    2019 Womens World Cup France

    Yeah Sinclair asked Beckie to take it. I think it was because during the Algarve Cup Canada/Sweden went to PKs- and the only shot that was saved was Sinclair's. Sinclair is the least selfish person and player and always puts her team first and I think she also wanted to give Beckie some confidence back if it went in. And Canada does need to find someone to take PKs once Sinclair retires*. I am heartbroken and absolutely crushed by the loss today. Canada wasn't playing to their best, and I have no idea why we never used our subs - but Sinclair has put so much of herself into this team that I wish she could finally win a major tournament. It was probably her last World Cup and to see it end like this just hurts. I hope Canada can figure things out before the Olympics. *I will never ever be emotionally ready to hear the news that she is retiring. She is the Canadian Women's Team and Canada Soccer. The fact that she will probably retire without ever being named FIFA Women's Player of the Year is heartbreaking.

    According to the rules: "Unlike during ‘normal time’, when a sent-off goalkeeper can usually be 'replaced' by the team substituting an outfield player for a specialist reserve goalkeeper, substitutions are not allowed in KFPM so an outfield player would have to become the goalkeeper". I imagine someone brought up a question about "so what will happen in shoot-outs if the keeper gets 2 yellow cards?" - as according to the rules only the players on the field when the game ends can be involved in PKs. Which brought up the question between me and my sister - can you sub in a keeper for a field player? And do they have non-keeper kits with their names/numbers that they could wear? What a clusterfuc* that would have been. Apparently for the Premier League they won't be using VAR to enforce the "keeper on the line" rule. Which is bringing up the discussion about how the Women's World Cup is essentially being used as a test-run for this. What a ridiculous rule to put into play for the first time at the highest level of play for these women.

    I have no issue with scoring goals - that is needed when it can come down to goal differential with group stages. It was the over exaggerated celebrations that was tasteless. The USWNT are THE top team, goals are obviously going to happen. But IMO good sportsmanship should come with grace and class when a game is that uneven. Children are looking up to you and you should want to show them how to win, but also how to be a graceful winner. And yes Abby, I absolutely would be calling out men for behaving the same way. That’s not even a question. Just look at how much Neymar is criticized for his over exaggerated falls for starters.

    I will be watching too! And cheering on the Canadians while eagerly waiting for Sinclair to break that record. She has worked so hard (and for so long) for this team and this sport and I really hope this is her year. Canada has a bad tendency to not hit our groove until the 40th minute of the first half and it happened again today. We also can't seem to get more than one goal a game and we've done okay so far this year, but it can't continue that's for sure. VAR has definitely changed the game, as has the new hand-ball rule. I'm not sure I agree that a penalty kick should be the only option of a foul inside the box - as not all fouls stop a goal from being scored. Maybe a free kick from that spot instead would work unless it was a clear goal scoring opportunity that was stopped. Because now you may see more players aiming for a player's hand instead of the net.

    I saw talk on Twitter that it came down to international sales. ABC wanted a share of them, WBTV said no, so it was cancelled the first time. Then they went back to the table with the same request/denial which of course lead to the same conclusion. I am just smad that ABC even commented on the possibility of renewing it if they probably knew it wouldn't happen. Why give the fans (and more importantly, the cast and crew) any hope if nothing had changed?

    The show went up to a .7 last night! Which is great if ABC is watching - it tied with SEAL Team. And so now it seems like we wait to hear if ABC decides to reverse their decision.

    So it looks like ABC might be considering reversing their decision.

    ABC claimed that they cancelled it because the viewers weren't there, but they were just not live because 10pm on a Wednesday is not the time people are watching TV live. But like you mentioned, they weren't there for AMLT either but were once it got moved to a better time slot. So instead of giving WC another chance like they did with AMLT they cancelled it and decided to replace it with another new show. Apparently they think third time is the charm for Wednesdays at 10.

    It also suffered from a terrible time slot. ABC originally had "A Million Little Things" Wednesdays at 10, and it wasn't going well - it got moved to a different day/time and ratings improved. Wednesdays at 10 are a terrible time slot - and WC just didn't fit with the comedy lead-ins (which were also often on repeat which didn't help). I really wish ABC had given it another chance and moved it to a different time. I really think that it would have seen an increase in ratings in season two, especially if season one was on Netflix over the summer.

    The show's creator Bill Lawrence mentioned that the cost of filming in Europe with the sets and action locations would have cost double to triple to do in the States. And that for the cost of filming the cast walking down the streets in New York or LA they could shut down a bridge by the Eiffel Tower. I'm hoping the show gets picked up somewhere else, but I am not holding my breath. It's too bad because this show was so much fun and fun shows (that aren't comedies) are missing from TV right now.

    It did air out of order actually. This episode and next week’s were switched - which I think explains the now follow up with what happened with Emma. I am hoping this show gets renewed, it’s currently the only ABC show whose fate hasn’t been announced yet.

    The show was renewed for a second season!

    Susan did tell Frankie that she saw her ex-husband and his new fiancee out one night, so yes she is married and divorced. So I assume "Sampson" is her married name?

    Ray was also with GiGi when Will was shot in the pilot. So because Ray was late to the mission (because he was sleeping with Will's fiancee), Will was shot and could have been killed. I think that adds another layer to the situation for Will hating Ray still. Ray not only betrayed Will, but put Will's life in jeopardy because of that betrayal.

    I think we might get more about that soon, or at least more about Will, Susan, and Ray at Quantico:
