So Alice … what are you doing today?
Here’s a thought … starting at 11:45 AM on ESPN … the USWNT quest to win the World Cup … or, might we say, score goals … begins.
I. of course, will be at work … and trying to avoid the score (sadly, not all that difficult) so I can watch tonight.
Boltgirl will be watching and (hopefully) keeping her breakfast down.
The full US roster is as follows:
U.S. ROSTER BY POSITION
GOALKEEPERS (3): Nicole Barnhart (Philadelphia Independence), Jill Loyden (magicJack), Hope Solo (magicJack)
DEFENDERS (8): Rachel Buehler (Boston Breakers), Stephanie Cox (Boston Breakers), Ali Krieger (out of contract), Amy LePeilbet (Boston Breakers), Heather Mitts (Atlanta Beat), Christie Rampone (magicJack), Becky Sauerbrunn (magicJack)

There are some cute/funny videos posted for some of the players on the roster … here … just click on a player name and watch. (Some don’t have ’em – looks like it’s more of the Vets who’ve put these together.)
