March is arriving like a lion here in NH, with maybe as much as another foot of snow in these parts when all is said and done. One thing that means is that the NHIAA Girls’ Class M Basketball Final between Campbell and Conant has been postponed and will be played at 7:30PM up at Plymouth State University … on Monday night, March 3rd. (I am psyched about the change, as I wouldn’t have been able to go to the game tonight.)
In other sports news, the Eagles had a nice acquisition yesterday … although I’ll miss Lito Sheppard if he goes (as seems likely). The Phillies are gearing up for another good run, and Chester, PA has been awarded an MLS franchise!
For some USWNT updates, here’s the blog from the Algarve. Pretty fluffy stuff, but it’s what we’ve got! Apparently there will be news from Gayle Bryan on the Fair Game Blog (gotta add that one to my blogroll) starting next week. And while you’re waiting for Algarve news, check out that Ebay link re. Julie Foudy’s high school yearbook! The USWNT has its first match (vs. China) on Wednesday. Here’s the schedule:
March 5 vs. China at 8:45 a.m. ET.
March 7 vs. Italy at 8:45 a.m. ET.
March 10 vs. Norway at 10 a.m. ET.
Game reports will be available at ussoccer.com on matchtracker. I’ll let you know if I hear of any TV or streaming video coverage!
While we’re waiting for the Algarve to get underway, here are some miscellaneous videos of interest: Celebrating Mia (music by KT Tunstall), USWNT-You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet, and finally, a wonderful Celebration of Mia and Jules (to the tune of U2’s “Beautiful Day”)! I am verklempft!
