So US “soccer” ace Alex Morgan celebrated what became out to be the principal aim towards our courageous Lionesses by miming taking a sip of tea. Alex that isn’t the precise way to drink a cup of Rosie Lea (perhaps your spies at the England team lodge need to have paid extra attention), but we’ll save the etiquette classes for later. What we’re interested about proper now is what Morgan may want to have supposed using it probably. We have a few thoughts.
Mocking the Brits
Perhaps she became without a doubt mocking us Brits for being a gaggle of geeky freaks who drink tea of a day, in all likelihood with scones or cucumber sandwiches or the Queen. Yeah, egregious stereotyping. In the same manner, as had Steph Houghton scored her late penalty, she would possibly have mimed guzzling a supersize burger meal with XL fries and a gallon of soda. No, it’s now not pretty, is it Alex?
A records lesson
It could have been a nod to the Boston Tea Party. We had you in 1773; we’re retaking you now. Like the fascinating England lovers who used to (maybe nevertheless do?) unfold their palms and sing the Dam Busters theme in the course of internationals with Germany, although likely now not pretty so horrific due to the fact the history is going lower back a lot also.
What’s the tea?
Maybe it became Morgan’s way of asking “What’s the tea?”, an expression used on the whole using gay guys and drag queens, and which RuPaul’s Drag Race brought into the mainstream. What does it mean? What’s the state-of-the-art gossip, necessarily. Oh appearance, I’m the present day gossip, due to the fact I just fired us into the very last of the World Cup. None of these makes you look precise, Alex.
A message to Trump
It changed into a non-public message, directed at Morgan’s president. Hey Don, now that Megan’s been dropped, the women have had a piece of a reconsider over the whole White House boycott thing, and we’ve decided to come back around for a cuppa in any case, while we win. Which we will, USA, USA, USA. So run and put the kettle on, will you love … No, not Melania, you! And no, Ivanka can’t come.
On Sunday, the world may be focused on Lyon where the US and Netherlands are gambling within the FIFA Women’s World Cup final. For the third time in a row, there might be no German countrywide crew inside the very last.
In reality, in the beginning, glance, the hassle’s of the girls’ countrywide crew replicate the ones of the men’s countrywide team. Except for Dzenifer Marozsán, Germany lacks world-class gamers, however even as the men’s software seems to want some tweaks, the girls’ application faces deeper structural troubles.
A former powerhouse Germany won the World Cup in 2003 and 2007. Eight years ago while Germany hosted the match, the women were removed in the quarterfinals through eventual winners Japan. Four years later in Canada, it became eventual champions the United States that knocked out Germany within the semifinals.
