[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Hooray for the U.S. women’s soccer team!
The date was the 5th of July; the stadium was in Vancouver, Canada.
[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]But all the wild and wonderful red, white and blue attire in the crowd made it look like the 4th of July on Main Street USA. The fireworks were the quick-strike goals from the U.S. women.
Japan was never in the game. America’s 5-2 victory was an all-too-rare moment when our country was united.
Now everyone will want to bask in their glory. They’ll be in commercials, invited to the White House, Congress, and parades with mayors and governors. But the women deserve the honors, not the elected officials.
How fitting that a montage after the game showed the U.S. team as a Canadian band sang a classic rock song. The group was The Guess Who, but the song’s title said it all: American Woman.
Way to make us proud, ladies.
