I feel like I should be more nervous this morning. Are you?
The USWNT is the juggernaut and the Dutch are the upstart team that replaced the usual suspects (Germany, are you listening?) in the final. So will the upstart challenge the juggernaut?
I’m hoping to see more from Rose Lavelle today. Check out her nutmeg in the video below. She was Julie Foudy’s pick as the breakthrough player in this World Cup. (Sir Hits A Lot picked Mallory Pugh- but maybe he was getting a little ahead of himself?!?)
Whatever happens later this morning, I am going to miss having the Women’s World Cup in my life.
After today it’s back to:
- Baseball (Phillies, c’mon) and
- Politics (time to apply the lessons of The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning to the Democratic primary contenders, I’m thinking — so sorry, Tulsi), and
- He whose name shall remain unmentioned.
So, let’s go, USWNT, and later today, we’ll get back to the rest of our lives…
