Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Maybe we'll get to go this time...Olympic soccer women to return

News staff writer

Once again, Birmingham will serve as a jumping off point on the way to the Summer Olympics.

The U.S. women's Olympic soccer team will play April 24 at Legion Field in an exhibition against Brazil, Alabama Sports Foundation Executive Director Gene Hallman said Thursday.

The U.S. roster includes Selma-born Mia Hamm and Cat Reddick, a Briarwood Christian alumna. Other U.S. athletes scheduled for Birmingham include goalie Briana Scurry, defenders Joy Fawcett and Heather Mitts, midfielder Julie Foudy and forward Cindy Parlow. [...]

The World Cup teams have played a some exhibitions the past couple of years here, but we haven't gotten to go for one reason or another and the kids have really wanted to. We'll see what happens.
