WPS: My Heart Will Go On

leave a comment »

AHAHA. Yes. I totally played the same “Easy Piano” score back when I was in elementary school. Another thing I have in common with Carrie Dew.

WPS: Unpopular Opinions

leave a comment »

  1. Ramona Bachmann is quite the little brat, but I am totally a fangirl right now because of that nasty little stunt she pulled on Rachel Brown. It spiced up my life. Yes, I know I should be ashamed of myself. And I don’t care.
  2. …still trying to identify the song my roommate is blasting…
  3. I have been scolded (in a roundabout way) for approving of Patrizia Panico despite her breaking Leslie Osborne’s collarbone or something. Hey, it was Boston and SBFC, teams I don’t give a poot for. And yes, I should be ashamed of myself.
  4. I imagine that Abby was more aware of Holmfridur Magnusdottir’s ability to crush bones because she didn’t get snitty at the Icelander, despite the latter constantly pushing and pawing at Huffy.
  6. Yes, I should be ashamed of myself.

WPS: No I’m not talking about Hope Solo…much

leave a comment »

I am glad that SBFC won’t have a chance to repeat as champions. That’s what you get for depending on poor Karen Bardsley to save your ass all the time.

Also, I am waiting for the league’s justification as to why the WPS commissioner left. I see that they have a replacement ready, but I hereby propose Lisa De Vanna as a better candidate, because she doesn’t know how to keep everything private and therefore we would not be constantly kept in the dark about what shady business the league does, especially if it involves inflatable penises.

NCAA: Oh Kerri Hanks Where Are You Roaming, Part 3

leave a comment »


Thanks to a tip on Twitter and the All-Seeing Google Machine, we have discovered that Kerri Hanks is now part of Texas Christian University‘s women’s soccer coaching staff.

Interestingly, Kristen Barg, one of the freshmen on the Horned Frogs’ roster, is apparently related to Courtney Barg, Hanks’ former teammate at Notre Dame. Please advise.

FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, NCAA: It’s Like One Tree Hill

with one comment

I am a University of California, Berkeley alumna so generally I am very protective of their women’s soccer team. However, even I know they’ll never crack the Sweet 16. Not with the coach they have now, unless they give him the boot and let Kelly Lindsey take the lead, for real this time.

(Dear SBFC fans who may have come by this way and want to rip on Kelly Lindsey for abandoning your beloved team: For a team that goes through coaches like disposable baby diapers, one might think the problem isn’t the coaching but your smarmy GM and bloated egos the size of the former USSR just because of that star on the crest of your Kraft macaroni and cheese jerseys. SO GO AWAY. Thank you.)

That said, I am totally sold on Alina Garciamendez, the Stanford sophomore and the heart of Mexico’s national team, both at the U-20 and senior level. That girl is El Tri’s be-all end-all. Seriously, I am dying to see her wonder goal against Nigeria. Not to mention she has impressive forearms.

Man. The Cardinal (and their unpleasant fans) always get the good ones. Yeah, I’m jealous. Shut the fuck up.

(Off-topic question: Is the Alex Morgan fanboy who mispronounced Lauren Fowlkes’ name — to hilarious effect — still commentating these games?)

Also somewhat ironically, Mexico’s current leading scorer at the tournament is Renae Cuellar, who plays for the University of Arizona — the team that usually ends up at the bottom of the Pac-10 heap.

WPS: Let’s (Not) Play WPS Fantasy, Week 5

leave a comment »

Nothing to say about WPS Fantasy. Didn’t change my team from last week.

Am pleased that FC Gold Pride won their Saturday game. And let me just say that Emma Hayes is an enigma. She might be crazier than Gabarra!

In the upcoming weeks I hope to address the Problem Of The Big Trade that I had earlier made allusion to. Although the trade was accomplished to the letter, various commentators in the WPS circle implied that Saint Louis was playing fast and loose with bargaining chips that they may not have actually owned. Another reason to hate Saint Louis!

By the way, I just watched the FSC broadcast, Atlanta vs. Sky Poo UNC. I feel terrible for Atlanta, although it just figures that Leigh Ann Robinson would be the goat. The “FC Gold Pride Curse” has not left her. (Also, I refuse to acknowledge that Brett Maron is in any way better than Allison Whitworth, even if she actually is. I SAY SHE IS NOT AND THAT IS THAT.)

WPS: The League Office Throws A Snit

leave a comment »

Or it least it sounded like a snit.

Statement: Today‚Äôs trade between Saint Louis Athletica and Sky Blue FC has not yet been approved by the league office…

This is in response to St. Louis local media reporting the waiving of Daniela by Saint Louis Athletica, the exchange of India Trotter and a future draft pick to Sky Blue FC, and Athletica receiving Anita Asante and the injured Nikki Washington in return, as you may read in detail here. To little old me, the reaction it sounds like the league office got its panties in a wad, reminding the league’s dear devoted fans that “it ain’t a trade until we approve it.”

So, dear league office — be upfront. You released those (rather huffy-sounding) tweets in order to protect yourself from the outraged Daniela fangirls. Am I right?
