But Jack Wangler's vertical improved 5 inches!
|11 hours 31 min ago||Yes they do||
Tigers have become the Indians under Ausmus and DD.
|11 hours 33 min ago||Is Federov related to Lindstrom?||
They should be together in the rafters of the Joe.
|21 hours 30 min ago||What no Browns updates?!||
It's Cleveland, we know how it will turn out anyway.
|21 hours 43 min ago||This hurts||
Too young for a man who could go across the middle and battle Butkus. A better man off the field who was a legendary HOFer on the field.

This reminded me of that classic comedy. Good stuff!!
|2 days 11 min ago||Best finish of the tournament||
|2 days 30 min ago||Apparently in women's soccer||
You can get medical attention on the field while play is going on...
|2 days 52 min ago||They are tougher than their men||
On another note the turf looks very thin and bouncy
|2 days 1 hour ago||Still can't believe the AR let that first PK stand||
Even a high school referee linesman would have been able to make that call correctly
|2 days 1 hour ago||Don't see either offense scoring on USA||
Can't see us not scoring at least two
|2 days 1 hour ago||Get men referees||
Call me a pig but this is a mockery of the game
|2 days 1 hour ago||Really?||
This is a joke
|2 days 1 hour ago||Dumb push||

Should have stuck with 2007 MSU but I'm in now
|2 days 1 hour ago||What channel?when?||
Northwestern 48 MSU 41 from 2007 on big ten network now.
|2 days 6 hours ago||It's always interesting to see relative player ratings||
Here's my unrequested analysis:
I think the two best all around players are Rapinoe and Johnston and it is not even close. A
Lloyd would win my bronze medal as she has had bouts of greatness but also fits of really questionable play. These top three have field vision and toughness on the ball that is unrivaled. A-
Solo could be up there but hasn't been really tested much after the Australia game. Showed good leadership yesterday. Made some technical errors but didn't pay for it. A-
The other one who has impressed me has been Brian and not just yesterday. She and Johnston are future captains. A-
Yesterday, I think the others with the exception of Morgan and the subs, were solid B/ B+. They made a good Germany team look bad for most of the game. Many of these role players seem to be improving each game after coming in looking fundamentally weak.
Morgan: I know I am not in the majority, and yes I think she is very cute, but her play borders on unacceptable for the USA's top striker. When she is healthy, she is a wonderful player, but her play almost cost us in the first half yesterday. LeRoux or ROdriguez in there would have resulted in at least one goal. A very fortunate lack of red card and blown PK helped smoothover this coaching mistake IMO. C
Ellis: Yesterday was the I told you so formation game. Before it was the I told you so Wambach has no business playing more than 15 minutes game. She may win this in spite of herself. C -

USA have been clearly the better team in all aspects and controlled much more of the game.
|2 days 20 hours ago||Abby was good playing keep away at the end||
The second goal was pretty and had nothing to do with either forward though. Would like to see Abby have one last golden moment and then retire from national team play.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Morgan's left was woeful today too||
One clear breakaway and two clear opportunities from her left all wasted by really poor efforts never looking up, shooting when she should have passed, and simply choking on a beautiful pass that resulted in a breakaway.
|2 days 23 hours ago||Predictions are for gypsies lol||
I just like to see the rules called correctly for the sports sake.
|2 days 23 hours ago||I'm on some reffing blogs now||
One had a vine with a better angle and it was a very close call but if you had a gun to my head I would say it was just outline.
|2 days 23 hours ago||Anyone see a good replay angle of Morgan's pk foul||
Still can't tell
|3 days 1 min ago||Never for a goal per se||
Unless there was some unusual delay
|3 days 6 min ago||That's it!||
|3 days 9 min ago||Scoreless streak over 500 minutes||
Unbelievable at any level

Stumbling rumbling and bumbling
|3 days 14 min ago||Morgan watch Lloyd||
That is how you do it
|3 days 15 min ago||Yeah!!!||
|3 days 18 min ago||Going completely defensive||
