Women's World Cup Game Thread: US vs. France, 9a

Fresh off a death-defying escape vs. Brazil in the quarterfinals, the US team goes on to face France, who knocked off England last round (also in PKs). Let's go storm that Bastille, ladies.

Gamecast here.

UPDATE (8:33a): Here's Laure Boulleau of the French team, to get you all excited. For the match, that is.

A game with a bunch of chicks, and no picture of a hot one.

Viva La France,mang!

Did Lauren Cheney (UCLA!) score in the ninth minute to give the US a 1-0 lead? Gamecast says she did, but the commentary on the side has no record of it...

Don't tell me refs took it away

Steve Sax said...

Aha, refresh solved it.

SHE SCORED!!!

USA!

france seems to have taken a lot more shots than we have

Steve Sax said...

wow, all you guys and gals are actually WORKING today.

What the hell? ESPN's vaunted soccernet has a stupid placeholder where the player photos are supposed to be. How am I supposed to tell when the hot one scores (or saves or flops or whatever)?

In solidarity with these women, I've updated my profile pic.

I'm watching "The View".

3-1 US in extra time in the second half

Gotta love the fact that France cambe cak to tie in the 55th minute, and the law firm of Wamback and Morgan struck in the 79th and 82nd minute to ice the deal.

USA!!!

It's all over but the heartbreak! USA advances to meet either Japan or Sweden

For the hot-player-photo-loving audience of this blog, I am hopeful it's Sweden

World B. Dusty said...

Hell yeah! The French, once again, have retreated.

Thank god the hawt chick scored for the US!

My son has a secret crush on Megan Rapinoe. I'll take Hope Solo any day of the week, because she's my height.

MR.F said...

Me: I love you.
Hope Solo: I know.

@RBN

Not so secret any more! (taunts RBNlad)

Fernie V said...

I hope Sweden wins for the photo, but didn't they beat us.

Fernie V said...

All I know from soccer is solo and wambach. So was hoping we had another or hotter chick then Solo.

Fuck soccer
