The U.S. Women’s National Team (USWNT) took a knee for Black Lives Matter before their Olympic matchup against Sweden on Tuesday, and they basically stayed down for the rest of the game, losing to the Swedes by a score of 3-0.
The U.S. sports equivalent of a 3-0 loss in soccer is probably somewhere in the neighborhood of a 45-0 blowout in football or a 10-0 loss in baseball. So, needless to say, this is bad.
This is a pretty accurate display of how the day went for the U.S. women.
Interestingly, the USWNT is not the only woke U.S. sports team to faceplant during Olympic or pre-Olympic competition. The U.S. Men’s Basketball Team, many of whom took a knee of proudly displayed social justice messaging on their uniforms over the last year, took two stunning losses to Nigeria and Australia before somewhat righting the ship.
