Something happened quite suddenly in he last ten or twenty years: American women athletes have proven themselves time and again to be world class contenders. Today, the U.S. Women’s Team beat Japan 5-2 for the 2015 World Cup in soccer.
Although I was not able to watch the game, I am delighted to hear that our women won, and convincingly, too.
I would like to see soccer football replace the so-called American football with its armored players pawing the dirt with their feet during the innumerable time-outs that were no doubt created solely for the convenience of advertisers. Soccer football is the real deal: It goes back and forth in waves until a sudden break-out results in a goal.
Americans will always have problem with the concept of a tied game, especially when the result is a 0-0 tie. But even some of those games are exciting.
Way to go, Ladies!
