A few things I didn’t want to slip past…
While most of us were pulling our tired bodies out of bed this morning, the US WNT was continuing their tour of South Korea, defeating the Netherlands 2-0 with goals from Lindsay Tarpley and Cat Whitehill, putting the ladies through to Saturday’s Peace Queen Cup Final. If the last string of World Cup tune-up matches is any indication, the better half of our National team picture is looking like a favorite for 2007.
And if anybody missed the Champion’s League clash between Arsenal and CSKA Moscow yesterday, WOW. No mystery I love Henry and the boys - some apparently don’t - but I can’t remember a game, in any sport, i enjoyed as much as that.
I mentioned earlier how I needed to watch some European ball after the boredom of last week’s MLS playoffs, and it seemed my wish was granted. FInal score: 0-0. Talk to me next week, but right now I don’t even care how many chances the north Londoner’s missed, or how the draw places them in jeopardy of not making it through to the knock-out stage of the tournament; the midfield play and one-touch passing at break neck speeds was the stuff dreams are made of… not to mention the goal tending and sweeping that held the high-octane Arsenal scoreless. Champion’s League indeed.
