Lisa Dahlkvist, Hedvig Lindahl, and Jessica Lindstrom — the three gay ladies from Sweden’s soccer team — beat South Africa 4-1, and tied with Japan 0-0.

Have you heard the word that Lindsay Lohan wants to remake Thelma & Louise with Jennifer Lawrence?
Love you, LiLo, but I’m pretty sure JLawrence is all tied up with Catching Fire and Mockingjay and Whatever Other Movie She Wants To Make until her trophy cases are absolutely full of Oscars and Golden Globes. But don’t give up on your dreams of making Thelma & Louise & Two Random Dudes!
