world cup 2011

three things i loved about this year’s world cup.

1. marta scoring the second goal against the us in the quarter finals. this is a crappy video, but the goal was awesome. in general i thought this game kind of sucked. brazil played cynically, as they call it – excessively trying to draw fouls, lots of diving and acting. the us wasn’t all that convincing in this one either. their first goal was due to an error by the brazilian defense – they actually scored on themselves. their second goal was pretty¬†phenomenal however.¬†and to top it all off, horrendous calls by the referee. just wretched.
