The Old Perfesser would have known what the magnificent US Women's Soccer Team was feeling last night. For it was Casey Stengel who wisely said that "there are some games you can't win, and some games you can't lose." In this essay, RVT wonders if the soccer gods took charge and somehow affected the outcome. It has happened before...and it will happen again. Maybe that is one reason why we love sports. Sometimes there are upsets that live on forever, for better or worse. I hope you enjoy the reading and I look forward to your feedback.
