US Women’s Soccer

July 25, 2011 § Leave a comment

I think the support surrounding the US Women’s Soccer team over the last couple of weeks has been incredibly refreshing. It is rare that we see women heralded as sport heroes or regarded as phenomenal athletes. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather watch these women kick butt or lose (with all of their heart) in the final moments of the World Cup than watch a million Kim Kardashian style reality tv shows. That said in case you missed this interview amidst all of the other news coverage about them last week, take a minute to check it out now.

Don’t they just make you smile? Wouldn’t you love to have access to their games the same way you have access to College Football on Saturdays? I would.

Here’s the thing, even if you can’t catch this team in action, you can support your local women’s soccer team (or any local women’s sport for that matter). The Atlanta Beat has two more games this season. What’s that? You didn’t know Atlanta had a professional women’s soccer team? Well it does. Go on, check them out! (Hint: Their next game is July 23 at 7pm).
