So close. Everyone was talking about the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team this weekend. It was a topic of conversation at the pool, grocery store, around the neighborhood, and at work.
It was kind of neat to hear everyone talking about this team. It reminded me of other big moments in sports like Cal’s streak, Michael Phelps at the Olympics and even the 1980 Hockey team, though I think that was bigger. It was nice to hear people rally around this team at a time when conversation is usually about the debt ceiling, Casey Anthony, and extreme weather. Watching this team has been a great stress reliever…a good diversion for many.
They came close. Hopefully, many on the team will be on the team that goes to London for the Olympics.
