A beautiful article about the serendipity that led up to the photo of Brandi Chastain at the Womens World Cup. I remember the controversy well, and still think that it's silly. There's more clothing there than the swimsuit issue and she did nothing a man wouldn't have done.

I was lucky enough to have Michelle Akers as one of my soccer camp coaches, as well as her SPU coach. Uncle Nubby was a hell of a guy.

Women's Sounders games at coming up this summer, looking forward to seeing those. But what they're doing with the turf at the World Cup is unconscionable. It fundamentally changes the game when the players get rug burns every time they slide.
