Default Women's World Cup Soccer

My fellow Americans:

We have something to cheer about from the world of futbol. The Women's National Team overcame a scrappy French Resistance to win 3-1 in the semifinals.

The U.S. women have a chance to win their first World Cup since 1999 -- those were the good ol' days when Bill Clinton was president, GDP growth was like 5 zillion percent per week and unemployment was negative 16% or something! And as Dave Barry says, "I'm not making this up," the federal government was in surplus (for my Dem friends) -- ehem, when they face Japan (Yea!) in the finals after they beat Sweden 3-1.

Here's to you, ladies! Yee-haw!
