    Is Everyone Going to be Rooting for TEAM USA in the World Cup Finals Sunday?? -- PICS

    Don't know if many here have been following the Women's World Cup playoffs this year, but TEAM USA pulled off a major upset in the quarterfinals, upsetting defending champs Brazil. If the semi-finals, they defeated France 3-1. Both were extremely exciting games, and very closely fought.

    This Sunday they play in the finals for the World Cup Soccer Championship against Japan. This is the first time that TEAM USA has made it back to the finals since winning it all back in 1999. The Japanese have never been past the quarterfinals before, but are playing with huge patriotism and vigor in an effort to lift the spirits of their countrymen after the devastation caused by the 3 disasters that have befallen their country earlier this year. Both teams are described as having tremendous desire to win the championship. If TEAM USA wins, it will be the USA's third championship in history, while the Japanese have never won it.

    Here is a photo of the incredible women of TEAM USA:





    If there is any way that you can watch ESPN Sunday and cheer for them ( even if you have to go to a sports bar ), I think you will be in for one truly historic game. A battle between two teams that both want the championship very badly. These women are simply incredible athletes to behold in action playing on the field.

    5' 11" Abby Wambach is the star of the American team. Checkout this incredible header that she put in for a goal:

    Game is about to start in a few minutes. The ESPN coverage of this championship has been outstanding. The tension is incredible.

    Go TEAM USA!




    OMG, every single member of TEAM USA actually SANG the US national anthem in the opening ceremony. You don't see that in professional sporting events.

    Shoot, 9 shots on goal, and not a single point for Team USA! We should have had at least two by now.

    The Americans are definitely outplaying the Japanese so far. They are causing all kinds of problems for the Japanese that I did not see either the Germans or the Swedes cause them. This has been their sharpest game so far, other than not finishing and getting the goals.

    Bad news, though, is that that score is 0 - 0 at halftime.

    Good news, though, is that Team USA has been very strong in the 2nd half of their games. They finished strong against both Brazil and France with late goals.

    I just cannot believe what a physical game this women's soccer is. There is not an ounce of fat on any of the players.

    It has got to be the hardest sport to compete in.

    So far, an exciting game, but I would prefer that we were up by 5 or more.

    I'd be happy with half our shoots making it. Stressful.
