My dad and I got really emotional watching the USA vs. Brazil Womens' World Cup game today.
I have never had such a reaction to a sporting event in my life!
If you didn't see it, this recap is the best... but does NOT even include:
-the USA was playing 10 on 11 for the most of the game
-The Stretcher Incident pulled in the last couple minutes before stoppage (I was SEETHING. SEETHING!!!)
-that Marta (Brazil) is the #1 ranked player in the world
- the generally INNUMERABLE times that main ref made ludicrous calls on us.
-Wambach's post game interview in which she mentioned how the game reflects American determination as a whole.
among other things.
there aren't very many cases where many come off on top on such a grand stage, when all odds are stacked against, in as dramatic or beautiful a fashion.
