Women's World Cup 2011: Holy Flurking Schnitt!

Was our basic reaction when Japan scored a beautiful goal deep into extra time (FBers go HERE for links & video). Germany had dominated the 45 minutes we watched with the exception of one or two decent chances by Japan. Unfortunately for the host(esses?) and two-time defending champs, Japan buried a half-chance. The ref, however, was not going to call a penalty for anything short of a Last Boy Scout-style shooting -- she let more shoving go on than happens on a rush-hour subway. In extra time, both teams gave up on subtlety and just started throwing each other to the ground. Good times!

In case you wanted the Kang (Kodos?) quote set to music, here you go:
