    The World’s Cup Tourney I find the most enjoyable to watch.

    The girls always seemed to play with a greater sense of *team* than the guys…the play between the team-mates is always more, less of the solo grandstanding I see in the Men’s play.

    all that said, it’d be nice to see the USA win, but I’ll still have a fine time watching the games I can catch…

    The score 2-1 for Germany could easily have been 4-0.

    However, Canada’s Sinclair provided a magnificent free kick. The ball went over the wall and past the outstretched arms of the German goalkeeper into the top right corner of the net. It was a beauty!

    I checked three Dutch newspapers today and not one of them mentioned the FIFA Womens’ World Cup of soccer. Well, I’m thoroughly pissed off. I’m screaming myself hoarse for the boys and they cannot return the favor? Well, that’s it! The Dutch soccer boys can drop dead as far as I’m concerned. I will never cheer for them again and I hope the FIFA World Cup will remain out of their reach.
