Open Thread and Women’s World Cup After Action Report

Just checking in while memories are fresh.

So we tried the experiment of having the 7 pre-made bare-bones women’s world cup threads in the sidebar.

How did it work out?  Good, bad, indifferent?

If you think it was worth doing, then next time I think we should have one or two designated people to let me know in advance when a big match is coming up so I would know when to move a post to the front page.  Too many times I stumbled on a comment asking for that, long after the match was over.

Anyway, please share your feedback here so we know if you guys think this is worth doing again.  It didn’t take long to make the 7 bare-bones posts, so it’s not too much trouble if you guys find it useful.

Open thread.

PSA: FIFA Women’s Soccer Matches

There are now 4 more FIFA Women’s Soccer inks in the sidebar, and there is a category for just for this, so you can get to any of the 8 posts by clicking on the category on any of the posts.

But for you guys who are really lazy :-) here’s the direct link.

I’ll add the brackets to the posts once we know them, but the posts themselves will be bare-bones.

If you give me some advance notice for the important matches I can move the thread to the front page – hopefully the US will be one of the 16 teams – but either way, I’m sure there will be the big games.

If one of you soccer fiends wants to find be a better photo, I will replace this one.

*I’ll check back in the morning and read the thread to find out everything I did wrong. :-)

USA!   USA!  USA!  (too soon?)

*I’m super tired after working 30 hours in 3 days, so I won’t be surprised if I have bungled something!
