I opened up MSNBC this morning and saw the news that Obama has picked Biden. Probably a smart move … experience and gravitas and whiteness and all. I was kinda hoping for something more interesting – but would rather win. So Biden seems good. Biden I can live with. (But wouldn’t Pia have been fun?)
I’m gonna have to shift gears eventually … but there are still some soccer tidbits worth sharing. (And, of course, we are still waiting for Beulah’s final word on the whole thing … so bear with me.) Come to think of it, I’d have liked a Pia/Beulah shared VP slot. Hmmmm … I digress …
There’s lots of new stuff on the WNT Blog, including some video … and the promise of more. (I’d like to see some footage of Sunil on his knees, offering a new contract to Pia … anyone get any photos of that???)
We’ve got Andrea Canales on Sideline Views, where her post prompted a discussion that turned into yet another argument about the whole Women’s World Cup fiasco. Lindsey Dolich has also weighed in with her match report and player ratings.
Here’s a sweet article from South Jersey’s Courier-Post about Carli Lloyd and her disciplined road to the Olympics. Carli, you definitely deserve some R&R at “the Shore.” Go for it, girl!
In another piece (from the NBC Olympics site) I love what Carli says about Pia:
“Everything about Pia is contagious — her smile, her laugh, her singing, her guitar playing,” Lloyd said. “She just believes in every single one of us and I never wanted to win so bad for a coach in my entire life. She’s is going to take this team and really change U.S. women’s soccer.”
I think that as a prerequisite for running for the White House (which is, after all, another home) candidates should be expected to know their baseline number of homes. Don’t you?
