Goooooooooooal

Turn on your TV right now. Right now. (Well, given your timezone and when you’re reading this.) But even if you’re reading this later you can get excited because women’s Olympic soccer is happening. While the opening ceremonies aren’t until Friday, the Olympics are very much on. The women started playing today and it is a wonderful thing. Women’s soccer always rises to the occasion when given the world stage and I have no doubt the players will do the same in London. I won’t even pretend I’m not an unapologetic homer when it comes to my soccer. Team USA, all the way. So in honor of the first day of play, here’s a very special Wednesday edition of Tank Top Tuesday for some of the wonderful women of the U.S. National Women’s Team.

Megan Rapinoe

Alex Morgan

Sydney Leroux

Heather Mitts

Tobin Heath

Amy LePeilbet

Shannon Boxx

Carli Lloyd

Abby Wambach

Christie Rampone

Hope Solo

USA! USA! USA! And, you know, have a great Olympics rest of the world, too.

GAH I didn't know this was happening until about 15 min ago. So sad... But we're winning, so I guess I can't be TOO disappointed. :P

Saliva glands working into over time. I may be old but I still know what a fine woman looks like. I could also pick out a maybe for my single lesbian daughter. I could do that. Yeah that's what I'm doing, good mom, looking for daughter, sure!

I can't quite make out what Megan's bicep tattoo says. Help!

I was at the match in Glasgow this evening. I missed most of the game because I was entirely too focused on Abby Wambach.

Danie said...

@riotgirrrl, you were there. I am jealous. :)

Just watched the replay! Go USA!~ However I still think that Hope dashed out too early a lot of times... could be big mistake but she's managed to get the balls so far.. Awesome game by USA. (Not to mention HOT HOT HOT!)

Voo said...

After serious consideration, I must say that Alex is the cutest.

Hell yeah USWNT! I love the forwards and middies but the defensive line is so sexy and a bunch of BAMFs (Amy LePeilbet being my favorite)
Also surprised no Kelley O'Hara :p Fantastic post none the less :D
