Every Epic Bromance Month we feature a whole week of a particularly active bromancer. Since we decided to have some “fromances” this time around, who better to start with than the US Women’s National Team?They are ridiculous together. Heck, each of them could probably have their own week but this close crew definitely deserves the celebration after their World Cup win. First up, Clutch Carli and Hope. Continue reading
The following is a guest post from one of my fellow volunteers from the 2015 Women’s World Cup. She and I randomly started talking one day, a conversation which led me to interviewing her for our volunteer newsletter. It was during the interview I learned of her experiences being a female footballer living in London, and I (of course) just had to ask her if she’d be interested in sharing here. So happy she was and now has. The more stories female players share, the better off the sport will become.

Somewhere in that mob scene, I’m dancing and cheering. I can’t pick myself out, but it’s right in front of my office so I know I’m there somewhere. What a wonderful experience to see our amazing USWNT players given so much love. I cried and I say that with absolutely no shame. Continue reading
Time to vote for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015 goal of the tournament. FIFA has compiled a list of 12 candidates from which to choose your favorite. Since my two favorites didn’t make this list, my vote went to Ange N’Guessan for her power floater vs Norway. Which goal is your pick? You have until Monday July 13 10:00am (CET) to submit your selection.

I’m going to apologize from the get-go but this post is going to be a serious lovefest. I’m beyond thrilled that the World Cup trophy has come back to the States after a sixteen-year drought. And what a final! After a disheartening conversation with some guys about how women’s soccer was boring, Carli Lloyd’s fifteen-minute response was music to my ears. If this is boring, I’ll take it!
