After having a huge edge in play during the first half, the USA came under pressure to start the second half of its Women's World Cup semifinal against Germany in Montreal. The game changed in the 59th minute when Germany was awarded a penalty kick, but Celia Sasic missed wide, ending Germany's streak of having converted every penalty kick -- 17 in all -- it's taken at the Women's World Cup.

Seattle's love affair with the Open Cup turns sour
The controversy surrounding Clint Dempsey and his trashing of referee Daniel Radford's notebook is quite ridiculous. Ridiculous because there should be no controversy. We know, we saw (and now we've seen it repeatedly) what Dempsey did. We know what U.S. Federation regulations say about that sort of thing -- it is clearly considered, as it should be, an assault on the referee, and the mandated punishment is a six-game suspension.

"Due to their current commitments in Zurich, the FIFA President and the FIFA Secretary General will remain at the FIFA Headquarters."

-- FIFA statement that its president, Sepp Blatter, and secretary general, Jerome Valcke, will not travel to Canada for Sunday's Women's World Cup final. Joao Havelange, Blatter's predecessor, handed the USA the Women's World Cup trophy in 1991 and Blatter did the same in 1999. It's been suggested Blatter and Valcke would be ill-advised to leave Switzerland after the Federal indictment against nine current and former FIFA officials and five sports marketing executives.
