United States, Germany Reach Women's World Cup Semifinals

United States' Abby Wambach, right, scores past England's goal keeper Rachel Brown during their quarter-final match of the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup soccer tournament at Tianjin, China

Top ranked United States and defending champion Germany have advanced to the semifinals of the Women's World Cup football (soccer) tournament in China. Both of them faced down their opponents and came out kicking. The US ladies whooped England bad, 3-0... and should be worrying the other finalists by now. The German defending champions won a very similar victory against Korea, also ending 3-0.

Now I don't know who to support! In the men's games it was quite easy... the U.S. men's soccer team just suck! But the ladies kick some serious ball! If it comes down to a U.S. /German match for the cup... our house may become a bit disturbed. N. has a thing about the German captain Birgit Prinz... I'm afraid that if I support a team that ends up beating Birgit... um, I may have to look for other living arrangements. We'll know more on September 30th I suppose.
