WPS Week 4

Pretty Tough - Soccer at related • 0 views

Week 4 of WPS took place at the same hour, same day and same coast. All 4 games this weekend were played at 6 pm on the east coast, on Saturday with a special FSC broadcast of the Sky Blue FC-FC Gold Pride match up that day. This weekend saw the Chicago Red Stars earn their first win of the season against a very strong Boston Breakers side, and that was the big story that came out of WPS.

Wow – Another Wainy Wednesday!

Who'd a thunk? I woke up at about 4:30 this morning to the sound of teeming rain -- and wondered how our young plants are keeping themselves from sliding down the hill. Really. As the light returns, I see that everything looks pretty much intact out there -- albeit waterlogged.

Not so intact are the egos of the Red Sox this morning, I'm thinking, as they blew a 10-1 lead and lost to the Orioles.

Saturday Stuff Including Sadistic Sex Crimes at the Top

Read Naomi Wolf's thorough and absolutely horrific article about the sexual perversity perpetrated by the Bushies in Iraq and elsewhere. I do not understand why Obama is rationalizing and temporizing about releasing the photos and really going after these sadomasochistic pricks.

The activities of these dudes so speaks to the fruits of the kind of self-righteousness and repression that is so often the hallmark of Bible thumping fundamentalism.

Sundry Sunday Stuff

Morning everybody! It's looking like a good reading day here in New Hampshire, although it's early yet!

The Bookeaters had an excellent meeting at the Exeter Inn last night, where we broke bread and discussed The Lincolns: Portrait of a Marriage. We all loved (and most of us read) the book, and I would highly recommend it as a portrait, not only of a marriage but of a period of time.

Okay so I do, I really do want to be rooting for Obama but what's with this latest appointment? GE's defender on environmental issues, Ignacia Moreno, has been hired to do the legal stuff for EPA? How did Obama explained this decision, I'm wondering. It kind of gives me a weird feeling in my stomach.

Happy Mother’s Day

Yup, it's Mother's Day. Hope yours is a good one, whether you're celebrating someone or being celebrated yourself. The universe has been kind enough to send sun, a steady breeze, and cooler temperatures hopefully making relatively pain free outdoor work a possibility for the hordes of mothers in New Hampshire who will be out there tending gardens and planting, perhaps, Mother's Day flowers.

Here's the WPS preview for the weekend - with some interesting match-ups, starting with FC Gold Pride and the Daniela-less (and MacNeill-less) Athletica tonight at 8PM ET.

Nice bit here from Dave giving Dick a dose of his own medicine.

Pia has announced the USWNT roster for an upcoming friendly vs. Japan ... 5/20 and 5/23 ... meaning that 17 US players won't be with thier WPS teams for a bit - but for the most part won't miss any matches. I was interested to see that, while the Breakers lose 4 players, one of them isn't Lil.

Three of Seattle's top four players are now out injured, so it's a matter of holding on against a team that hasn't conceded a goal since their season opener.

Today at 4pm at Memorial Stadium the Seattle Reign face the Chicago Red Stars for the first time this season.

Last week a come-from-behind draw against the Portland Thorns saved Seattle from their second ever loss at Memorial, but they continue to struggle to find an attacking rhythm with Jess Fishlock out injured.

This weekend brought a lot of opportunity for the three teams on the outside of the National Women's Soccer League playoff race. But after four games in two days, only one of those three teams was able to take advantage.

And with less than a month to go, the playoff window is closing and it's looking more and more like the top four will stay the top four.

The Thorns return home to meet the Red Stars in the final match of the regular season. Both teams are assured of a semifinal appearance, so both will likely be playing to get the best possible result while avoiding injuries to key players and resting as many critical starters as much as possible.

One of the most interesting stories of the match may well be the second appearance of the season for Portland's Tobin Heath, whose long-awaited return in Orlando last week was limited to the final half-hour of the match.
