I guess it's time to have a thread where we can talk about the USWNT as they start their World Cup Victory Tour and continue towards next year's Olympics in Rio. The victory tour starts today with a game against Costa Rica in Pittsburgh. While it's a good chance for the players and fans to celebrate the World Cup win, it also shows the relative importance of the national team vs. the NWSL. The playoff race is heating up, yet many of the best/most recognizable players in the league will miss games to play on the tour. Today's starters: Harris; Krieger, Johnston, Rampone (c), Klingenberg; O'Reilly, Boxx, Lloyd, Rapinoe; Press, Rodriguez. And Heather O'Reilly scores already in the 4th minute.
