|Anthem Time to Start
|Another frustrating header
I am not a soccer expert as I don't even watch much on TV except for the years where the World Cup (Men and Women) and occasionally the Olympics are on. But the one thing I did notice that was seconded by my more knowledgeable colleague, David Long, is that the American forward was out of position nearly the entire game. She was almost always offsides which helped to stifle more than a few attacks.

Besides some soccer lessons, I also learned that standing up at a game is forbidden, more or less. I got poked by the woman behind me whenever I stood up. And I only stood up when the folks in front of me stood up. Very strange.
My wife, my niece and I spent the afternoon walking around downtown Ottawa as I played tour guide to them. Twas a fun day, and I did enjoy standing in front of a Supreme Court today even if it was not the right one. Great day for the USA with greater justice and equal protection for all and then a nice win to put some icing on the cake.
