While many complain about the doldrums of summer sports that have set in (especially now that Wimbledon is behind us), we are in the midst of a major worldwide sporting event: the women's World Cup in Germany. But on the front page of ESPN.com, the only mention is a question for their Streak for the Cash contest. On CNNSI.com's front page there is no mention at all. Both sites, however, mention the struggling U.S. men's team on their front page.
The American women are doing great! They are 2-0 in Group C; Their game Wednesday against Sweden will determine if they win the group. The United States has placed third each of the last two women's World Cups (after winning in 1999).
