Here Is A Video Of Pia Sundhage Singing Simon And Garfunkel

It's as awesome as it sounds.

Detailed, in-depth analysis of this stunning video after the jump.

Pia Sundhage is well known as the most laid-back high level football coach in the world. She's always happy, even after her team loses, and she subscribes to a theory that she calls the "7+1 rule," where she gives only one piece of criticism for every seven compliments that she gives to her players. While all of that lack of yelling and screaming is well and good, incidents like this one show that Pia's philosophy is really based on her personality and not just some random coaching philosophy she believes in, which is pretty awesome. Also pretty awesome: Paul Simon.

When the United States takes on Japan in the final of the Women's World Cup, they might not play their best and they might not win, but playing loose and fun probably won't be a bad thing, especially since getting stressed out against a team that passes like Japan is a really good way to get your tail kicked.
