Who the heck cares?


Women’s Professional Soccer (WPS) announced Monday plans to put a team in Atlanta in 2010, which will be the second year of play for the league.

The only thing I can think of that is less exciting is the WNBA.

    don’t you remember that one time when that one girl scored a big goal in the olympics or world cup or whatever and was so excited she pulled her shirt off–i mean we are talking good times here…

    This is a big gain for metro Atlanta. Soccer is growing across the country and Georgia is one of the most competitive States for club soccer. The Silverbacks are a great entertainment value. And hopefully this will help them move up to the MLS.

    The MLS is actually entertaining I’ve got to say. However the WUSA (womens soccer league) already folded years ago due to lack of interest.

    And as for the WNBA, it loses money every year and just leaches off of the NBA. It is a charity, nothing more.

    Well, it could bring new meaning to the concept of “Fantasy Sports”

    I’m all about cheap thrills 😉

  5. WOW! What a great idea! No one has EVER thought of a professional woman’s soccer team in Atlanta…at least since the Atlanta Beat folded a few years ago.

    I went to a couple of the matches and no one took their shirts off. Big disappointment.

  6. Keep in mind the Atlanta Beat couldn’t even sell out Georgia Tech’s football stadium…well…err…hmmmmm, I guess it’s not fair to hold them to a higher standard than the Tech football team.
