    One year since we launched the last one, might as well start a new one.

    USWNT match kicks off in a few minutes from Germany.

    And seven Mexican players were sent home from the Copa after being caught with hookers in their room.

    It would be nice to be a North Korean sports writer covering today's game. You could have your story written an hour before kickoff and just sit back and enjoy the match.

    DRESDEN -- The glorious beauties from our beloved DPR annihilated the hideous round-eyed whores from the USA 17-0 Tuesday in the opening round of the Women's World Cup. The virtuous ladies that represent us all -- led by our own heroic president Lil' Kim, playing in disguise because all the unenlightened Westerners think he has a girl's name -- only took 15 shots on goal. Two were so brilliant, match officials decided to count them twice.

    North Korea has missed a couple of good chances.

    Nice goal. The way Wambach cut the ball back to set up the cross was great.

    How is it that the Women's World Cup doesn't have its own thread?

    I ain't watching anyway. I got interested in soccer only when they brought those freakin' horns into the arena to make noise. :)

    Don't forget the Hamburger Helper gloves the goalies wear!

    They're not "freakin' horns," they're vugoogonzaloogielaylas. Get it right.

    Slow, slow start, but good work by Hope Solo to keep the Americans in it. Pia Sundhage made a couple of nice halftime adjustments and putting Lauren Cheney into the starting lineup appeared to be good moves.

    Good start. Better yet, not having to dig out a big opening hole. Nice.

    Couldn't believe how young the North Korean team was. One kid was 16!?! Of course, you never know if they treat birth certificates like Kim's golf scorecards.
