Thanks Detroit

Kudos also to the more than 11,000 fans who showed up on a freezing Wednesday night at Ford Field to watch the final match of the year for the U.S. women. Of course, it was 70 degrees inside Ford Field, but the fans had to drive through the snow and sludge to get there. It was a great way to end an historic year, not only with a victory - the USA's 25th shutout of the year -- but with a big and appreciative crowd. The team wishes it could have put a few more in the net, but once again great defense by the USA earned the victory. So thanks to all those who came out to make the 2008 finale a fun one and hopefully it won't be another 15 years before the WNT gets back to Detroit.

Hello! I was at that game. It was amazing. It was the first game I've been too since 2003, at Columbus Crew Stadium, back when Mia was playing. It was an early Christmas present for me! Come back soon, I don't get to go to a lot of games living in MI. Thanks to Hope Solo, Kacey White and Stephanie Cox for their autographs!! You all are amazing!

Thanks for coming to Detroit. I was one of the 11,900 people that came in the snow. Carli Lloyd played a tough game. She kept getting knocked around. Some big saves by Hope. It was good to see that level of play. The players seemed to always give their teammates options.
