USA "sneaks" past Finland

So we defeated a fundamental, hardworking Finland team tonight, 72-0.... all our backs got TDs and Lee should've had two, but both were called back for holding. Crazy. I am so proud of our team - not only for the great things that happened today - Rusty Sowers was a two-time MVP of the game, Tarsha had an awesome block that took down two girls and was the block heard round the world, Welter had an awesome sack, our defense blocked a punt, and Rusty returned a punt for a TD... and on and on.

The entire team got to play good minutes tonight.... which was great as our second and third sets of offense and defense are people any team would love to have. We came up with an awesome beat before the game and did it after halftime as well.... so much passion on our team and heart - you can't keep this team down.

Our opponent made the mistake of saying they planned to score 20-30 points on us... unfortunately for them our defense is like a rock, and it was never close.

I was disappointed in some of my mental game today... my snaps were bad for at least 3-4 plays and luckily Sami got things worked out for 2 of the plays. I got subbed to work it out and I went back in and we scored and things were better. Not sure if it's my hand or what.... need to just relax and believe.

The best thing about being on this team is that when one of us is struggling, we have a host of teammates to pick us up and keep things rolling. I'm really happy that Mully, Pickett, Riddle and Tarsha got some good playing time. Got to see Vet tonight - she had a long travel day and hopefully we'll be able to hang out with her on Saturday or Sunday before she goes back to England.
