This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation. When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.

The Brazilian women, the Samba Queens, played a game today to which you can only say OMG!!! The Brazilian women are the Brazilian men, only they're women! OMG!!!
Brazil beat China IN CHINA 4 to freakin' NOTHING!!! The Chinese women were the best team in the world a few years back. That day is done, my friends. Now it's watch out for Brazil, just like it is in the men's game.
Let me 'splain this to some of my sports challenged readers, using an analogy best understood by the nerdy. (As you know, no judgments here at Lotsa 'Splainin', at least not of my loyal readers.) Here's a picture of Orlando Bloom as Legolas.
Q: What can Legolas do with a bow and arrow?
A: Anything you can think of and five things you can't think of.
That's what Brazilians are like with a soccer ball at their feet. It used to be that's what the guys were like, but the gals... not so much.
Now... so much. Much so much. All four goals were freaking poems to a samba beat. Here's a link to see the highlights. This is why the world loves soccer. It's like watching the best acrobats in the world, except somebody is trying (and failing) to trip the acrobats every few feet.
