Oh gosh. For a second I thought I got a really late delivered message about Lost. One of my favorite shows back in the day. Every episode was good besides that Jack episode from season three with the tattoo, btw.
The loss? I can’t even be mad about it. I had to witness Lyon get knocked out of CL twice last year as well as their first league loss in a ridiculous number of games. Sweden’s loss in the Euros killed me. Add in that Reign losing streak and you should get what I mean.Those hurt way worse than this to me.
Our win streak was helped out by a lot of easy teams. It didn’t mean that much to me. It had to end eventually. It’s a little more exciting to both win and lose anyway. The uncertainty of a result should be in a sport. I used to be so nervous when we played Sweden. They were always big rivals who could match us physically and score on us but it is like we as fans forgot that since WC group play in 2011. Memo: It is always scary to play Sweden.
Lotta is a top three favorite player of mine. She is terrific despite a run of disappointing refs…I mean results in 2013. Recently she has a cold and is coming back from leg injuries. She pulled out a win for her team. I wish it didn’t come at our expense, but she really was due a good day. Fischer too for that matter. Sweden has some great players.
Tom was still experimenting with lineups at Algarve. I think other players on the pitch would have won both games, but since the obvious lineups weren’t out there and weird ones were he wasn’t using this tourney to only win games.
