Pretty good showing for field hockey
US women's field hockey will not be advancing to the medal round in Beijing. Needing a win (and some help) against Great Britain the other day, they only managed a (scoreless) tie. The team actually only got one win, against New Zealand over the weekend. I saw some of it and I have to say that, having very little knowledge of field hockey and very little experience watching it, I really enjoyed it. It's a fast and very strategic game.
