Soccer, Wimbledon style!

The U.S. is playing Brazil in the Confederations Cup final, and you are at Wimbledon...what's a sportswriting girl to do??? Answer: Head into town and look for a pub.

That's what I did yesterday, and found a small collection of US fans watching the match at a place called The Common Room. Brad Gilbert was in there, watching intently.

Couldn't believe my eyes when the US led 2-0...and then Brazil became Brazil...still, no shame in beating Egypt and Spain and losing to Brazil in a hard-fought final. Landon Donovan, Tim Howard, Clint Dempsey, Oguchi Onyewu, Jay DeMerit looked like big-time players all week...entire team surely gained confidence heading into runup to World Cup...now, they have to QUALIFY!

OK, back to yellow fuzzy balls...Roger Federer and Serena Williams on court.

Yours in Soccer,

Michelle
