Tomorrow at 6AM we’ll start the next leg of the Olympic tournament journey. There’s not a lot in the way of soccer news in the interim. The WNT Blog is a good place to track the USWNT’s travels and preparation for tomorrow’s showdown with Canada. An upbeat and determined Canadian squad is looking for a big win … and the Boston Breakers‘ site has links to some of the players’ website and blogs, as follows: Angela Hucles, Lori Chalupny, Heather Mitts, Lindsay Tarpley, Shannon Boxx, Kristine Lilly, Abby Wambach, and Leslie Osborne. If nothing else, it’s fascinating to see how each individual chooses to present/market herself.
Oh yeah, and there are a couple of conventions on the horizon … and John Edwards will be participating in neither of them! (Who’d have thought he’d end up sharing the anti-limelight with the likes of Dick Cheney and – if they could get away with it – George W. Bush?)
Meanwhile, in a development that probably surprises no one, the very brittle Cindy McCain nearly broke after a fan shook her hand too hard. (What’s most puzzling to me about this story is the level of enthusiasm apparently generated by Ms. McCain. Clearly I am missing out on something!)
