Carli For President: Fifa Women’s World Cup 2015 Final Liveblog

Given how much everyone enjoyed our Live Chat of the Stanley Cup Final we thought we’d do it again for the Women’s World Cup! With thanks to Eliza Eaton-Stern and Faith Mitchell for repping the whole game and Locria F. who popped in for awhile (we don’t have a whole lot of soccer fans at The Other Half, is the thing.)

 

Let’s get right to the pregame commentary!

 

Eliza Eaton [2:23 PM] omg

Eliza Eaton[2:23 PM]are you watching the pregame?

Eliza Eaton[2:23 PM]Megan Rapinoe and her lady singing and playing guitar together

Eliza Eaton[2:23 PM]and I’m FLAILING FROM THE CUTE

 

Faith Mitchell [2:53 PM] I think I’ve seen that before, and yes. SUPER CUTE.

Faith Mitchell[2:55 PM]It makes me so happy that she plays for the Seattle Reign. Her and Hope Solo, even if she has become my footy problematic fave.

Faith Mitchell [3:21 PM]

 

Eliza Eaton [3:22 PM] that video from the Rock was AMAZING

 

Faith Mitchell [3:22 PM] I KNOW, RIGHT?

Faith Mitchell[3:23 PM]he’s so amazing

Faith Mitchell[3:25 PM]

 

Faith Mitchell [3:29 PM] UGH. HELEN MIRREN. YOUR VOICE IS SO AMAZING.

 

Eliza Eaton [3:29 PM] It really is

Eliza Eaton [3:29 PM] Also the USA lead New Zealand right now in the women’s rugby!

 

Faith Mitchell [3:32 PM] http://youtu.be/JzIK5FaC38w [LINK]

 

Faith Mitchell[3:32 PM] this is the song behind it, because it’s things like this that make it into my season mixes.

 

Faith Mitchell[3:33 PM] UGH ABBY JUST CRUSH MY HEART.

 

Faith Mitchell[3:36 PM]

Eliza Eaton [3:38 PM] I love it!

 

Faith Mitchell [3:39 PM]

 

Eliza Eaton [3:40 PM] wow, so glad someone that important is taking time out of his busy schedule to present the cup to a bunch of women

Eliza Eaton[3:40 PM] :confused:

 

Faith Mitchell [3:40 PM] yeah, but would you want to receive the trophy from a man that thinks that shorter shorts would help your popularity?

Faith Mitchell[3:41 PM]it’s a catch-22.

Faith Mitchell [3:46 PM] UGH ALEXI STOP TALKING

Faith Mitchell[3:46 PM]YOU’RE SCARING MY CAT

 

Eliza Eaton [3:46 PM] I’m tuning him out to watch the Eagles

 

Faith Mitchell [3:46 PM] good plan.

Faith Mitchell[3:48 PM]

 

Eliza Eaton [3:49 PM] daaaaaamn

 

Faith Mitchell [3:50 PM]

Faith Mitchell[3:50 PM]HAPPY BIRTHDAY PINOE.

 

Eliza Eaton [3:50 PM] omg. :relaxed:

 

Faith Mitchell [3:52 PM]

 

Eliza Eaton [3:52 PM] God I want Wambach to have her Cup.

 

Faith Mitchell [3:53 PM] OH GOD YES.

Faith Mitchell[3:53 PM]

 

Eliza Eaton [3:54 PM] omg.

 

Faith Mitchell [3:54 PM]

 

Eliza Eaton [3:59 PM] asdefoijadklsef;aklsdljfks;d HERE WE GO

 

Eliza Eaton[3:59 PM] PLEASE WOMEN

 

Eliza Eaton[3:59 PM]PLEASE DO THE THING

 

Faith Mitchell [4:00 PM]

https://twitter.com/sinow/status/617824225072676869

 

Faith Mitchell[4:03 PM]COME ON PINOE

Faith Mitchell[4:03 PM]HOT DAMN!!!

 

Eliza Eaton [4:03 PM] FSJDKLL;AFDSLFADK

Eliza Eaton[4:03 PM]YES

Eliza Eaton[4:03 PM]YES YES

 

Faith Mitchell [4:03 PM] THANK YOU CARLI

 

Eliza Eaton [4:03 PM] WHAT. A. GOAL.

 

Faith Mitchell [4:04 PM] that was like out of nowhere!

 

Eliza Eaton [4:04 PM] RIGHT?

 

Eliza Eaton[4:04 PM]what a set piece

 

Faith Mitchell [4:04 PM]

 

Eliza Eaton [4:04 PM] fucking ninja

 

Faith Mitchell [4:05 PM] AM I DREAMING?!

