Raining in Beijing

Weather has been a storyline of this Olympic women's soccer tournament and it looks like the gold medal game could continue that trend. It's raining right now in Beijing, and although it has definitely tapered off quite a bit in the afternoon, there is a 40% chance of rain at kickoff time. Still, as always, both teams have to play in it and the U.S. team had dealt with its share of adversity this year and this tournament, so a little bit of the wet stuff will likely not have a major impact on the match.

Great goal, great win and well-deserved gold! Bring on the gold medals, team! Well done, sure it was hard fought and it was tiring for all who played.

Congratulations!

CONGRATS ON THE GOLD!!!
I hope everyone sees that the new tactic of incorporating everyone in the attack is what saved the US' Olympics. Before the US' attack relied almost entirely on Wambach-and this goes to show all those who DOUBTED the US that we still are NUMBER ONE
GOOOOOOO OOSA!
