I’m doing some catching up here this morning, so bear with me.
The USWNT came away from their first match of the Peace Queen Cup with a 2-1 win over Australia on the strength of goals by Natasha Kai and Abby Wambach. From what I read in the match report and the post-game quotes, it sounds like the back line (Mitts, Rampone, Markgraf and Chalupney) is starting to gel, which sounds very good to me!
Next up for the US is Brazil – at 1AM (ET) on the 17th. Hmmmm.
Tiger Woods birdied on the 18th and forced a play-off in the US Open today … gimpy leg and all. Looks to me like Rocco Mediate has his work cut out for him today.
The Phillies start a series vs. the Red Sox today … in Philly … and as prep, here’s a heartwarming piece by Mike Schmidt about the new “Charlie Hustle.” (It’s about Phillies manager Charlie Manuel and his benching of Jimmy Rollins for not hustling …) Guess “Manny being Manny” wouldn’t cut it in Charlie’s house.
And HollyCornblog is heading home from the lake today … with lots of new beer recipes to start fermenting!
