    Hi,

    Anybody else been watching the women's football world cup?

    24 Countries across the world and the USA have made it to the Semi-finals against England tonight at 8:00pm (BST)

    Just wondering if its a known / reported about thing in the US, cos your team are pretty awesome but I can't remember seeing any threads about it here.

    Here is a link showing the highlights of both teams last game into the Semis

    Ok - Eddie.

    I've watched Italy - Holland last sunday, they've beaten us :(:( , Holland deserved to win anyway, especially the second half there was almost no game.

    We've got the Women's Ashes Cricket Tour (England vs Australia) to enjoy now. Seven games in a variety of formats throughout July.

    It’s like watching a bunch of marbles roll around in a green box. (Just kidding...I vaguely like soccer/futbol)

    Hopefully watching this.

    I presume it is getting some press coverage in the USA for reasons I can't discuss without breaking the no politics rule on TDPRI. Hey, you've all got Google ( other internet search engines are available).

    But the Lionesses playing in Lyon the omens are all there surely!

    I have been, since I have been stuck at home after a bicycle crash without cable tv.

    Not a huge soccer fan in general, but I have always liked the Olympics so I am somewhat familiar. And my niece was a monster player until she tore up her knee.

    But I don't see this thread going to far before it violates the 'prime directive'!

    I'll be leaving work early hopefully to catch the game. I have preferred the woman's game since I coached my daughter years ago.

    Soccer is almost as boring as golf or NBA basketball.
    Wish both teams well.

    I have never had any kids that played soccer. I never played soccer. I never coached or refereed soccer.

    But I love to watch soccer. I am not sure why, but I do.

    In the US we have this tendency about not caring about the mundane regular season sports events and finally tune in when it gets serious. That is why the NFL does so well, 16 games and that is it, so each one can be a "knockout" with a loss. So the coverage has been on the periphery lately until the knockout rounds. They just started broadcasting the matches on the main FOX channel instead of some cable FOX option.

    I watched last week when the US ousted France but was biting my nails every time Henry or Diani had the ball on their feet.

    One of my favorite soccer memories was catching a game in Denver where the US men's team was hosting Costa Rica for a friendly. It ended up dropping a foot of snow during the match. It was a hoot to see the CR national team come out after half time and there was six inches of snow on the pitch! A couple came out for about two minutes and then retreated to the locker room till the second half started. US 1 - CR 0.

    We have been watching with great joy. Our team (Holland!!) will play the semi-final tomorrow night against Sweden.

    I find the women's game to be very entertaining. They play well, and without all the drama-queen stuff you get with the men. There have been some strange and dubious calls made; lucky one of them went in our favor, or we would not be here in the semi's.
