That midfield shot was video game ****. It was about as fair as using Marino in Madden, ain't **** gonna stop 'em.
Congrats to our ladies. :1st:
But seriously, I think I understand why real soccer fans consider women's soccer everything but soccer. :lol:
90% of them can't even do a pass over 5 yards. :bobdole:
I like women's soccer better than men, I don't really like either but I enjoy the women's WC better than the men's. probably b/c our women's team is really good and can win championships while the men have no chance but I still enjoy the women more.
Yeah, that and Alex Morgan!

Much better to watch ladies running around in tight silk shorts than the dudes.
This world Cup was the highest viewed soccer event ever in the USA so i guess the country agrees as well :up:
It only got higher viewership because the women's national team has a chance to win it all and it was in good TV time slots.
It is much tougher for a men's national team to rise. In the men's world every country competes to go the tournament. And despite putting up the best teams it was pretty much only 4 teams who shared the WC title since 1954: Brazil, Germany, Italy and Argentina. Only Spain, France and England broke into that quartet once each. 20 World Cups since 1930. 15 times won one of the those teams the title.
Want to make it look worse? The top 3 teams (Brazil, Germany, Italy) shared the title 13 out of 20 WCs.
I wasn't really very fond of our men's National Teams in the past. I felt they were quite arrogant without having proven themselves. But the last WC they were really fighting. They got down and dirty and tried hard to compete and I think they accomplished a lot last year. Klinsmann was the right choice. A Gold Cup win this month and a good showing next year at the Copa and it will do wonders.
FIFA is best served to keep the women's competition in our hemisphere. Nobody else around the world is really paying much attention. At least they get good viewership in the US and Canada.
It was really bad soccer. :lol:
She makes more money than her hubby - and both play soccer. :lol:
Our best male athletes play football and basketball. If they played soccer we’d be competing for WC titles too. On the women’s side our best female athletes play soccer and basketball and we have top teams around the world in both sports.
As a Japan fan, just want to say that although the US deserved the win and the cup, I still prefer our brand of soccer. No, we don't have enough size/strength to ever win a World Cup (men or women), but the technical skill and clever playmaking are a treat to watch.
Yeah, I know, style points are for losers though. Congrats to team USA!
I might have been removed from civilization for almost two weeks but I was still able to catch USA vs Germany at Spanish Cay and the final at Guana Cay. USA!
Couldn't be more proud of the way they dealt with media adversity and how Ellis and the team rose to the occasion. Great ****ing job Ladies!!!
I think I'd rather see pics of your Abacos trip actually. (says the sore loser)
