Women Soccer Players Don't Flop
By rickramsey on Jul 18, 2011
I'm now a rabid fan of women's soccer. Men's soccer? Phht! Men flop. Really. They could recruit Vlade Divac straight out of the NBA without letting him even see what a soccer ball looks like, and he'd be a superstar before mid-season.
Sunday's match between Japan and the US was one of the best matches I've ever seen, in large part because the women played clean soccer. And because they exhibited none of the honor-sapping flopping that is prevalent in the men's game.
What's this got to do with Oracle Solaris Cluster? Think about it. You can hit the Japanese women with a veritable tsunami of shots on goal, you can overwhelm them with skill, speed, power, and intensity. You can jump over them, power through them, score debilitating goals on them. More than once. And you can run them into the ground for 120 minutes. But they never go down. They never give up. They keep fighting. And they keep coming at you.
Wouldn't you want that on your side?
