    Pretty excited (mainly for my daughter who has started watching more and more soccer) the only thing that pisses me off is that many of the games will be played on turf...

    Concerning World Cup soccer, I actually enjoy watching the women's game more. The women (with the possible exception of Brazil) actually take pride in being tough as opposed to the men whom now embrace the pitch drama and flop more than WV.

    Also, I don't understand how anyone can't appreciate the beauty of these women's athleticism.

    21 days to go!

    The earliest ever kick-off time was 10.00 when Germany and Sweden met at the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2003 USA™ Final at the then-Home Depot Center in Carson, California.

    Conversely, the latest kick-off time was 21.30, for the quarter-final between Brazil and Nigeria in Washington DC, also during USA 1999. The most common kick-off time is 20.00, with 21 matches having been played at this time.

    So glad you posted this, I wouldve missed it.

    Megan Rapinoe is one of my idols, one of the greatest players I have ever watched, golden foot!

    Watched Heroes: The Story of the FIFA Women's World Cup earlier today. Cool recap on the history of the women's World Cup.

    An embarrassing penalty call for FIFA against China. Home cookin no doubt. FIFA continues to fix outcomes.

    WHAT?! It was a bold call but certainly the right one. Adriana Leon took an elbow to the face from a raised arm. That's a penalty cut and dry. Just so happened to be in the box so Canada had the opportunity for a penalty kick and they took advantage of it. Nothing quirky there.

    You guys really missed out if you didn't catch the Netherlands vs New Zealand game last night. Both teams fielded some beautiful athletes.

    Certainly are. They have a very talented and veteran team. Also to boot, CIV is not very good. That was an awful matchup. Group B is very lopsided with Norway and Germany being very strong competitors and Thailand and CIV just happy to have made the tourney.

    10-0 was impressive regardless of who they played. CIV may not be a great team but they are not a disaster either. The way Germany dominated was a rare sight in these high level competitions.

    Australia came out fast and aggressive and Solo made some great saves until we settled in. Rapinoe has incredible skills, great game by her. Lloyd was pretty much invisible but Laroux played a very good game with Rapinoe on the left side. Wambach looked a little rusty but still had chances. Liked the intensity from the newbie defender Julie Johnston. All around, good stuff once we started playing our game.

    Next up: Sweden and our old coach, Sundhage. Should be a good one.

    June 12th: USA vs Sweden @ 8pm ET.

    *Also looking forward to seeing Morgan start soon. Now that she's 100% healthy and once she's back in game shape I see no reason why she shouldn't get the nod.

    What a swing in the second half of the SWE vs NGA game with Nigeria scoring back to back goals in the 50' & 53'. Still watching at the 55' mark. Good game.

    What a goal at the 87'. "Megged" the goalie!.

    Also of note: The yellow card on Rapinoe was weak. Looked to me as though De Vanna lost her footing and Rapinoe was simply tracking her from behind. Foul, yes. Card, no.

    Just started the Cameroon vs Ecuador game.

    Weak sauce big time. There is speculation she'll take another yellow in group stages to reset it for final stages, if we beat Sweden. I was wrong, she will play in the next match.
