  • US Soccer chicks crush it in World Cup

    They put a beatdown on Thailand 13-0 and everyone seems to think they are meanies for piling it on.

    FiveThirtyEight wrote an article about how the US is the best team, but France was the slight favorite per their model due to home advantage (not sure if the betting markets agreed, didn't check). Anyway, they now show the US as the favorites again, but not by that much. Thailand was the 2nd worst team in the tournament. I'd imagine the gap between teams is much, much bigger in women's soccer as well.

              A wonderful performance by Crystal Dunn! She was instrumental in completely shutting down any late rush the exhausted Dutch players could attempt. She is so underrated. I hope she gets some props from people.

                  Every time you win the WC you get to add a star to the nation's jersey.

                    Don't quit yer day jobs ladies. Was fun watching that finals game. Couldn't believe more fouls weren't called. But it all worked out.
