soccer for life

you know that terrifying feeling while watching soccer

when your favorite team is leading 1:0 and it’s like 2 minutes until the whistle. the opposite team is on a fucking roll, pressing hard, shooting from left to right. and your heart is just pounding, you’re counting the seconds till the game ends and hoping they won’t score. but when that final whistle blows…it’s just the best fucking feeling in the world.

So let’s recap:

  • Julie Ertz scored twice within ten minutes.
  • Kelley O'Hara got her 100th cap
  • Sofia Huerta got her first internal cap AND her first assist
  • Alex Morgan the Love of My Life had a beautiful goal (set up by Huerta)
  • We got to see Morgan and Press play together??

The only thing that would have made it better was if Kelley had played the whole game and Christen had gotten a goal
