Our whole family is obsessed with the Thorns - a professional womens soccer team in Portland. There are a number of US Womens Soccer Team members on the team and they are incredible to watch. I bought tickets to the semi-final game and took Frances. OVER 20,000 people there to watch and cheer on the Thorns. I feel so blessed to live in a city with a young daughter who thinks it is normal (which is should be) for that that kind of turn out for a woman's sport. It was an amazing game....and SO HEARTBREAKING. Devastating. Frances got lucky and got a ticket for the autographs after...but honestly, I just felt horrible for all the players who had to go through the motions. Half of them were crying as they signed autographs. Such an amazing group of women with so much class. I can't wait to cheer them on next season.
