Canadian Women’s National Team: Drama Llamas

leave a comment »

So right now the Canadian WNT is on strike or something.

But if you don’t care enough to read about all of the particulars (like me), I think this sums it up pretty well:

Isn't the Canadian men's team more crappy than the U.S. men's team? That's saying something.

Or you could go listen to this interview which sums up the prelude to the WNT strike pretty well.

CONCACAF Women’s Gold Cup: Canada wins it

leave a comment »

Canada wins the 2010 CONCACAF Women’s Gold Cup on a penalty kick from Christine Sinclair, awarded because of Veronica Perez’s Very Terrible Brain Fart. (Sorry, kid. Hope they don’t hold it against you.)

W-League: Dear Vancouver If You Please

leave a comment »

I’ll be the first to say that I am not a fan of Vancouver the city. Granted, my first and only visit only lasted 45 minutes, as my family spent most of the time in Richmond, where the citizenry irritated me to no end and I was never so happy to be an American than while I was languishing in British Columbia. I was so happy when we crossed back into Washington State, and when we arrived in Seattle it was SUNNY (yes, sunny), and that is how I know Canada hates me back.

But I would be very happy if Vancouver got a WPS team, and there are good reasons why they should. Among which is that it seems to be a rite of passage for the Canadian women’s national soccer team players to spend a season or several for the Vancouver Whitecaps, which is a very talented team in its own right (hell, it’s probably better than the beleaguered Atlanta Beat before it became the Atlantica, haw haw!). They could definitely make the jump to WPS if they had TEH MONEYZ. Rich Canadians please take note.

Another good reason is this:


Yes, I realize the kit is adidas and MLS. PUMA TAKE NOTE THIS IS WHAT THE KITS SHOULD LOOK LIKE.

Edit: I mean we want Kara Lang in the WPS, not the kit.

A closing thought: if Canada had a WPS team, it would be interesting to see whether Americans would count as “internationals” as they do here. Certainly more Canadians would be able to play in the WPS.

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.
