    USA trails Canada 3-2 in the 72nd minutes...the GREAT Christien Sinclair with a hat-trick....Hope Solo has been awful....as has the marking by the back four on Sinclair...you don't leave a goal scoreer of her magnitude unmarked on two of the three goals she has scored liek we have......

    Plenty of time left....

    Pretty questionable hand ball there maybe?

    The two goals by Rapinoe were pretty amazing.

    Wamback misses a chance at an open net.

    Yeah that 3rd goal came gift wrapped from the refs. Not that I'm complaining.

    USA has played with their hair on fore the last five minutes or so....going to OT....

    OT and possibly a shootout favors the USA in my opinion....

    USA back four and Solo have got to hold their mettle...for us to win this one...neither have had great days....

    Solo has shown a knack stopping PKs in shootouts so that favors us....

    Yep, I feel bad for Canada, they probably should've won in regulation. Oh well, bring on Japan.

    I don't feel bad for them at all....its happend to us before....a win is a win and I wil take it....

    And frankly that shoulder by Canadian to the Americans' head at the end should have been a straight red and a a sending off...so they got lucky on that call....

    I'm exhausted after watching that game.

    Does anyone else wish Brandy Chastain would develop a serious case of laryngitis before the gold medal match? I've never heard worse commentary.

    She is a soccer wonk with no personality....she knows the game inside and out....but yeah sometimes she just needs to take a break and let the game sell itself...

    Great game indeed...
