No. :wall: US just scored in added time to the OT, before it was to go to penalty kicks. :wuzrobbed

So heartbreaking for the Canadians - especially as that US penalty was so not a penalty :(

The US got a good last goal, but anyone who knows an OUNCE about this game knows that "refereeing" was the worst I have ever seen in a woman's soccer match. The bias was so alarmingly blatant. The amount of US handballs not called, the b/s "penalty" called that wasn't a penalty, the purposely trying to injure our players at the end of the game... I've never had so much disrespect or ill will for one team in my entire life. All I can say is go Japan!

My landlady has switched the channel to boxing and I just don't get it. I can't for the life of me tell which boxer is meant to be winning.

I thought the British guy was getting slaughtered by the German, but the British was declared the winner (unsurprisingly, commentators and audience content). In the second match, the Indian guy appeared to be slaughtering the Uzbek, but the Uzbek is declared the winner. This time, the commentators and audience boo loudly.

Now, it's Japan v Turkey and I still have no clue what's up. The Japanese is declared the winner and bursts into tears it seems, before promptly gathering himself and resuming his boxing demeanor. The Turk was certain he'd won and is in disbelief.