Faith Mitchell[4:05 PM]MY GOD

 

Eliza Eaton [4:05 PM] WHAT

Eliza Eaton[4:06 PM]ARE

Eliza Eaton[4:06 PM]WE

Eliza Eaton[4:06 PM]WATCHING

Eliza Eaton[4:06 PM]SHE IS SO GOOD

 

Faith Mitchell [4:06 PM]

 

Locria Fox [4:07 PM] Wake up Japan. Make this the Women’s World Cup version of Istanbul.

 

Faith Mitchell [4:08 PM] Agreed. I don’t want this to be like Germany destroying Brazil last year.  A WC final should be a test.

Faith Mitchell[4:09 PM]We’ll see what happens in the next half when we’re in the sun. That has to be a huge factor.

 

Locria Fox [4:09 PM] I ACTUALLY LIKED GERMANY/BRAZIL…i mean, I’m a Croatia fan and Brazil simply pissed me off

 

Faith Mitchell [4:10 PM] I’m a Germany fan and loved it, but there is a point when it becomes too much.

 

Faith Mitchell [4:13 PM]

 

Eliza Eaton [4:14 PM] THIS GAME THO

 

Faith Mitchell [4:14 PM]

 

Eliza Eaton [4:14 PM] THANK YOU MAY I HAVE ANOTHER

 

Faith Mitchell [4:15 PM] YES, PLEASE

Faith Mitchell[4:15 PM]WHAT

Faith Mitchell[4:15 PM]IS

Eliza Eaton [4:15 PM] CARLI LLOYD HAT TRICK

 

Faith Mitchell [4:15 PM] THIS

 

Eliza Eaton [4:15 PM] THAT GOAL

Eliza Eaton[4:15 PM]WAS

Eliza Eaton[4:16 PM]BANANAS

 

Locria Fox [4:16 PM] HEY NOW MY KHL TEAM CAME BACK FROM THIS DEFICIT, ANYONE CAN

 

Faith Mitchell [4:16 PM] was that behind the half line?

Faith Mitchell [4:17 PM] just barely in japan’s half.

Faith Mitchell[4:19 PM]

Faith Mitchell[4:21 PM] I think that there’s definitely room for growth on both the mens and womens side of the game, but until we can get past the long looming shadow that is the NFL, US soccer is never going to be the game of the American masses.

Faith Mitchell[4:22 PM] It is getting better, now that there’s more of a broadcast presence. I will take watching Alexi Lalas’ face at every tourney if I can get it on my television screen.

 

Eliza Eaton [4:23 PM] yeah I have to say I think it’s going to do a lot for the game in the US

 

Faith Mitchell [4:23 PM]

https://twitter.com/darcymaine_espn/status/617834100309798914

 

Eliza Eaton [4:23 PM] we’re obnoxious and we love winning by a lot

 

Faith Mitchell [4:24 PM] Especially when the MLS/NWSL season is diametrically opposed to the rest of the world because of the NFL.

 

Faith Mitchell [4:26 PM]

 

Eliza Eaton [4:27 PM] Japan scored!

 

Faith Mitchell [4:28 PM]

 

Locria Fox [4:28 PM] People probably won’t get the January 4th reference, so I’ll explain: My KHL team went down 4-0 in the second period and came all the way back to get the win in regulation

 

Eliza Eaton [4:29 PM] it happens somewhat regularly in hockey

 

Faith Mitchell [4:29 PM]

 

Faith Mitchell[4:29 PM]THANK YOU HOPE.

Faith Mitchell[4:30 PM]that was slightly scary.

 

Locria Fox [4:30 PM] Oooh. Someone brought up the Germany/Sweden World Cup qualifier. That works better than my KHL example lol

 

Faith Mitchell [4:30 PM]

https://twitter.com/billclinton/status/617835319438786568

 

Faith Mitchell[4:42 PM]God that was a pretty header.

Faith Mitchell[4:42 PM]shame that it went into the body of a Japanese defender.

 

https://twitter.com/sinow/status/617842181978652672

 

Faith Mitchell[5:07 PM]For you, Eliza. :wink:

 

Faith Mitchell[5:07 PM]

Eliza Eaton [5:11 PM] BUT YAY TOBIN

 

Locria Fox [5:11 PM] Okay, Morgan Brian with the assist. I’m okay with that, since she’s dating a Union player

 

Faith Mitchell [5:12 PM] I felt so bad for her during the Germany match. She got a real dinger with that header.

 

Eliza Eaton [5:12 PM] yep

 

Faith Mitchell [5:13 PM]

 

Eliza Eaton [5:13 PM]

 

Faith Mitchell [5:14 PM]

 

Faith Mitchell[5:16 PM]WOAH
