What We're Reading in Women's Soccer; Week 6
Hope everyone had a fan and safe Labor Day! Let's get this party started.
André Carlisle has an absolutely amazing piece on white NWSL players talking the talk but failing to walk the walk, and how that speaks volumes more than anything else they were - or weren't - doing. He lays down examples of players keeping silent when they should be helping to amplify their Black teammates' voices.
You know what's even better about women's sports? When different women's sports collide! The NWHL (National Women's Hockey League) has teamed up with rookie sensation Tziarra King to create shirts that feature silhouette of female hockey players with different types of hair coming out of their helmets.
Also in the wonderful world of intersectionality, Kelyn Soong writes about how Natasha Cloud of the Washington Mystics help put together the shirts that Sky Blue FC and Washington Spirit wore for the opening game.
Tim Stillman interviewed Steph Catley on why she chose Arsenal, a lingering injury and about her time in the NWSL.
Allison Cary takes us to sunny Spain and highlights La Roja, the national team that gave the USWNT the toughest challenge at the last World Cup. If you have even the slightest interest in the national team, you must read this.
And last but certainly not least, Tobin Heath and Christen Press are indeed playing for the same (sports) team again as Jonathan Tannenwald reports their departure to the FAWSL.
And thats what you missed on Glee!
