USA! USA!

Can I just devote this post to saying how incredibly excited I am that the US women’s team is returning to the World Cup finals on Sunday after their victory over Germany today?

I was hesitant to post this, because I generally root for all teams that play beautiful soccer, and both Germany and the US are fantastic teams. But I’m American, so I can’t help but root for my nation’s team.

If you missed the game, here’s a 2-minute clip of the highlights. I’m really, really glad the US got a second goal, because the first goal came on a penalty kick that probably should have been taken from outside the box, not in it. And maybe Johnson should have gotten a red card for dragging down a German player on a goal-scoring opportunity, but I think the replays show the player was leaning way back and was going to fall down anyway.

    That second goal was pretty impressive. I’m very proud of our team for prevailing against a very tough opponent.

    My sister got tickets for the final long ago with the hope in mind that the US would be in it. I’m excited that they are!
