Super Sunday

The WNT Blog will not be posting on Sunday, Feb. 1, due to the day of gluttony and couch surfing known as Super Bowl Sunday. It also happens to be an off day from training for the U.S. WNT after some hard scrimmages today. Swedish head coach Pia Sundhage may not know much about the Super Bowl, but she knows it would be a good idea to let the players watch it...and watch it they will. Abby Wambach is hosting a Super Bowl party for the team at her place and surely there will be food, fun and laughs for all. But certainly no wagering. Certainly. The consensus from the players is that the Pittsburgh Steelers will win football's ultimate prize, but many would like to see the underdog Cardinals pull it out. It's a tough game to watch for the several Philadelphia Eagles fans on the team. The Cardinals beat the Eagles in the conference title game and off course the Steelers are Pennsylvania's other team. Still, all the players are hoping for a competitive contest...and a whole bunch of funny commercials.
