I'm excited for this year's World Cup. The US Women's team is one of the most talented pool to exist, and it shows with the depth that each position has. Not to mention that many of the players can play multiple positions.
I'm excited because this is an international event where players, individuals, from all walks of life, all cultures, classes, backgrounds, etc... that are all working towards the same goal. And this is a rare sight in this current political and global climate. I think Greg sums this up in a very good way on his blog.
