Old news, but I’m glad to see there will be a women’s professional league again. I can understand why they want to wait until after the World Cup and Olympics, though I think they probably could have managed to start in 2008 along with the Olympics. Clearly they learned the lessons of the WUSA and are starting small with a long term view. I hope it succeeds and that the league is eventually able to expand into some USL markets and arenas.

On a side note, is anyone else really worried about the USWNT match against England this weekend? We seemed to really struggle in group play, and while the rest of the world’s teams are getting better, I worry what’s going to happen down the stretch if we play like we did in the group.
