                 I will be quite honest with you
         this girl does not know a thing about football or soccer
      men or women's, not a thing . . . 
         but, I can feel the excitement of what is happening in France
  especially the opening game on Monday with my
  country of Canada vs Cameroon . . .  
    and WOW, Hoot, Hoot, VICTORY for Canada !!!!!!
  of course, its a four week tournament so anything can happen
              but being a Canadian let me wave our flag-
         I am so proud of these amazing athletic women
      and their fighting spirit to win, win, win . . . 
         so proud-  not just for the Canadian women but all
  the players on every team from all over the world
  for their dedication and work to be the best they can be
     and for representing the women of the world-
  oh yeah, I like women who play the game of football soccer !
