Women's World Cup at 7:00 ET

The top two squads, USA - Germany, go at it in semi-finals. Hope Solo has to be her stellar self for the USA to win this match. Germany's keeper is no slouch but reminds me of Frau Blucher.

Feel free to discuss your favorite Mel Brooks characters if you don't know or care about the USWMT.

Germany will score at least one. If we can hold them to that one, we're at least going to extra time IMO and who knows from there. But if they score more than one, we're probably fucked. What's gotten us by in the first few matches isn't going to get us by Germany. They're smart, can play a couple different styles and they will make us pay for giving away possession too easily.

4-3-3 in name only. Probably going to play closer to a 4-1-4-1 with Brian sitting in front of the defensive line and Rapinoe and Heath responsible for tracking back on the wings.

Good move in that Ellis recognized need for a dedicated d mid. Bad in that she's breaking out a new formation in a semi. This does, at least, seem to get players into the spaces where they're most comfortable

DId Fox straight up just steal everything about WC coverage from ESPN?  Same set, laid back with couches and stuff.  A different analyst from every country ala Ballack, Ruud Gullit, etc.  Where's Ian Darke?

I don't see the US scoring on anything other than a set piece or counter. We're not going to get much build up because Germany is just forcing it back to our defense and they're just hoofing it.
