The final whistle, mercifully, was blown at 5:51 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time, which was 6:51 p.m. Japan Standard Time — and more effort, energy and precision went into the conception and composition of this sentence than into the whole of the Olympic women’s soccer game between the United States women’s national team and Australia.
The U.S. women’s national soccer team on Tuesday qualified for the knockout stage of a major tournament, hardly newsworthy amid the rush of medals, upsets and complications at these Tokyo Olympics.
