Today in LA

In case you haven't noticed, the U.S. Women's National Team defeated Brazil 1-0 to win the Olympic Gold Medal. But enough about the WNT, as we've got three youth national teams and 25 other U-17, U-16 and U-15 teams here in Carson.

Many of the players gathered this morning in at The Home Depot Center, where before breakfast the USA-Brazil game was played in the Stadium Club.

Marta caused them to ooo and aaahhh, Hope Solo's big saves caused some gasps and applause, but the packed house was loudest when Carli Lloyd struck, errr, gold.

We'll have more photos and video from this event later.

Also, with the Olympic final going to overtime, the entire schedule was pushed back 30 minutes (so all of the start times on the schedule are all off by 30 minutes)
