Sky Blue FC Gets First Win


Yours truly stayed home sick yesterday (awesome!) and caught the replay of the Sky Blue FC - Chicago Red Stars from Sunday. It was matchday five in the inaugural season of the WPS and Sky Blue FC earned its first win 2-0 over previously unbeaten Chicago Red Stars. It wasn't a bad game, but something kept bothering me.

See that pic up there? Which team do you think is Sky Blue FC? Nope, not the team in the light blue uniforms, the ones in all orange. Strategy or irony? You decide.

And that concludes UF's semi-regular coverage of WPS.

Semi-regular? Really? Once a year isn't semi-regular!

But FC Gold Pride are all gold and all lesbian, right?

Based on that photo, the supporter turnout was phenomenal.

All I know about women's soccer I learned in that NYT article about girls tearing their ACLs three or four times and STILL fighting to get back on the pitch. That's some admirable dedication, if slightly retarded.

hey now, that's the second post under the WPS(L) tag. who knows, there may be others out there without the tag. And, WPS just started so, two stories in 5 months is good right?
