Scouting Report: USA must put foot on pedal to Germans
| The USA and Germany have not played in more than two years, but there will be no secrets when the world's No. 1 and No. 2 teams meet on Tuesday in the Women's World Cup semifinals. The USA has the
edge on defense, while Germany has the better attack. But the key might be whether the USA chooses to press the suspect German defense.|

|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

punishment is a six-game suspension.
