In less than 10 hours the collective American sports nation will return to not caring about soccer, and or women's soccer.
But here in a few hours we will all watch when the U.S. plays Japan in the World Cup Finals at 1:45 CT. Nation's pride. Nothing else to watch. Take your pick.
And, by tomorrow, we will likely all forget any of these players unless she takes off her shirt after scoring the game-winning goal, or bites the head off a Zebra.
Sadly, that's the way it is. The trick is necessary. For a U.S. soccer player to really grab and maintain our fleeting attention they must do something beyond spectacular.
Or they can be Hope Solo.
