Underneath that optimism--they're worried

Not a good start to the defense of their Olympic gold. The US women's soccer team lost their opener to Norway the other day, 2-0. Major bummer. The two goals came in the first 5 minutes of the game off two defensive errors. Despite the pressure on the new coach, the noticeable absence of Abby Wambach, and this early blow, the team is optimistic saying things like the "glass is half full" and these are just "timing issues" they need to work out.
I don't quite buy the brave face they're putting on--not that they have much of a choice.
Stay tuned.
