Is anyone else following the very-poorly-publicized Women’s World Cup?
I’m enjoying it quite a bit… the Brazil-Sweden game was extremely exciting, and I was glad to see the US defeat their arch-rivals, Norway. Abby Wambach was amazing in the US-Norway game, although Mia Hamm had a bit of an off-game.
Anyhow, I haven’t seen any chatter about it on the SDMB at all, so here’s a thread in which to discuss it.
Oh, and I contend that the US Women’s team is just about the perfect team to be a fan of. They’re really good, so they win a lot, which is fun, but they’re not quite good enough that victory can be taken for granted. Certainly, their loss to Norway in the 2000 Olympics was one of the most exciting things I’ve ever seen…
