    I root for my country. Whether I agree with their politics or not.

    Yes and I do too but when this team exhibits this type of behavior , I hope they lose every match. How can you support this embarrassing display ? It’s sickening and I don’t think I am in the minority here.

    Interesting that the humongous country host Japan has 631 athletes at the games while the USA has a mere 613.

    US Women's Soccer Team To Boycott Scoring Goals Until Racism Is Defeated

    "Yeah, we didn't score any goals against Sweden last night, but that was totally on purpose," said star player and beloved activist Megan Rapinoe. "This isn't the time to score goals—when America is still racist. We totally could have beaten Sweden but we decided as a team that no goals will be scored until complete equality has been achieved in America. Also, we demand a hefty raise."

    Third goal on on own goal but Carli Lloyd should get an assist with the high pressure cross. Officers Minogue and O'Leary may be sent to negotiate

    The US Women’s National Soccer team seems to be our most consistent winning international team. They represent our country with all its blessings and all its warts. They almost single handedly built women’s soccer into a collegiate and professional sport. The performance against Sweden and even New Zealand was subpar. When an individual puts on the Stars and Stripes to represent our great country i root for them and always will irrespective of who they vote for, who they choose to sleep with or who they worship. Go Team USA

    Green font = sarcasm.

    It was a joke. You know....can't bring up politics.....but then you do......;)

    My initial post was from the Babylon Bee - also known for it's sarcasm.

    Seems like we could always use more humour here.

    And I feel the way you do too, FWIW......and am on record as such.

    Enjoy your evening! :emoji_beers:
