    Very poor defending on that goal allowed to Japan. Play to the outside, not across your goal, defending 101.

    Julie Foudy is so bad...

    Nice goal by Wambach.

    Agree on Foudy but Ian Darke is outstanding. Wow! Got lucky there.Rampone saves the day for the time being!

    Japan can win the world cup here.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    The US has only itself to blame. Choking 101. And I am so tired of hearing about all the turmoil and trauma in Japan. It has nothing to do with soccer nor this result, nor will this make anyone's lives who were affected by it easier.

    It will give the people of Japan something to smile about. I rag on the media more than most, but I don't mind that angle on this story. In the grand scheme you are correct, it is meaningless. But it brought joy to many on the island today.

    They look pretty happy to me. I am sure it does mean a little something?


    Brazil just missed ALL of their penalty kicks against Paraguay and are out of Copa America. Talk about a bad day for penalty kicking.

    If you get the chance pick up last month's issue of Four Four Two. There is an excellent cover feature called "The Death of Brazil" that covers the rapid decline of Brazilian soccer. Very interesting stuff.

    I hope it brought a few smiles to faces there and if we had to lose to someone, I am glad it was them. That being said, they laid it on so thick that you almost felt guilty for rooting for the Americans. I hate that kind of crap. Reminiscent of when the Saints won the Super Bowl. Katrina, Katrina, Katrina. Horrible, awful event that touched millions of lives and ruined plenty of those. But sports should never have been a part of that storyline.

    I have several very close friends in Japan. You can't possibly imagine what this has meant to them.

    I can't possibly imagine suffering through that kind of disaster.

    That being said, it's not what sports is supposed to be about. If it was, then we should just stop the MLB season right now and create some sort of relativistic misery index for every city that hosts a professional franchise and award the world series title to the city that scores the highest and distribute the pennants to the ones who score directly below.

    I am happy for the Japanese people, I am. I am not saying they shouldn't be thrilled or celebrate this victory and I hope it makes everyone there very, very happy. I am just so tired of producers of sporting events playing up that angle.

    Anyone who downplays the effect sports can have on a national psyche may be forgetting the returns of football and baseball following 9/11.

    Exactly. It is one of the things that makes sports great in my book.
