For those of you who continue to ignore women's soccer, you are missing out! First, you should read this.

Back to World Cup 2011, team USA has had quite a journey to the finals. The quarter final match with Brazil was AMAZING! Wambach's header in the 122 minute was perfect and at that point I knew the USA would win in penalty kicks. Of course Hope Solo had a beautiful save on the third kick and that was enough to send USA to the semis. The Semi-final game against France was a really great game to watch, both teams played really well. With some great defending from the US and some quick breaks for our offense we were able to pull ahead (with a Wambach header, of course) and ensure the win with a goal from Morgan.
Now to Sunday where USA will face a great Japanese team. It should be another great game and a great showcase for women's soccer. Women's soccer has come a long way and it is a fun game to watch. You don't get the individual skill like in the men's game but you do get great team play and even better sportsmanship. I encourage everyone to watch the game and cheer for you home team.
We will be watching the game on a big screen in civic center plaza, outside of city hall in San Francisco. Please join us, if you are interested! USA USA USA!
