Don’t Call it a Blogback…

We’ve been here for years…Well, part of one year. But suffice it to say, the Women’s National Team Blog is back.

Last time you heard from us, we were in China. In five days, we head to China again. It seems the WNT is in China so often, the team could apply for dual citizenship, but since we have no desire to see Abby Wambach playing next to Han Duan, we’ll table that idea for now. The WNT Blog left off at the end of the 2007 Women’s World Cup, but now picks back up in a new year and with a new goal…the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The USA will have to qualify for the Olympics in April in Mexico, but for now, the focus is on the 2008 Four Nations Tournament where the USA will face challenging games against Canada, Finland and China in head coach Pia Sundhage’s first matches at the helm.

As always, we’ll be reporting (almost) daily on the goings on with the U.S. women, fun facts, wacky experiences, amusing anecdotes and perhaps even some legitimate news. While the USA did not get the ultimate result they wanted at the Women’s World Cup, the great thing about soccer (and sports) is that there is always another game, a new challenge, a new year and the next world championship. So with the sting of defeat sparking the fuel of motivation…here we go.
