Women's World Cup Consolation Game Thread: France vs. Sweden, 8:30a

Another excuse to watch SoSG crush Laure Boulleau! I'm in!

Except, France IS playing the Swedish national women's team. Wow. So many umlauts! So many choices! But I think I'd have to go with Josefine Öqvist:

Let me say, this is a consolation match to watch. And I'd like to offer help with the consoling.

I am here to console Josefine regarding the tragic ripping of her top.

Game is on ESPN2 around these here parts (British Open on the flagship)

EK, I don't want to get into a Flo-Deltalina thing, but I think I'm Laure over Josefine, right now.

I need a comparative video of Josefine giggling.

So many umlauts, so little time.

"Gaëtane Thiney"

I think I sprained my tongue trying to say that out loud.

Not that I'm watching this instead of golf!

I've always been a fan of the Swedish Efficiency Team.

France down 1-0 at the end of the first half.

The Swedish women were exploiting The French women's defenses.

Man, that was fun to watch...

Steve Sax said...

Good news: it's tied 1-1

Bad news: lovely Laure Boulleau is not playing.

Steve Sax said...

Huh, and Josefine Ovqist apparently got a red card.

SoSG EK hopes to be the one to administer the punishment.

MR.F said...

Why wasn't Laure playing?!

Steve Sax said...

I will never tell...

Fernie V said...

From the numerous game film I recently watched, Laure doesn't appear to be very skilled.

Fernie V said...

I don't believe she got any playing time vs USA. I knew it was to good to be true.

Eric Karros said...

Sax, normally I'd agree that Laure > Josefine, but the senseless damage to Josefine's shirt pulls at my heartstrings.

So who won?

Jason said...

@EK

We all did.

Spank alunda Laure

Wish I were Laure's left hand in the photo.

Jason said...

18!

Steve Sax said...

Ripping off your shirt while wading in a bikini is worth a red card, apparently.

Jason said...

I believe it's also worth a gold card at several fine, adult establishments.
