Congratulations to Japan, and certainly they are a country in need of a national win like this after what they have suffered. It was, from what I can tell, a clean game. But it is still heartbreaking after everything the US Women went through.
And that is the ultimate tragedy of life sometimes. You can perform superhuman feats of endurance and strength, come back time and again, and still lose in the end. It isn't always Hollywood. But, at the same time, it is important to remember just how awesomely the US Women's Team performed.
