In Case You Were Wondering

There are lots of young women out there playing soccer who have some mad skills. Check out the video of U.S. National Team members YTobin Heath and Casey Nogueira displaying some mad ball skills. If you want to see these young women playing this year, Heath will be playing for the WPS Atlanta Beat and Nogueira will be playing for the LA Sol.

By the way, if you ever wondered if female players can't be tough, look up the story of Sky Blue FC's Christy Rampone, who is among other things, the U.S. Women's National Team captain, leader of the Sky Blue FC, and was on a team that had three coahces, including herself, at the helm of the WPS team. Rampone was the player coach for the team that had a huge run through WPS playoffs, knocking off the three top teams in the league to lift the inaugural WPS Cup.

So what you say? Rampone was lifting the WPS Cup while three months pregnant.
