The #USWNT just defeated Brazil in penalty kicks in the Women's World Cup quarterfinals. Much will be written about this game, even if women's soccer isn't a sport that much generally gets written about. My contribution? Abby Wambach's goal just felt more remarkable — poetic, even — than Landon Donovan's against Algeria in the men's World Cup. Maybe that'll fade. Maybe it won't.

But, the #USWNT survives to play another day. Wednesday, specifically. Against France.
