    USA v Japan Women's World Cup Finals

    After watching the ladies come back and knock out Brazil, then beat France despite being arguably outplayed, I'd be pretty surprised if we don't beat Japan. They are somewhat of a Cinderella team, so it's hard to root against them, especially considering the devastation with the recent earthquakes. Anyone else been watching the World Cup?

    On a side note, Hope Solo is a ridiculous name. Sounds like the name of a superhero from a really bad indie movie. One hell of a goalkeeper though...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    I watched the Brazil game and i thought it was one of the most exciting soccer games ever, they kept fighting every damned second, as for Hope Solo that's an awesome name imo, and i love her fire, when asked about where the team got its confidence from she replied "it comes from cause we know we're damn good"

    I've watched some of it, and I think we have a great chance at beating Japan. We didn't play as well today against France, but I think the US should beat Japan.

    Missed today's game (**** you work) but I will absolutely watch the Japan game. Hope Solo makes me salivate.
    but when the trumpets blew again and the knights charged, the name they cried was "Stannis! Stannis! STANNIS!"

    She always has this look in her eyes like she could straight up punch my heart straight out of my chest with minimal effort. It's a little scary. But that entire team is made up of hotties. That Swedish team was nothing to balk at either...

    Find it crazy how a good proportion of Americans only care about football(soccer) when a big tournament comes round. Not having a go, just find it strange.

    I watch it as much as I can. The issue is that it's never televised here in the states. We have a Professional Soccer League, but none of the TV stations carry the games. It sucks for fans like myself because no one gives a crap about the sport here. That's why I love it when the World Cup is going on, I can actually watch a few games...

    That game against Brazil was easily the best soccer match I've ever seen.
