Awesome article in Sports Illustrated on the 2010 soccer retirement class.
GREAT quote about the women, this is worth passing along:
The 2010 retirement group helped put U.S. women’s soccer on the covers of Sports Illustrated, Newsweek and Time during the same glorious week of 1999. So, thank you, Brandi Chastain, for burying your penalty kick, your jersey-waving, sports-bra-baring celebration, and the classy way you handled your moment in the global spotlight. Thank you, Briana Scurry, for your sprawling saves, your honesty in interviews,your leonine ferocity patrolling your area. And thank you, Kate Markgraf, for your defensive instincts, your leadership, and for showing everyone that world-class female athletes can balance competition and motherhood.
Women’s sports pioneers are born every year. Here’s to looking forward to the future.
