty kicks taken, hands down. Every single one in the side netting, low, high. Astonishing.

Looking forward to the game against France on Wednesday. I'm a sucker for this patriotic stuff. So bad I'm willing to potentially tarnish my credibility with this animation:

nothing tarnished here. never seen anything like that game in any sport. best thing for me was it's like WNT conquered gamesmanship and questionable calls with heart, hustle and never say die attitude. what's that thing i heard today... these colors don't run. unless it's 32 minutes into extra time.

a half jokingly brian straus in the WaPo today: "A seminal moment in American history. Watching that game was like riding a bald eagle while watching Abraham Lincoln read the Gettysburg Address as he exited the Apollo 11 lunar module."
