the worldwide footballing competition (in which a true world champion is determined unlike in the NFL or NBA) kicked off on Sunday, and the USA team is about to begin their first match of the tourney in a few minutes. led by the world's best goalkeeper Hope Solo, Team USA is completely devoid of diversity (as you can see here). yet despite not having a single "real afflete" on the roster, the Yanks' women side is the clear favorite (and world #1-ranked) to bring home the trophy. i'm a big fan of Solo, and the jew-run ESPN talking heads are still talking about Solo's statement in 2007. of course, they all insist she was wrong ... but in fact, she was absolutely correct and has proven it since. anyway, moving on! Sweden easily handled Columbia in the day's earlier match, though Sweden blew several easy scoring opportunities. is anyone else interested in this tournament?
