Unfortunately, busy real life precludes virtual

Otherwise, I'd be writing about the awesome performance of the Indianapolis Colts last Thursday night, the disappointing outing by the Bears on Sunday, the ins and outs of the upcoming college basketball season, how IU Soccer is rolling right along, and of the course the Women's World Cup.

I imagine some folks are mad that their daily sports-blather about meaningless Baseball games and unplayed NFL match-ups has been interrupted for full ESPN coverage of the Women's World Cup, but I love tuning into the early morning match-ups. The only thing I don't dig is prying myself away from a solid Norway-Canada match to go to work.

The big surprise was that North Korea was able to tie, and even to really test, the US Women's team. I think when Abby Wambach's back on the field (and the US has 11 players for a whole game), the the Americans will have nothing to worry about. Julie Foudy, quoting some bad Chinese-English translating, said it best:


The USA is one of the very best teams in Shanghai. There's nothing to worry about. But they've got to go out and get points. The game against Sweden is imperative to get a least a tie, and then they can win against Nigeria, & they should be fine.
