IF IT AIN'T BROKE... United States women's national team coach Greg Ryan answers questions during a press conference in Shanghai following the U.S. team's 4-0 loss to Brazil in the Women's World Cup semi-final. Ryan decided before the game to bench goalie Hope Solo, who had gone 300 mintues without giving up a score, in favor of 36-year-old Brianna Scurry who had minded the net for the U.S. while winning Olympic Gold.
It didn't work.
By the way, good on the Women's World Cup for having Jose Cuervo as a sponsor.
NORTHERN HAITI HOPE FOUNDATION: After our recent trip to Haiti, we vowed to do more to help. Clean water is a critical issue for all Haitians. It's particularly problematic for those in rural areas. For $2,000 to $5,000 we can build a new well in a rural village as part of a program facilitated by the St. Barthelemy School and the Warrenton, VA Rotary. Send your donation to Wells of Health and Hope, c/o GPetty-VTA, 38 Garrett Street, Warrenton, VA 20186 and keep your eye on T.A.H. for progress reports. Thanks! CLICK ON THE PHOTO FOR MORE INFO.
