Then again, when people write songs to you, it's probably a sign you made it.

Last night (July 20) on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart, he paid tribute to the US Women's National World Cup team in a way that is symbolic of his show. I couldn't find a segment video, so you'll have to go to the full episode and then slide over to 11:25 where the segment begins. Enjoy.

My friend and I bought customized Rapinoe kits from USSoccerStore.com. They're slick. Maybe we can wear them if this pulls through: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/soccer-football/news/article.cfm?c_id=86&objectid=10740484

Today



Weird to see Sophie, Megan, and Christen Press on the same team.

Keelin scored for Boston today in a losing cause.

Megan Rapinoe, I went to the casino / and placed my bets on youuuuu, the song said, to win the World Cup, because / I think that you deserve to and I think it'd make you happy and the rest of the team tooooo ......

Well, the song was not great, but this is another nice article about Megan from CBSSports:

Good article, thanks for sharing. According to the Oregonian Sports page she will be featured in an interview on Wednesday in their series about Title IX. The series started this morning with a very interesting interview with Teri Mariani of Portland State.

USA - Japan 4:1

Pretty much a beat down in a game where both sides used the full complement of 6 subs.

USA ended the game in a 3-4-3 and scored out of it.

The Olympics will be played a lot tighter, but this was a good result.

Title IX 40 Years Later -- Megan Rapinoe

Post by DoubleDipper on Wed Jun 20, 2012 2:59 pm

A few years later I was really fortunate to go to the University of Portland, where support for soccer is incredible. After we won the national championship my freshman year in 2005, we had a ticker-tape parade in downtown Portland. I couldn't believe how many people were there.
I was thinking when I read that, "it's a good thing there was no PilotNation.net back in 2005, instead of being downtown, we PN Trolls would probably have been sitting at our desks posting about our favorite beer."
We've got to figure out how to create sustainable U.S. professional women's leagues. That's the next step. It's a big one, but I believe it's something that can happen in my lifetime.
Amen! The sooner the better.

Big difference from the first article in the series.

I was afraid the series was going to be a Debby Downer on the struggles.

Love the picture of her as a kid. You mean the Blonde isn't Natural?
