    There’s one other somewhat important game in the next 24 hours, At 4:30am EDT (5:30pm Japan time) the USWNT opens their Olympic tournament against Sweden who knocked them out of the tournament in the quarterfinals in Rio.

  2. Gruncle Bob says:

    Jim Curtin was right. Gabi IS an asshole.

  3. I watched highlights of the Mukhtar hat trick against Chicago and then the Montreal comeback against Cincinnati. Shockingly bad defending in both. Oof. Gives you a lot of extra appreciation for what we have in Philadlephia.

  4. John O'Donnell says:

    Rumors of spending on a young DP is interesting. If either of them came to be this team would have quite a bit of depth through out the lineup. Tanner looks like he’s looking at making a run at more silverware.
