Australia Women’s National Team, WPS: Inflatable

leave a comment »

Dear person(s) who actually typed that into a search engine: I have just the thing for you

To those people who stumbled upon this web page in search of Lisa DeVanna’s inflatable penis, I highly recommend this Cross-Conference podcast to you. The reviews say it is SO very funny and I think you will appreciate it.

USA Women’s Youth National Team: The S.S. Where’s Press

Mad props to commenter "RagingBull"

Blah blah, people are complaining about Christen Press being snubbed. My open letter still stands.

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: I Believed In Nikki Marshall Before It Was Cool

leave a comment »

Should have been the #2 pick. Shame on you, DiCicco.

As of this writing (July 29, 2010), Nicole Sue Marshall is currently the hottest striker in the league right now. Providing, of course, that you are ignoring Amy Rodriguez, and the three main forwards of FC Gold Pride.

I haven’t been quiet about Marshall on my Twitter. Despite all the people who are better than her, she’s still the best. That doesn’t make sense but I don’t care.

Marshall has scored in three consecutive games for the Freedom ever since they finally pushed her to the front line. Already people are gearing up to call her the WPS rookie of the year. The same people who were all “who is Nikki Marshall? Why is a Colorado Buffalo going so early in the draft? Where is Colorado, anyway?”

Before the 2010 WPS Draft even started, the Cross-Conference Collector said that Nikki Marshall could possibly be the #2 pick. While she wasn’t, she certainly deserved to be — and only now are people figuring it out.

EDIT (July 31, 2010) : Yes I know Cheney scored today and Marshall didn’t. Shut the fuck up.

WPS: Washington Freedom Says No to Underage Drinking

leave a comment »

Considering how many of the Washington Freedom roster is/were University of Virginia Cavaliers, I think “saying ‘no’ to underage drinking” is something they’re not really used to. Snark snark.

(Also, the normally very pretty Sarah Huffman looks…well. I am astonished!)

Úrvalsdeild, WPS: Disappearing Acts and Disappointments

leave a comment »

I checked the Soccerway rosters after Stjarnan’s first game against Afturelding, and there was no sign of Hanks, although McCoy does appear (with an Iceland flag next to her name, what the hell).

The search for the two-time Hermann Trophy winner goes on.

On the WPS front, here are Five Things We Learned From Atlanta Beat vs. Washington Freedom Part II:

  1. Allison Whitworth would’ve saved that. And that.
  2. Forget the 19-year-old (although she has major skills); McCall Zerboni is Atlanta’s MVP. Once she bloodied up Bompastor and got concussed while doing so, Atlanta’s offense — compared to last weekend versus Sky Poo — was a shambles. No offense to Mundy or Rasmussen.
  3. Jim Gabarra has secretly hired a Chinese coach to improve his players’ diving techniques. Wambach has benefitted.
  4. Only very drastic measures will get Rogondino and Hildreth to shut up. Unfortunately these measures cannot be mentioned in polite company.
  5. Stacy Bishop has the best sideways glare. Like a hawk.

WPS: #DYT Is Only Fun If It’s Rude

leave a comment »

Dear my friends, there are several topics to address today so let’s get started. From serious to specious:

  1. Carli Lloyd’s Injury. The nice thing to do is to wish Carli Lloyd a speedy recovery, because having broken body parts is quite unpleasant, and of course we can’t forget her admirable loyalty to Hope Solo. However, Sky Blue FC (or, as a certain wit calls them, “Sky Poo”) should be happy that Lloyd is out of commission, because that means there won’t be so many giveaways in the midfield. This is not good news for FC Gold Pride. (I repeat: NOT.) FCGP might just get beat by a Lloyd-less Sky Poo, because no matter what the USA Women’s National Team fangirls tell you, the last time Lloyd was ever any good was in 2008. We know that Becky Edwards or Carrie Dew can hold the ball better than Lloyd can, but without Lloyd some of the bets are not off. Like, what if Miettenen actually lights a fire under Yael Averbuch’s lazy ass?
  2. Jim Gabarra Is An Idiot. I must give him credit for keeping the heart and soul of the team (i.e., Sarah Huffman and Lori Lindsey) when the Washington Freedom made the jump from the W-League to WPS, thereby promoting team loyalty — at least for 2009. Then it all went to pot when he traded Lindsey away, benched Alex Singer, played Sonia fecking Bompastor in defense (defense!) and refused to release Briana Scurry. Of course, pertaining to that last bit, Kati Jo Spisak’s example is a ray of hope for Meagan McCray.
  3. If Connect World Football Were Any Good They’d Give Us More Kerri Hanks Updates. I’m just saying. The majority of the hits this blog gets comes from people who want to know where the hell she is. And I feel bad when I can’t deliver.
  4. New Talent. I really like the person who commentates on FC Gold Pride’s home match highlights. She actually injects emotion into them. I think she should replace Rogondino and Hildreth. Y/N?
  5. GERBER® GRADUATES® Needs To Sponsor Kate Markgraf. I think that speaks for itself. Buy more Wagon Wheels!
  6. Megan Rapinoe’s Illness Is A Mafia Plot. Why else does she have meningitis one day and mononucleosis on another? It’s the Chicago Way. See? [/capone]
