Congrats to the USWNT. Nice results on these solid warm-ups to the Olympics. Here's hoping the run undefeated on their trip to gold. It's not the World Cup, but not often does a team get to vindicate itself practically on the same grounds it was tossed a few months ago.

Nice job by the Canucks. Did I see that right? Did DeRo hit for 2 and tack on 2 assists? That dude is mad quality. Shame they did not show SVG's lone goal.

Get ready for a "shoot 'em up" showdown today, as there appears to be no word in Ducth for "defense" and the Russians can counter with the best of them. Wide open, jaw dropping goal fest is what I forecast, as the one of the best Euros keeps on keepin' on.

There is plenty of footy on the tube today. I LOVE IT!!

Oh and before I forget...here's the obligatory finger in the eye of the blog purists: FIRST!!

Looks like MLS and Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank are interested in each other:

Well color me wrong again!! (just don't color me orange) I hope the bookies don't pay attention to me. The Oranje are gone as Russia outplayed, outcoached and outhustled them in a late yet well deserved win. Good for Russia, they came to play and were not scared of anybody. Shame on that Dutch defense, as was suspected - they showed no quality at this level of the tournament.

So was it just me or did Hiddink pull one over on Van Basten? Russia successfully nutralized the Dutch threats and those quick subs by VB seemed rushed and too much of a reaction. Yes the Russians were killing them all over the park, but burning up your subs like that never seems like good managing/coaching to me.

Also, my Insider brothers and sisters, I would like to know what your take is on resting starters in a tournament. Is it worth the hype that it has been made out to be? Or is it self destructive? Does it bring rust into the side? I'm just asking because all of the sides that had the chance to rest their starters did not have their best games in the quarters, and the guys who did not have that opportunity to do so have been the sharper (and winners) so far. What's your take?

well, that makes the 2nd place teams 3 for 3 now. And that makes me very nervous about tomorrow. Come on SPAIN!

In other news Toronto 0 KC 0! Another perfect result for DCU. I'm glad I don't have to listen to Arena's color commentary for every game. He has the most grating voice in the world! Even worse than Tommy Smyth.

Was Doe on the bench for Liberia against Senegal? He does not appear to have gotten onto the pitch, from the match report at the FIFA site.
