    Cable/satellite TV is a waste of money. Most of the time there's channel after channel of melodrama from the 24 hrs news channels, to the reality shows when really I'm probably much better off getting off my incessantly wanting to get bigger keister, and doing what I did during the match, transplanting some tomato plants for my son. Even if I do miss things like two of the four WNT WC matches, and from seeing highlights, and write-ups, I didn't miss much from the US side, in fact it probably saved my TV set from a flying object #20 stepped up to take that spot kick.
    Now I'm off to read the "Does Ellis have the guts to bench Wambach" article.
