And now a word from your local soccer experts…

Spreading the gospel. Celebrating the USWNT’s World Cup victory.* Entertaining Detroit News reporters.

*Celebrations which pale in comparison to our very own Katie, who made it to Women’s World Cup group stage games in Winnipeg and the final in Vancouver. You make us proud, Katie. You are a true American hero.

And then there were 2: 6/27/14-6/29/14

Alyson flew back to Michigan bright and early on June 27.

Lauren and Katie took to the beach.

The next day, they watched Brazil beat Chile on penalties from the FIFA Fan Fest in Recife.

On June 29th, they returned to Arena Pernambuco for some Round of 16 action: Costa Rica/Greece. The match went into extra time and was finally settled in penalties.

But mostly they just sat around, drinking caipirinhas and missing Alyson terribly.

Then Katie and Lauren, too, had to face the injustice that is the end of their World Cup adventure. The girls landed just in time to get to a bar to watch the USA/Belgium match.

Tim Howard was spectacular.

And we’ll just leave it at that.
