Aftonbladet Web TV's Sports Channel had this humorous video of a German TV channel showing Josefine Öqvist exchanging shirts with a fan in the stands after the game.
Above, Josefine on Wednesday just seconds before the start of the U.S. game and likely 'visualizing' the ball in the goal. She had no goals on Wednesday but had several excellent chances thanks to her skill and great speed to beat defenders to the ball, esp. on long passes.
Maybe she'll do it today against Australia in the third Quarterfinal game of the 2011 Womens World Cup.
Would you believe that as recently as about April, the Locatel health/drugstore here in Hallandale Beach, on Hallandale Beach Blvd. near Panera Bread, STILL wanted the full retail price on the dozens of official 2010 Mens World Cup soccer balls that they had, at about $120-plus each!
Seriously, who pays that price so long after the tourney ended?
Reminded me of the Publix here in town charging full retail price for some of the Colts and Bears Super Bowl t-shirts more than a year after that game was played down here.
Yes, you can't sell them at that price because after the game is history, you can buy it elsewhere for $5, so why would you think customers would STILL pay $20-25?
