    Those ladies are bad ass. Norway didn't get a sniff the whole game. Too bad we couldn't give out 4 WOTM awards.

    The back line is BETTER without Chastain. While she is very good most of the time she has moments of total loss of concentration that allows other teams to get clean breaks toward the US goal.

    There is still a bit of a lack of accurate passing but that is a small problem given the midfield's ability to win so many balls back after the pass is lost.

    With Boxx at D-mid providing early defensive presence in the center I doubt there will be many breakdowns in the center and the flanks are working so well that they delay the play enough to allow recovery when the ball does get deep and wide.

    Defense in soccer is rarely pretty BUT the US is playing beautiful D most of the time.

    Then we have Scurry to clean up any remaining mess.

    Of course, with Scurry directing them, the defense has only to play but play they do. Also it looks like the entire defense is having fun and THAT makes the play even better.

    I almost wish the offense was not so good so we could see the defense play more D. Nah!

    Joy Fawcett rocks ! she's been playing good since the tournament begins and i think her consistency is so important for the team.

    Ironically, Joy was the back line's weakest link in WC99 IMO. Granted, that was mostly because Overbeck was such a rock star in the middle.

    Heh. Unfortunately for me, Cat Reddick already has a boyfriend...

    And Rob Stone is flirting with Heather Mitts.. :)
    Did you notice they had her put her hair up after the first night when she kept flicking her head back every 3 seconds to get the hair out of her face...?

    I saw Reddick's boyfriend on that "Road Trip" show...He looked pretty big, but I could probably take him.
