I was 1 of the 16,315 at Candlestick yesterday cheering for Women's Soccer. There were 2 Kiwi's sitting behind us, so my wife and I joined them in cheering on the Ferns (big chasm between #1 and #19 in women's soccer).
Ali played great, just as she did at Stanford and for our Gold Pride team back in 2010 when they won the Cup.

Congrats to Ali and the Ferns for their resolve: you made the match worth going to!
