WPS: Let Me Break It To You Gently

leave a comment »

I’m going on the record.

Allison Falk might best be remembered as the first player to score a goal in Women’s Professional Soccer.

When it actually should have been credited to Aya Miyama. Or Brianna Scurry, but that’s just ‘cruel’.

After thinking about it, I decided that it really wasn’t my place to blame 15-16 year old girls for not upholding the legacy of Mia Hamm or something.


Neither of these needs an inhaler

WPS: On Liz Harkin

leave a comment »

One of the top soccer defenders in the country, with an invitation to the women’s national team and a draft offer from a pro team, the Arizona State University senior has finished her collegiate athletic career. But now she’s zeroing in on medical school, studying for the MCAT, shadowing an orthopedic surgeon at Tempe St. Luke’s Hospital.

She’s also completing an internship with Mayo Clinic and working on an honors thesis on emergency medicine in Arizona.

“Student juggles athletics and pre-med studies”, Rocklin & Roseville Today, 17 March 2010.

Did I mention that Liz Harkin is insane.

WPS: Athletica’s Veronica Perez joins Mexico’s national team

leave a comment »

Last summer, she spent 10 days with the U.S. under-23 national team before deciding she would play with the Mexico national team, her mother’s homeland. In Mexico, she is already on the full national team roster and will earn her first “caps” — international appearances — when Mexico faces the U.S. at the end of the month — March 28 in San Diego and March 31 in Utah.

“It was definitely a tough decision to make,” Perez said. “I’m still young. Most of the Team USA girls didn’t get their break (with the full national team) until their mid 20s.”

“Perez realizes her dream of playing pro soccer”, The Daily Journal, 16 March 2010.
