The US Women's Soccer team, including Point Borough High School graduate Christie Rampone, gets the gold in an Olympic re-match with Japan. The game, aired on NBC Sports, Ch. 69 on Comcast, just ended (4:36 p.m.). Team members are pulling on white T-shirts that say "Greatness Has Been Found" and posing for photos with the American flag.
