Hamm and eggs

Note: This post talks about women's soccer. It contains no spoilers of any matches. It is safe for you women's soccer fans to read.

I like soccer. You may have noticed, this year, the Olympics are on the other side of the world. Which means if a game starts there at 7:45 p.m., it starts here at 7:45 a.m.

Now, in Arlington, Virginia, there are at least two sports bars where a grrrl could watch that game and have breakfast. If a grrrl was willing to travel to D.C., the possibilities open up even more. And, naturally, that would be desirable, because OMG-we're-playing-Norway-in-the-first-round!

So yesterday, in preparation, I e-mailed to ask a friend where I could go to do that here. The main sports bar in town has recently closed and reopened due to an unfortunate Fourth of July party damage episode. But surely they'd be open, right? Or there'd be some other place? I mean, sports bars serve breakfast. Especially during the Olympics.

Here is what I got back:
Tomorrow MORNING?
Are you nuts?
The only option I can think of is to go to the Best Western and take the lounge TV.

(Yes, I know Mia Hamm doesn't play for the USWNT any more. Do you have a better title?)

Sounds like your only option is to have a soccer party at your house :-)

If only I had TV reception.
And friends who would come to a party at 7:45 in the morning.

I'd come to your house at 7:45 in the morning. Come to think of it, I HAVE come to your house at 7:45 a.m.

It's true, bzh, you have. But I suspect at the time you lived more like four miles from my house and less like 870 miles from my house.

King Chrysler on Winchester Ave repair shop opens at 7:30 am. They have cable tv in the waiting room and the remote is just sitting there for customer use. All you need is a reason to be in the waiting room.

True. I just wanted to be sure you know that you do, indeed, have friends who would come to a party at your house at 7:45 a.m.

Everyone should know that.
