It's WAR

I believe

US vs Mexico World Cup Qualifier.
President Elect Donald Trump.

Dear American Outlaws, these things should not mix tonight.
A few months ago AO took a stand against the "puto" chant. I'd never been prouder to be a US supporter. I wish to see that same standard to the code of conduct tonight.

I'm sure there are Trump supporters in the group. Don't make the chants against Mexico about him. Frankly, I hope to not hear anything negative against Mexico tonight. The stakes are now higher than the game.

Have fun, stay safe, and hug it out after the game no matter the score.

Let's keep the rivalry about the game.

ETA: I found all these links after the game, and although we lost, I couldn't be prouder of the statements before and during the game.

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more

This Friday I will be attending the US Men's vs Colombia Copa América Centenario opener at Levi's Stadium.

It's the first time I will be in a supporter's section for a US game in about 10 years. I'm curious as to how the culture has changed since I was so deeply involved in it. I'm hoping that it's not become too bro-tastic, but to be honest I'm afraid that ship has sailed as soccer has gotten more popular in this country.

I will be making a visual protest regarding the current dispute with the women's team by not only wearing my women's jersey (3 stars!), but having "#equalplayequalpay" on the jersey front and back. I'm hoping to have other supporters join me in this.

This will be the last time I give U.S. Soccer money until this is resolved.

No corporate welfare!

Do not ever accept a professional sports team using tax dollars to build their houses.

Kudos to the Seattle Starting 5!

I believe that SHE will win!










(I've included the Forbes article because of his strawman argument of taking into account the lack of attendance at the club level. This ain't about the NWSL.)

Thank you, Steph

A) I didn't know he made these comments until now.
B) I think this is an even bigger statement than even Dave Zirin says they are, but Zirin does point out exactly why they are not "tepid" nor "neutral".
This man is currently one of the most famous people on the planet. What he said about HB2 is staggeringly huge. Especially since Jordan never said shit about anything political. He was diplomatic, but he was straight-talkingly (pun intended) clear.
