I Thought I Had Nailed It, Until...

Wow. I thought I had nailed my prediction earlier today. I predicted the United States Women would win the FIFA World Cup Final 2-1 over Japan with Abby Wambach getting the winner. And in the 104th minute, it looked like I would have it exactly right when Ms. Wambach buried a header off of a great cross from Alex Morgan to make it 2-1 over Japan.

But Japan, playing with all heart (I thought the US Women had cornered the market on heart in this World Cup), leveled the score in the 118th minute and beat the US in penalty kicks to win.

Great game. Congratulations Japan!
