You were expecting maybe Brandi Chastain?
Folks, the DN loves three things: broadband Internets connections, books on war, and cute soccer babes playing a game we would otherwise ignore -- like for instance Heather Mitts. But not long are the days of wine and roses and sports bras and short shorts. US Women's World Cup Soccer Team, you have let the terrorists win.
The Lady Patriots (just go with it) lost in their semi-final match against perennial powerhouse (your guess is as good as ours) Brazil yesterday, by a score of 4-0 (Is that a lot? Never mind). And after the soccer match ended a blame game broke out, apparently. Baltimore Sun writer and editor Bill Ordine details the fun fallout on his "O, by the Way" blog. O, dear God, is that really its name?
So shape up, soccer honeys. One more embarrassing loss like this and women's futbol may be relegated to fourth-tier status in American sports culture. Now get out there and bend something ala Beckham!
