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...
