We're not sure if it was visible on the broadcast, but several U.S. players got tattoos for the Japan match. No, not real ones. No one is trying to catch up to Natasha Kai, but Heather Mitts and Carli Lloyd did get some pretty sweet traditional Chinese artwork for the game, the press-on kind. Hmmmm....And Carli scored a world-class goal and Heather almost scored not once, but twice, getting denied by the Japanese goalkeeper on a full dive and almost knocking the ball in while colliding with the 'keeper on a semi-breakaway slide. Lloyd got a dragon and Mitts had a dragon and a tiger interlocked. Pretty cool. Hope Solo and Amy Rodriguez had Chinese characters are on their forearms. While we are on the subject, Shannon Boxx has a real tattoo of the Olympic rings on her ankle. She and her sister, a 1996 Olympic gold medalist in softball, both got identical ones.
