    Might be mistaken, but I feel there's FAR less "dives" in the women's game.
    Could be - I don't watch enough to make a good comparison but there is some. I was responding to crimsondevil's comment with a way to limit any potential acting so that a player with better PK skills could take the PK.

    You're not mistaken. I know quite a few casual soccer fans who simply will not watch the men's games. The dives turn off the American casual soccer fan.

    As for the USWNT. I loved watching the game and seeing them win and celebrate. I was at a watch party hosted by the parents of a player I coached for a few years. Having about a dozen other adults and even more kids and teens to celebrate with was fantastic. I even ran into a guy I used to play indoor with something like 25 years ago!

    My daughter snuck into my room and snatched my jersey to wear it during the game. It was on at 8 am for us, which is perfect for a family with young kids. I think it is the first sporting event she has watched with me start to finish since some basketball game that kept her up past bedtime on a Monday in April 2015.

    What a great way to spend a Sunday morning! I can't remember the last time my daughters watched a sporting event with me start to finish. They both play soccer but neither watch it...or any other sport. Ironic since I watch so many programs that are sports or sports related.

    I do remember that game in April 2015, however :-)
