An unexpected, well-deserved Bronze medal for the Canadian Ladies.

Nary a sniff of goal through 90 minutes... all it takes is one, though!

Congratulations, girls!

Man, if that ball had hit Kyle it wouldn't have counted, too. Boneheaded play there, lol, standing way offside.

Luckily Matheson's finish was good.


What an ending to that game.

Kyle was diving very hard away from the shot in the very last second.

YEAH BABYYYYYY!

How they recovered mentally and physically after the USA game to turn in such a gutsy performance is beyond me but I am so proud. This is about soccer, sport, team work, women's sports, and a nation.

I was doing fine till the "I Believe" montage at the end but, much like it did after the women's hockey gold, I was a sobbing mess after that!

Sincy has a medal. Canada has a medal. This one means everything.

More like you missed out on something special by not "forcing" youself to watch the match. If you have to force yourself to watch something, is it really even worth watching?

Patriotic? Yes. Fan of footy, especially Canadian footy? Absolutely!

If there's any justice the US will get robbed on a bad call and Japan will win the gold medal.

Nope...but it may make up for when Wambach stomped on a Canadian defender's ankle in front of the Canadian net during injury/extra time.


And then she went over to apologize right after she did it. That I remember. Difference is I think that McLeod was holding onto the ball, Solo wasn't. Anywho, it doesn't matter, can't wait for the Gold medal game, it will be a good one.

I notice the men have some respect for officiating and don't whine and complain every time a phantom rule is pulled out.

Refs aren't superhuman. They make mistakes, really bad ones too. Happens in every sport.

Stupid decision and and stupid timing but grow up. Tancredi, Sinclair and the bunch gave it their all but some of the comments had "piss, poor loser" written all over it. Telling the ref to sleep well, wearing an American jersey? You deserve to lose with comments like that.

Next time, learn the damn rules and don't concede four goals?

What say you?


I hope your American team loses today.

without question

while i was happy with team canada's win, i found the only real excitement behind those string of final games came from the fans in vancouver, not the team itself. and most of the drama behind it seemed to be entirely manufactured, i dunno, not my thing

however, these olympic games are, more or less, the pinnacle of women's soccer, and this is a career-defining thing for them. it will be difficult for them to achieve this level of attention and success again, so it's really great for them to win a medal, regardless of its colour, after such a dramatic game against the americans

the golden canadian olympic hockey team, on the other hand, simply return to their 5-8 million dollar contracts and try to compete for the stanley cup

no question, this medal is more impressive and emotional for me
