    Great Britains football team play a blinder.

    I'm referring to the womens' team who've just beaten Brazil to head their group in the Olympic competition. (if you're reading this in American, I believe you call it soccer over there). Three games, three wins and top of their group. Quarter finals against Canada on Friday night. Go girls go!

    I played football for a womens' team back in the 60's. It was called Foden's Ladies after the company who made the lorries (trucks) and my dad was manager. Back then womens' football wasn't taken seriously at all but look at it now, an Olympic Sport and tonight's game was played at Wembley Stadium in front of a crowd of 70,000! If it hadn't been for people like my dad who supported and believed in the future of womens' football this wouldn't have happened. Sadly, he's no longer around but he'd have felt proud and rightly so.

    (It was 75000) silly

    But I thought we did well, even outplaying Brazil for the majority of the match.. Disappointing that there were no goals from the 2nd minute onwards lol

    Men's over here is hit and miss popularity. In western NY women's is a big deal thanks to Abby Wambach. In American and Clive Toye speak it's soccer. If I watch anything actively it might be this. I'll admit my bandwagoning on this one
