Whaddup, soccer friends. Still adjusting to springing forward? Yeah, me too. Here are some links, though, which might improve your morning.

USA disappoint with goalless draw against Iceland at the Algarve Cup | FOX Sports
This game wasn't televised (sigh), so you'll just have to take the internet's word for it. But 0-0 against Iceland (if you click through, you'll see their coach said the USWNT should have "trashed" them) is, indeed, disappointing going into a final against a France team that bested us just one month ago. Anyway, that final is tomorrow at noon, and it will be televised. Look for the gamethread a few hours before kickoff.
