Post-Game Thread: Japan 2, France 1 (Womens Soccer)

Alas, the Olympics are over the Olympics won't include a gold or silver medal for Laure Boulleau, following today's 2-1 defeat at the hand of the Japanese. To be truthful, Laure didn't play. But we are still sad, just as she appears above.

Laure's next game is the bronze medal game on August 9 at 5a PT, versus Canada, which just lost in a heartbreaker.

Oh, and Canada is up on Team USA 1-0 in the 36th minute of play. Go USA!

UPDATE 1:37p: Wambach scores in the 80th minute on a penalty to tie it at 3. To extra time we go!

UPDATE 2:20p: Alex Morgan scores! 4-3 USA final.

If this is the semi-final, is there no bronze medal game?

Spank Horst said...

Just saw the replay of the Canadian goal. Hope Solo looked like a fool.

Spank Horst said...

wow. Corner kick goal for the US. that was pretty good.

1-1

Go Canada!

MR.F said...

GOAL USA!

Dusty Baker said...

Canada has a woman named Carmelina Moscato. Awesome name!

Dusty Baker said...

1-1 ladies. Now let's put the screws to America's hat.

Spank Horst said...

There usually is a bronze medal game. we'll find out when the US loses.

Spank Horst said...

CANADA!!!!!!

2-1

Dusty Baker said...

2-1 Well god dammit.

MR.F said...

BAHHHH

MR.F said...

Why you <3 Canadia, Spank?

Spank Horst said...

wild fucking match.

2-2.

MR.F said...

GOAL USA!

Dusty Baker said...

2-2!

Come on - put the screws to these nappy headed hoes.

Spank Horst said...

HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!

3-2 Canada.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm not able to watch, just follow online. How shitty is the US defense???

MR.F said...

Pho.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Ok, this match is ridiculous.

Franklin Stubbs said...

@db

The defense on the set pieces is HIGHLY suspect.

Spank Horst said...

Refs are giving free kicks to the US. Can't let the olympic darlings lose i guess.

Dusty Baker said...

That saucy little minx Sydney Leroux coming on as a sub.

Franklin Stubbs said...

3 all, bishes.

Spank Horst said...

Weak. 3-3

Dusty Baker said...

Thx Stubbsy.

Isn't that exactly what Brandy Chastain was calling out when Hope Solo attacked her on the twitters?

Dusty Baker said...

Wambach missed a sitter, it seems.

Dusty Baker said...

What are you guys doing, working or something?

Steve Sax said...

Tied at 3. Extra time! Post updated.

Dusty Baker said...

I just looked up pictures of Leroux. She is a right saucy little minx.

Franklin Stubbs said...

@db

Indeed, it was exactly Chastain's criticism. Athletes getting in fights with media doesn't often end well.

Dusty Baker said...

Where is the game now? It's as if all the live bloggers only got paid to type for regular time.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Still tied after 1st half of extra time.

Spank Horst said...

I lost interest after the refs gave the USA a free kick for a goal kick violation which had a big impact on the game.

Dusty Baker said...

Wow - some controversy! Will the Canadians be pissed about that if they lose?

Will I order some Canadian bacon on my pizza tonight?

Franklin Stubbs said...

4-3 USA. Canada's balls probably ought to be in a tangle.

Steve Sax said...

Holy cow, Morgan scored?

I guess we may have to pick up another SoSG Womens Soccer love (and succumb to the fanerman homerville!).

Franklin Stubbs said...

I gotta say, that was probably a 2-3 Canada victory, in reality, but you play it like the call it.

ALEX FUCKING MORGAN!!!!!!!

Franklin Stubbs said...

^they

Spank Horst said...

Go Japan!

Cc:Dustettes

Orel said...

Get me pictures of Alex Morgan STAT!

MR.F said...

Pics?

MR.F said...

Gif?

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck yeah! This is the only US team I root for so I'm glad to have this win, but not to have the controversy. The Spanktroversy, if you will.

Dusty Baker said...

Good work, Fanerman!

Franklin Stubbs said...

You'll always have 2010, Canada.

Orel said...

Nice work, Mr. F!

All I have to say is: Laure who?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Warranted or not, that's a downright respectable header.

Spank Horst said...

The world needs more Brandi
Chastains annoying voice.

Orel said...

NBC streaming the game online sans commentary was a nice touch.

MR.F said...

For Spank

Dusty Baker said...

Mr. F:

For Spank or for spank?

Dusty Baker said...

Oh I was assuming it was soccer star porn, not a jingoistic taunt from an unlikely guy!

Spank Horst said...

i don't do that bestiality shit. Even i have some standards.

Spank Horst said...

Go Mexico!

Steve Sax said...

wow, how far this comment thread has fallen. guess i'd better get the GT up quick before we degrade further

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah let's jump right to the GT.

Steve Sax said...

USA mens hoops up by only one at half over argentina (60-59)

Spank Horst said...

Avi change for tomorrows match.

MR.F said...

Harden's "fuck you three". Yay or nay?

Dusty Baker said...

Wasn't watching. Wha happened?

Steve Sax said...

scoooby doo! (NPUT)
