Australia v England is certainly not going England's way. Three wickets within the first six overs, and now Stokes is out. Buh bye England. England was favored to win the World Cup this year and I don't know if they are even going to make it to the final.

Megan Rapinoe, are you excited about going to the White House?

In my dreams, the USWNT reaches an agreement that allows them to visit the White House win or lose, and that if the players are too exhausted or underpaid to attend, they can send a team representative in their place. They decide to send Hope Solo. She gets to the White House and asks if there's anywhere she can change clothes. The President follows her into the dressing room to make a few wardrobe suggestions. Solo emerges alone a few minutes later and calmly asks to have a chauffeured car brought to the rear entrance. Shortly after she leaves, the Secret Service announces that the whereabouts of the President are unknown.

The wheels have begun to turn...

This morning, the President tweeted that he is "inviting the TEAM, win or lose" to the White House after the World Cup.
