    Jones, still in England, analyzes today that France could be a tough matchup.


    Meanwhile, Bill Dwyre is at the British Open.

    Only thing I can think of Jones has family in England and there's some family stuff going on. Otherwise, it doesn't make much sense.

    Could be. I've noticed the stories the last couple of days, at least on the MCT wire, have run withou datelines, or the tagline about him reporting from England.

    Not sure why USA Today doesn't count, but they have David Leon Moore and, it appears via Twitter, Christine Brennan both over in Germany.

    Also, the Washington Post has hired a freelancer/stringer/someone by the name of Michael Birnbaum, at least for the knockout stage.

    Jere Longman had Monchengladbach datelines today, so looks like he's joined the party.

    Don't know about the other major sites, but Yahoo has a writer over there.

    ESPN has an army. Sports Illustrated has at least Wahl. Sporting News doesn't appear to have sent anyone but is having staffers chime in stateside. (I say this based on a lack of datelines.)

    I don't think NBC, FOX or CBS sent anyone.

    I'm just stunned that Christine Brennan is there.

    Why isn't she at Royal St. George's to write about how that golf club has zero female members? It's true.

    Maybe it's just me, but I cringed when I read this USA Today recap on today's match:

    Well, ESPN is the rights-holding broadcaster. So, in typical ESPN fashion, they will treat it like it's the biggest thing in the world and people should actually care. It's women's soccer, for crying out loud. Ranks lower on the totem poll than next month's world track and field championships, IMO.

    But, the bigger issue might be this... given the financial state many newspapers are in, how long before they cut out all travel altogether? Is it really a smart spent to send writers all over the globe when you can get the same stuff from a wire service that you are already paying for?

    How many US papers will staff the British Open this week?
