Default (OT) Soccer--I know I hate this sport BUT----

And I'm gonna get in tons of trouble here but here goes anyhow (I have never backed away from possibly being the lone ranger on some topics)

I am flat out rooting for the American women's team to lose!

I have not liked their attitude throughout this whole tournament, and I think they give the world a wrong and distorted view of America!

I know I am probably alone here but that is how I feel. And I must add that I think in my 71 years this may be the FIRST time I have ever rooted for America to lose at anything!!!

Have at it!

I haven't watched one second of it. I'm not a big fan of women's sports other than the olympics anyway. Maybe I'll watch the final. When is it on? What are they doing to piss you off anyway? I'm curious.

I agree 100%, as I have stated numerous times over the years, --- but this crap is in your face whenever you watch the (so-called) news!

I don't follow it, but what I've seen out of these women, I don't particularly like. It started with some lefty virtue signalling her disdain for the US by doing a Kaepernick. Nothing says I'm proud to represent my country like taking a knee for the anthem. Then, they beat the bejusus out of someone. Tailand? Not sure, but in my book you don't celebrate off the hook while you're pummeling some overmatched team. Show some freakin dignity. So now it appears they were taunting the Brits as well. Have some class ladies.

So, yea, I hope the Dutch girls thrash the shit out of them, and taunt them mercilessly. That's definitely a first for me too.

They sound just like wide receiver divas to me. Men soccer players act like jerks too. Maybe we have a double standard when it comes to women's sports and expect them to act like ladies? Either way I'm going to tune in to watch this crew on Sunday now.

I don't know about acting like ladies. But, I do expect them to win and lose with some class, and respect their opponents.
