A historic comeback by the US women's soccer team

Playing against favored Brazil, they were down a player for nearly 60 minutes, and also down a goal after a truly horrific call by a referee who insisted on inserting herself into the game. Incredibly, they tied the game on an Abby Wambach header with just over a minute left in injury time and then won the game on a penalty kick shootout after an acrobatic save by goalie Hope Solo. An inspiring display of American spirit.
