The sad part, however, is that professional women's soccer/football in the US seems to be dead. Something tells me that Bend it Like Beckham came out about a year too late....
The Santa Clara Broncos really are a national powerhouse when it comes to soccer, having won the national championship in 2001 and competing on an equal level with the country's biggest universities. Looks like they're playing a home game against Loyola tomorrow night and against Pepperdine on Sunday. Both games are sold out, too... which means you can probably get tickets for $7 at the event if you arrive early enough. Hopefully we'll see more of the Broncos in the NCAA finals!
I don't normally root for anyone, but in this case, I will make an exception.
Go (insert local team)!
