Proud.

I have to quickly mention how proud I am of my friend, Carli Lloyd. I've known Carli since she tried out for my dad's soccer team at age 11. She was the littlest one on the team... so adorable. But, man, was she awesome. She played on the soccer team with my little sister, Kacy. My dad coached the team from age 11 until all the girls went to college. They won almost every tournament they entered and were New Jersey State soccer champs nearly every year. They were so good.

Now, the "proud" part.

This morning, Carli lead the US Woman's Soccer Team to an Olympic gold medal by scoring the only goal to beat Brazil 1-0 in overtime. How cool is that?

Congrats Carli! We're so very proud of you!



Here's the goal if you want to see it:
