This idea just won’t leave me alone, so here’s a short one shot. We watched USA vs. China the other day on TV and all I could think of was B&W as soccer players. I’m sure it’s been done before, but I needed to get it out of my system. I’m trying not to labor over it too much and just get it out. Pure fluff ahead.

—————————-

Claudia Donovan, a forward, and Myka Bering, a defender for the USA Women’s Soccer team sit in the bleachers taking notes during the English team’s practice session.

“That one looks really tough.” Claudia points to a player currently yelling obscenities at her team.

“I think she’s pretty hot,” Myka says, a sly lopsided smirk crossing her face.

Claudia tilts her head and follows the woman as she walks the length of the penalty box, hands flying left and right, stamping her foot and nodding her head occasionally, tight jet black ponytail flying as if she were an agitated horse.

Women’s soccer is so amazing. These girls are out there looking like models with their nails done and eyelashes long af going hard. They are running, tackling colliding and kicking so fierce. They go down hard and get up quick. I love that they ‘run like girls’ and 'kick like girls’ hell, you can even hear them yelling and shouting 'like girls’ and it is the most majestic awe-inspiring sight to see. I love each of their little hand things when they kick the ball and the cute as shit hair flicks they do. These women are beautiful and flawless and still out there kicking ass. I’d watch them all day every day and I’m so so glad more people are watching them.

As it happened: USA vs. Australia

Hope Solo’s saves:

What a start by #USA in the #WWC2015! Seems to me like Hope Solo is more of a distraction to the #AUS team right now….
