In New York City the first ticker tape parade was held for a women's sport team as the city turned out for the US Women's National Soccer team, the 2015 Women's World Cup champions.
I didn't do much with the women's world cup because, OK I admit it, I'm a terrible male chauvinist when it comes to women's sports. Still, I did follow the final. Congratulations for a victory hard won and well fought.
In South Carolina they lowered the Confederate Flag that had flown on the capital grounds either above the statehouse or on the lawn for the last 50 or more years. I didn't say much about this either because it struck as a case of what the hell have we been waiting for? Congratulations for a victory hard won and well fought.
