    I'm not even a soccer but I watched the end of the game and tell me why did I get mad when we lost?

    That was some of the worst penalty kicks I've seen on the professional level. Not to take anything away from Japan's keeper, she was brilliant. I just don't see how you overshoot the goal by 5 feet like the second kicker did. Or how you don't shoot for the outer edges of the goals like the first and third kicker. Wambach nailed hers, but everything else was simply horrible...

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

    Remember watching that game. Was quite a boring final. That miss from Baggio is a classical example of even the best of players letting the pressure of the moment get to them. And Baggio was one hell of a player.

    As for the Women's World Cup, considering what Japan has been through in recent months, its hard to begrudge them taking the trophy.

    No doubt. I didn't find myself nearly as upset as I should have been that we lost. That team deserved it, and the country itself needed a win in something...
