WWC 2015: Let's Get Ready for the World Cup! (Not the One You're Thinking)

Faster Ones at related • 0 views
Okay, so, I get an email this weekend letting me know that, as of June 6, we are officially one year out until all the powerhouses of women's football congregate on some artificial pitch somewhere in icy Canada. There are even countdown clocks. God! There's even an on-sale date for tickets, with fancy "passport" deals that look rather neat!

This is Sara Daebritz. She scored, too, by the way.
Well. Like me, you may have been preparing for the second edition of penalty shots in the U-17 Women's World Cup quarterfinal round (France put away Nigeria yesterday, courtesy of this Most Cruel Way to Lose a Game Ever), but no--Rebecca Knaack made certain there would be none of that, Knaack-ing one past the Brazilian keeper to ensure the Germans onward progression into the semis, where the North Koreans await (Canada cries again and again) their match next Tuesday, 9 October.

Unstoppable? Yes.The Nigerians gave the U.S. defense a run for their money today. During their semifinal match, the Super Falcons caught the American defense looking fragile and undisciplined quite a few times, but just couldn't capitalize (this may have something to do with the serious amount of dancing they do in the tunnel prematch, but no, okay, I can't prove that).

This video is really all you need until I can finish my 18-part series on this night. A synopsis: The first half was boring as hell. All of us were wet in ways we didn't want to be--layers deep with wetness. The Germans looked bored. The Americans? All cocky swagger, per usual. (Lest they never forget the name Dzsenifer Marozsan.

Hi! I'm Ricarda!
Prediction confirmed: Germany versus China was a great game, although my Venus came on and off the pitch far too quick, courtesy of a good limp that she picked up in short time in the game. That said, her departure made way for Ricarda Kiessling, who scored an equalizer in extra time, and thank heavens for that, since the Germans were robbed repeatedly by the referee, who missed two handballs in the box.

Now, my queue of matches to watch on ESPN3 is growing by the day, but let me comment anyway on things I have yet to see. Mexico scores first for North America, and so happy to see that, since I sorta predicted they would, because--hey--not every team attends a World Cup tournament just to sing and dance.

I like to watch Germans practice, I guess. Germans practice hard! Anyhoo, I'm also happy to report that, as she ages, Anja is, indeed, becoming more attractive than Sonja Fuss.

It may come as a surprise to you after watching, let's say, 40 seconds of this clip that she does not run away screaming.

Back in the day, though, she appeared to be a little more extroverted.

Love her.
