These women are on a roll

Posted on: September 26, 2007

Hey Everyone,

Have you checked out the US Women’s National Team during World Cup action in China? The US Women have made it all the way to the semi-final round where they now face Brazil. Former U.S. captain and Girl Talk supporter Julie Foudy, now a commentator for ESPN, will bring the game to you live tomorrow at 8 a.m. on ESPN2.

When these two teams met three months ago, the US won 2-0. The Americans also prevailed in their two previous Women’s World Cup meeting; however, and I’m sure you saw this all over the news today, head coach Greg Ryan has replaced unbeaten rookie goalkeeper Hope Solo with veteran Briana Scurry.. Scurry started every game but one at the 1995, 1999 and 2003 World Cups and played every minute at the Athens Olympics, where the team won gold.

Regardless of the outcome in tomorrow’s match, the accomplishments and dedication of these female athletes is something to admire and celebrate. With the recent 35th anniversary of Title IX, these talented women exemplify how far women and sports have come, but there is always still more work to be done.

That’s all for now,
