You're welcome. But really, would it make the win less enjoyable or her rejection of everything that came her way less admirable if they had sprung her from the Kirkland jail on a charge of farting in the general direction of the police and painting a Confederate flag on the pig at Pike Place Market?

Those would both make it more enjoyable.

More seriously, yes, it would be less fun if the details were nastier and team policy complacent. Now, I'm not worried about it.

Opps, tomorrow 1900, 3rd place game today. Not sure which site steered me wrong or if I misread.

2 goals in the first 5 minutes!!! 5 goals, scoring in each of the last 4 games, 2 assists leading to a hand (foot? head?) in the last 7 scores. Wow.

Hat trick by Lloyd at 16 minutes, from midfield!!! 4-0, #3 on the volley by Lauren Holiday was maybe the prettiest. Wow.

MVP Carli Lloyd finishes with 6 goals and 3 assists in 7 games. Nice.

Down 1-0 in the 2nd half,

Watch: Lewandowski destroys Wolfsburg with 5 goals in 9 minutes

The last one is the prettiest.

I heard advice on NPR yesterday that no one should take a smart phone or any other device to Russia because it will likely be hacked and passwords stolen.
I can't imagine anyone leaving their devices behind.

People would have a bunch of reasons not to, including keeping up with the games they're not attending.

Techies, is it that easy for someone to hack a phone that the owner still has possession of?

Dunno, but if you can afford to go to Russia for a soccer tournament, you can probably afford to pick up a cheap-but-still-smartish phone and pay as you go service. International use of US phones can get expensive sometimes anyway.

Iceland just held Argentina to a 1-1 tie despite blistering and unrelenting 2nd half attacks by Messi and Argentina, Iceland! The parties there must be epic. Croatia is leading the group after beating Nigeria.

Brasil just scored one of the prettiest goals ever at about 20:00 to make it 1-0 vs. Switzerland.

Edit: Swiss equalizer at 50:00. Could another giant be brought low?

Almost happened again. England just barely avoided a 1-1 tie with a goal in injury time.
