2011 FIFA Women's World Cup Starts Today

The 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup kicks off today and runs until July 17 with the hosts and defending FIFA world champion Germans taking on our Canadian neighbors in a Group A matchup in Berlin's Olympic Stadium  and Nigeria taking on France in another Group A match in Sinsheim.

For you fans on this side of The Pond, ESPN will be covering all the tournament action, and Team USA doesn't play its first Group C match until Tuesday when they take on North Korea in Dresden.

Of course, I'm going to be showing much love to the Team USA women and all the women footballers on these electronic pages as this tournament gets started and moves to the championship match in Frankfurt am Main on July 17.

I'm hoping my girls will be the ones holding the championship trophy aloft on that day, but there's several weeks worth of games to play before we get to that point.
