Whichever one has an airport that was used during The Revolutionary War of course.

We should all be happy if this is the most pressing issue we have to deal with.

I think it's a lose-lose situation for Trump, he has said that he would invite them so if he doesn't he looks spiteful. If he invites them and they refuse it looks bad, I would normally say it would be bad on both sides but given the current climate it's probably worse on Trump.

Congrats they were fantastic. I got to watch England vs Sweden yesterday...it was top-shelf playing and women's football should be supported by everyone.

So being a great PK hitter in and being used in PK situations is political, RIGHT. Now if only they would do what hockey does on penalty shots or basketball does on free throws, we wouldn't have this conversation at all unless Rapinoe was always fouled.

Lets be honest, theres not much competition vs the US. They have won 50% of the world cups and 4 of 6 gold medals. Silver in 1 and nada in the other. I'd say they are a powerhouse in the sport. The field is basically US, Germany, Norway, Sweden and Japan.

So she lives in a country that that has sports programs like no other since the USSR for women, but somehow feels oppressed. At least not as oppressed as the Christian girl they kicked off the team for refusing the wear a rainbow LGBTQ jersey earlier in the season.

Which instrumentally is "God Save the Queen". Seriously, "America (My Country Tis of Thee)" is a relyriced "God Save the Queen". "God Save the Queen" has a good 100 years on "America (My Country Tis of Thee)", Canada who was a subject years after America didn't even guam off of the motherland for their beautiful anthem "Oh Canada."

If you ask me, I've always said "America The Beautiful" which WWE used for their anthem at each and every American based WrestleMania since 1999 (a few times they used "The Star Spangled Banner" such as WrestleMania VIII) should be the anthem. Not for military ties but because the Star Spangled Banner is damn hard to sing. No other anthem is that hard and most are easy to actually sing along with such as "Oh Canada" and "God Save the Queen" or even the Russian national anthem (which Nikolai Volkov use to sing before any match in WWF.)
