Coach Mom & I attended the USWNT game against Brazil last Saturday and found that our "Row Y" seats were in the front row. That's our flag hanging behind Kristine Lilly who scored her fabulous free kick goal right in front of us. (The two moron men who knew nothing about soccer thought the Brazil goalie "should have had that one". Watch the video, below, and see how wrong they were.) Wambach's goal was also a beauty. The team looks very strong. Those gold uniforms weren't as bad as I thought they'd be. But they're not a US uniform. Red, white, and blue, people.

Lilly, in her record 327th international game, scored her 123rd goal for the national team. The 35-year-old player in her 20th year on the squad sent a left-footed free kick from the corner of the box that soared into the far upper corner of the net over goalkeeper Andrea. The shot almost certainly would have beaten any male keeper, too.
