Damn, no wonder I haven’t been able to watch Wimbledon

The U.S. women’s soccer team beat the Netherlands 2-0 on Sunday in Lyon, France, to win their second straight Women’s World Cup title, and their record fourth overall.

Megan Rapinoe and Rose Lavelle scored both U.S. goals in the second half. Rapinoe put the U.S. on the board with a penalty kick 61 minutes into the game, and Lavelle scored an insurance goal with a run up the center eight minutes later.

“It’s surreal,” said Rapinoe, the U.S. co-captain. “I don’t know how to feel. It’s ridiculous.”

Rapinoe sat out the semifinal victory against England after scoring two goals in each of the team’s preceding two games. She was named the outstanding player of the tournament.
