Watching the U.S. women's WC team blow a 1-0 late in regulation and then a 2-1 lead very, very late in the extra time it's become obvious that Hope Solo no longer has it. She gagged late, and then was out-played in the penalty kick session to help send the Americans home in shame. The island nation of Japan has won the women's World's Cup.
If you're not first, you're last. Second place is the first one to lose.
The U.S. team is in denial, holding on to its glorious 2008 gold medal win led by their good-looking goalie that they can no longer admit they need to dump Han Solo's daughter in favor of Briana Scurry.
