The amazing United States Women's World Cup soccer team resonates and captivates American sports landscape. For the life of me, I can't see why. No lockouts, no sex scandals, no steroid trials, no DUI arrests. Hello? Yawn.

Obviously kidding. Truth be told, I like the women's team more than our men. The men are great, but one gets the feeling, deep down inside, if a guy scored a hot goal, but the team still lost, he wouldn't care. Just how a lot of guys are wired. Women's team is not like that. Teamwork and passion to help each other win. Sports at its best.

And we're playing Japan. Good thing it isn't a team that will garner a lot of sympathy due to a tragedy. My word, was the Haitian girls orphanage team busy?
