    NEW YORK -- The non-stop nature of soccer helped and hindered NBCs Arlo White and Kate Markgraf in their coverage of the U. Pink Air Max 90 Shoes .S. womens team, which lost to Sweden on penalty kicks and was bounced from the Olympics.The USA are distraught, White said, describing the aftermath of Lisa Dahlkvists deciding penalty.He expertly built the tension throughout the broadcast and reflected the significance of the three-time defending Olympic champions and defending World Cup winners heading home without a medal. White and Markgraf even caught a bit of soccer gamesmanship before the last penalty kick, when U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo changed gloves to make Dahlkvist wait a little while and think about her shot.There were two huge moments right before the penalty kicks when the Americans and then the Swedes had goals disallowed by the referee on what appeared to be questionable offside calls.Asked to take a stand on Lotta Schelins disallowed goal for Sweden, Markgraf hedged.
