No equal time for women, it seems.

In any case, I hope USA absolutely clobbers China tomorrow (Friday 6/26/15).

And in Germany vs. France, I hope the announcers can agree to pronounce "Le Sommer" correctly.
It's just as bad, if not worse, for women's softball! Rarely hear much about their college games, and there is plenty of interest!

I expected a France win, but the German women dug deep and tied it at the 85th minute! Then the always hated (yet intense) PK's did France in, thanks to a telegraphed shaky kick and an alert German goalie.

The US women were short a couple of regular players thanks to yellow cards, and had difficulty putting away a very young Chinese team. US better get their act together for Germany!

I sat next to her and we discussed the apparent win for France. I then recalled and repeated something I heard a WW2 Veteran say ages ago in reference to the French . . . "They don't know how to finish it!"

My wife asked where the saying came from. I went into what I recalled in conversation with the old guy. As I explained, there came the handball against France. From that moment on, I knew the Germans would play like sharks who smell blood. The look on the French players slowly turned from confident to defeated.

To the credit of the French, they took the game all the way to the PK phase.

Maybe I shouldn't have repeated what the old guy said.
The good news? The French didn't surrender. They just flat out lost!

Dunno, Danno. That seems rather personal to me!

That was a pretty good game last night. I thought the US was the better team, but they got some breaks and didn't finish really good opportunities. The German team came out like crazy to start the game...what pressure they were putting on. I assumed it couldn't last and basically died out after about 15 minutes when the US took more control. Pretty fun to watch.
