Juventus vs. Barcelona, More FIFA Freakout, Women's World Cup

There goes another one, guys. We had to take a day off yesterday due to flooding and snakes at SSN Headquarters. Things seem to have mellowed, though, and we're ready to see what's up and tackle the weekend. We should probably begin with FIFA and figure out what the hell is going on there. The first thing of note is this: FIFA paid the Irish to stop legal action over the Thierry Henry handball. Oh, dear. Here...we...go!

Back on the pitch, there is the minor concern of the Champions League Final to address. It all goes down at the Olympiastadion in Berlin tomorrow at 2:45 p.m. EDT on FOX. Here's what you need to know:

The Women's World Cup gets underway tomorrow at 6:00 p.m. EDT in Edmonton when Canada host China. It's on Fox Sports 1. The first match for the U.S. comes at 7:30 p.m. EDT on Monday. Here are some Stories to Watch. Here are Five Things The U.S. Women Must Do in Canada. And finally...Who Will Win It?

Interesting dress code...
The U.S. Men also have some matches coming up. Friendlies, yes, but the opponents are good. They face Holland today (2:30 p.m. EDT on ESPN) and Germany next Wednesday.

We out!
