Oh what a night!

Women's Gold Medal Football Match
USA v Japan
We were there! And it was amazing!
We arrived early and found our seats. We watched the teams warm up and gathered up our signs and pom poms and giant flag. I tried to ignore the sideways glances from the less than enthusiastic British couple seated next to us. There were plenty of Americans with so much pride and team spirit. It was definitely a great night to be an American. I was shamelessly patriotic.
There was some pre-game fun with giant soccer balls and a huge banner that went right over our heads!
Way to go Team USA! Thanks for making me and our whole country proud. A truly great Olympic night for all.
But we're not finished yet! More Olympic moments to come!
