I have been watching just a little of the tourney.

Sweden vs Netherlands match-
I was a little disappointed the the Dutch girls missed some pretty good chances late in the 2nd half. They seemed to bit sleep walking a bit then as the clock got closer to the end of regulation they seemed to turn it up a couple of notches and were making a little more contact.

It made me chuckle that players from both teams would go down after minimal contact and have the biggest look of surprise and pain while they looked for the ref to blow her whistle and award a foul. If they didn't get it their look of disbelief was kind of humorous. Once play continued, the limping magically disappeared. Oh well even the girls can exaggerate injures. (I won't call it flopping.)

There sure were a lot of blondes on the pitch. Groenen's goal was very impressive.

I must admit I was hoping for rain. Pretty decent match with some key saves by both keepers. I generally believe that there is far less flopping and faking in the women's game.

The American girls I don't think will have a problem with the Dutch in the finals. I could be wrong, the interesting thing about soccer is you can be completely outplayed and get a lucky call in the box or take advantage of your limited chances and win.

The Americans got a huge break from the VAR review yesterday. The English girl was offside but not by much.

I thought that the English were going to be the Americans biggest challenge. It was a great game.

USA women did it. Again. Love
They defeated the 2nd, 3rd and 4th place teams. Plus the home team French in what many thought was a big/rowdy/competitive as the finals.

Can you imagine the sort of team the United States could field if the men who currently go into football and basketball went into soccer instead? Drool

Despite her amazing accomplishments in this tournament, Megan Rapinoe reminds me of Admiral Holdo. I wish that were a compliment.

Lest anyone think I'm being a Grinch again, Congratulations Team USA. You dominated the field like no team in tournament history. You totally deserve every bit of glory coming to you.

Zero2Cool (18-Oct) : Yeah, Aikman was saying Mahomes won't be running due to his ankle injury. Then plays later, QB sneak, and gets hit awkward. Unlucky.
Dulak (18-Oct) : If you guys watched the game; I think the announcers were talking about how he hurt his ankle and needs to be careful with it and then like a couple plays later he does a QB sneak (which is often pret

FLORIDA PACKER88 (16-Oct) : Kupp is most likely off limits, but Cooks or Woods with some decent contracts might allow them to recoup a 2nd or 3rd round pick. Not sure its something we should/would do, but something to think ab
FLORIDA PACKER88 (16-Oct) : Shot in the dark here...but with the Rams dealing...wonder if one of their wideouts might be on the table to recoup a pick?

Zero2Cool (15-Oct) : Packers being down 13 and win. They've done it more than anyone in some years. Gotta look that up
Zero2Cool (15-Oct) : Packers' win on Monday night was the first time in 2019 and only the 13th time since 2010 that a team turned the ball over 3 or more times without producing a takeaway and still won the game.
gbguy20 (15-Oct) : oh you guys are referring to the refs. i forgot all about that already
Porforis (15-Oct) : Don't deserve that W... But also haven't deserved a lot of Ls. How many times have we been hosed? Not always even but it roughly evens out
