This weeks Daybreak Doppler Dames theme is hot vegetarians.

A Bonnie-Jill Laflin sort of morning.

Make sure to stop by this afternoon as Mark from The Wisconsin Sports Tap will be joining us for your Thursday Q & A.

I know some of you guys will hate me, but the biggest sports story yesterday was the US win over Algeria win their World Cup group for the first time ever & advance to the next round.  Sorry, just can’t ignore something like that.  I know most of you out there aren’t huge soccer fans, hell I’m not either, so instead of a full recap here are 5 thoughts on the US win over Algeria .

Of course it wouldn’t be a US World Cup match without some sort of officiating screw-job, here’s video of yesterday’s disavowed goal .

Whether you are a proponent of capital punishment or not, for the most these days the methods of completing it are relatively humane, especially when compared to these methods of execution from the past.

As children we’re always told to tell the truth, after all that’s what George Washington did, right?  Well, as grown ups it turns out there are some situations where it’s OK to fib a little .

So yesterday, I think it was yesterday, we linked to the hotties of Wimbledon.  Today we have the loudest grunters in women’s tennis.

Hey look… Twins, the good kind.

C’mon, that was pretty exciting  - Even the anti-soccer people will have to admit that yesterdays US win over Algeria was pretty thrilling at the end.  I know that ‘nothing’ (read scoring) happened till the stoppage time but for those that stuck around to watch you weren’t disappointed.  My only concern now for the US Team is that if advancing was a main goal, they don’t let down.  On Saturday they have a favorable match against Ghana and from there who knows.  I can realistically see two more wins for this team in the next round.  Would that turn the tide for soccer in the US?  Probably not but it makes for some good viewing.
