If you were feeling a bit of the post-4th-of-July blues, how's *this* for patriotism—in a massive win, the U.S. team defeated Japan 5-2 today in the Women's World Cup final, and they're coming home champions.

It's the highest-scoring final in Women's World Cup history, and midfielder/superhero Carli Lloyd's a big part of why: She scored three goals in the first 16 minutes. Oh also, the U.S. women's team is the first to ever win three World Cup titles.
