How the Ball Bounces
Everybody in Temple Valley is bummed out over the loss of the Japanese women's soccer team (a.k.a. Nadeshiko Japan) to the U.S. Well maybe not everybody, but let's say the majority are a little down in the dumps over the defeat. Some people blame the loss on bad luck, others on a bad call by one of the refs, but I know better.
The team had a sure fire secret to success and they let the cat out of the bag shortly before taking home the World Cup in 2011. That's when some of the players took part in the "Algorithmic Exercise" segment regularly featured on the children's television programming aired every morning on Japanese public TV. It's the only logical conclusion I can draw. The competition was able to see them in action and copy their winning moves. I guess that's the way the ball bounces.
