I’m a sports fanatic, especially when my team wins. Right now, that team would be anyone who can beat the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team. In other words, so far, my favorite team is Sweden, who crushed these ungrateful bitches in a 3-0 defeat in the first soccer game of the Oh limb picks.
Other than the 5000M women’s race, I could care less about any of this, EXCEPT seeing the US Women’s Soccer Team suffer total humiliation. The 5000M women, one of my best friends and my physical therapist has a daughter running the 5000M race, with the first qualifying heats to be July 30th at 6am EDT. Since no family is allowed to watch, he’s having a watch party starting at 3:30am MDT that morning. I’ll be there!
But, back to women’s soccer. Here’s the take on their fabulous play in game 1. If you scroll far enough you get to see Catturd’s comments, which are always a delight.
There is always this fine piece:
“Yeah, we didn’t score any goals against Sweden last night, but that was totally on purpose,” said star player and beloved activist Megan Rapinoe. “This isn’t the time to score goals—when America is still racist. We totally could have beaten Sweden but we decided as a team that no goals will be scored until complete equality has been achieved in America. Also, we demand a hefty raise.”
Onlookers were stunned during the second half of the game when Rapinoe dribbled the ball all the way to Sweden’s unprotected goal and whispered “This is for you, people of color,” before kicking the ball straight into the air and running headfirst into the goalpost.
“This may be one of the most powerful performances in the history of sports,” said Teen Vogue’s sportswriter who has never watched sports.
The U.S. Women’s team is demanding to remain in the Olympic tournament and promises to continue its streak of zero goals. Inspiring!
