I’m not a huge soccer fan, but the US Women’s win over Brazil was breathtaking. Competing a player down for half the game, overcoming a couple of questionable ref calls that cost them a couple goals, and then scoring with a minute to go was amazing. What a pass from Megan Rapinoe to Abby Wombach! That was one of the most clutch plays I’ve ever seen, right there with Gibson in the World Series and Eruzione in the Olympics. Maybe not the same impact, but just as clutch. They won me over. I know what I’m doing Wednesday at 11:30, watching the US in the semis.
