Was Megan Rapinoe's injury a cover for USWNT strategy?

Rapinoe a warrior on and off the field says team mate Press

U.S.co-captain Megan Rapinoe, who had scored all four of the Americans' goals in the knockout rounds, was on the bench Tuesday to start Team USA's Women's World Cup semifinal against England in Lyon. It's like an out-of-body experience, really - that's how I'd describe it. "REALLY? THIS GUY??? kind of way". It would be ridiculous to the point of laughter, if it wasn't so gross.

"She's always been unique in her style and flair and off the field she's also a warrior".

Bird concluded the article by linking to a voting-registration website. It would be great to have a president who would be proud to invite a winning women's team to the White House, and for that team to proudly accept. "The team has taken very seriously that we are role models", she says, "not just for little girls and little boys, but for other women". She's going to do her thing, at her own damn speed, to her own damn rhythm, and she's going to apologize to exactly NO ONE for it. However, players like Megan Rapinoe have laid the foundation for such issues to be addressed by creating an open dialogue.

Morgan celebrated her 30th birthday in the best way possible, ending a four-game goal drought and showing she's still one for the big occasion with a headed victor that puts her in a strong position to win the Golden Boot. "Keep doing you. It's authentic and I believe it's empowering you to become the most dominating and fascinating and influential American women's athlete since (tennis star) Serena Williams was in her prime".

U.S. coach Jill Ellis caused a stir when she named a starting line-up from which Megan Rapinoe was missing. "I have no interest in extending our platform to him".

"I stand by the comments I made about not wanting to go to the White House, with the exception of the expletive - my mom will be very upset about that", Rapinoe said a day before her team's quarterfinal win over France. "But I applaud her for taking a stance, for fighting for equality". And please don't come down on Morgan for her "sipping tea" victory pose after she headed the USA victor into the net - and on her birthday, no less. I would never be able to do this in a lot of other places.

Oh, and by the way, another prominent partner of another prominent USWNT hero wants you to know something: Megan Rapinoe and Abby Wambach are, in fact, different people.

Pride is a huge part of Rapinoe's personality.

This is a woman who, after her last win, told reporters, "You can't win a championship without gays on your team". Love you! Love the lesbian bad asses.

USWNT will battle it out on the pitch against England during the semifinals on Tuesday at 3 p.m. EST.
