US WNT ties North Korea, 2-2
We woke up this morning to watch the US Women's National Team open up thier World Cup bid against North Korea. I am not an avid fan of women's soccer even though every time I watch it I walk away impressed. Today was no exception. The US team is ranked number 1 in the world and the North Koreans are number 5 . The game ended in a 2-2 draw with both teams coming back from 1 goal deficits at some point in the game. It was an exciting match. Both keepers made mistakes due to heavy rain and play was a little more sloppy than I would have expected. Most likely though, the sloppy play was also weather related.
Our next game is against Sweden on Friday morning at 4 AM CST. Set your alarm.
To clarify: We did not wake up at 4 AM this morning. We taped it and watched it at 6 AM. So we are semi-hardcore fans...
