This team wins. Everyone wins.

I’m no fan of advertising, but these Nike adverts make me tear up:

At the beginning of the Women’s World Cup: And after US women beat the Dutch women’s team: What’s the context? This:

Addendum (10 July): “The women’s world cup team is the most American thing out there.

  1. David:

    Simple man. A D-License coach, a referee, and a guy who took over State Soccer Cup in Michigan for under 18 boys and girls. It was already an event for boys and not so for girls. I consolidated the tournament at specific sites where 300 boys teams would compete in one weekend and 150 or so girls / young women would compete at another site. Never done before in Michigan.

    For me, it was a lot of work and fun except for parents. I had one parent arrested for shoving a referee and kept control of the politics.

    To say I was not excited watching these individual players joining together as a team would be an a lie. It was exhilarating to see them win and express their joy at individuals. None of them I know; but, I would like to think that somewhere I played a part in getting them there. WE are amazing when we can come together.
