How The USWNT Finally Figured It Out

After toiling in mediocrity for the whole tournament, with players playing out of position, no organizational structure, and no defined individual roles, the USWNT finally came out last night looking like the World Cup favorites we all thought they’d be. Because of that, we’re left with one question: the hell took so… »7/01/15 12:59pm7/01/15 12:59pm

FIFA Screwed France Out Of The Tournament, And It's Bullshit

Immediately following France’s loss to Germany in the Women’s World Cup quarterfinal, a rightfully frustrated Camille Abily lashed out at FIFA’s seeding protocols. As anyone who bothered to look ahead could see, those teams—probably the two best in the world—were always on a collision course at that early stage in the… »6/29/15 2:05pm6/29/15 2:05pm

French Player Slams FIFA: "They Have To Stop Taking Us For Idiots"

As undeniably awesome as last night’s France-Germany match was, it was complete and utter bullshit that these two teams were forced to meet in the quarterfinals.

Germany Kill Off Sweden With Sliding Circus Shot Goal

And thus the German machine charges on. Germany dominated Sweden for nearly the entire 90 minutes in the Round of 16, save a brief spell late on when, leading 3-0, Sweden threatened to make a game of it by scoring once and spurning a golden 1 v. 1 with the keeper. Nevertheless, Germany came right back to squelch any… »6/20/15 6:01pm6/20/15 6:01pm

Believe It Or Not, Germany Aren't Invincible

Yes, I am very aware of how crazy that headline sounds. Yes, I watched Die Nationalelf demolish Côte d’Ivoire, and how the score wasn’t 15-0 is beyond me. Germany are probably the best team in the world. They are the deepest team in the tournament besides the United States. They are a steamroller set to flatten… »6/11/15 3:23pm6/11/15 3:23pm

Germany Are A Steamroller, And They Expect To Win It All

Germany have historically been one of the best teams in women’s soccer, and they go into the 2015 World Cup like they go into every tournament: with the expectation of winning. They won the World Cup in 2003 and 2007, finished runner-up in 1995, and have won every Women’s Euro since 1995. They went 10-0 in World Cup… »6/03/15 3:35pm6/03/15 3:35pm

The Best Restaurant in the World Is: Disney's Epcot Theme Park

For the past year, Rich Juzwiak and Caity Weaver have scoured New York in search of the city’s greatest restaurant. This spring, the authors expanded their quest into a global hunt: the search for the Best Restaurant in the World.
