When the men's team win 4 world cups? 

 

This is a very good take from 10 years ago

Probably, but I like this better.  The spacing works better than cramming four across.

 

I disagree. Cram those suckers together to make it look like we’re running out of room on the shelf for all our titles 😎

How about the stars on an arch, but set it up like the Betsy Ross flag?

You mean for cancellation by the brand?

Joking aside, I'm not sure what you mean. Four on an arch would imply a circle, if continued. Both parts of your comment seem to indicate the same thing.

Gotta give all credit to the USWNT. I thought this was the year that other countries (and age) caught up to them, but they were close to flawless when they needed to be, and made it through a tough knockout bracket with confidence. Great tournament.

Yeah 4 on an arch, and then you can add more along the "circle" as you continue to win until you get to 13. That would mean we would all die by the time that happens, but hey, something to strive for, right?

Something like Brazil's with the 5 stars could work as well.

but more importantly where do I order a men’s size one?

They can be preordered from Nike. I'm slightly annoyed that the higher-quality version only comes in the women's cut. If I'm going to buy a jersey to celebrate this monumentous occasion, I'd like to buy the best quality and have it fit properly.

The people who derisively refer to "sporpsball" seem not to be sporpsballing this one.

Eh, I would argue that there's probably a point where it gets tacky. When you only have a few, it's fine, but there's a reason you don't see the Montreal Canadiens and New York Yankees shoehorning their championships in like that.

Where exactly that line is, I'm not sure. I'm almost certain it's before 13, though.

The USWNT wouldn’t need to figure out what to do with 13 until 2055, but the Lakers do a good enough job with 16.

I could be making it up, but aren’t soccer teams supposed to use a single larger or differently colored star to represent 5 titles?

MLS tried that then went back to a star for each win. Italy has 1 star for every 10 titles. Mainly because 3 teams were winning all the time and how do you fit 39 titles on Juve's new logo?

Yesterday was amazing.  Ok, I could have done without the oppressive heat (it was 98 at game time), but everything else was amazing.

I was on a plane for the entirety of the game. Thankfully the in-seat screens had streaming TV so we were able to watch. Half the plane clapped after the goals and the win. It was a cool experience. The woman next to me was watching Meet The Press.

Eliminating France and then winning the cup in France.

 

Oof, France. 

 

Had France lost to anyone else, you would be correct.   But there is absolutely no shame to losing to these women.

 

It’s “oof” when you lose at home to an inferior team, or a team that is later easily eliminated.  But being eliminated at home by one of the greatest teams in history, that goes on to take it all?  That’s an honorable conclusion to any tournament.

It's such a shame that game had to be a quarterfinal.
