And that goes double for me.
Here’s everything I wrote this week:
- Tuesday: The USA women beat Colombia 2-0, and at Northern Pitch, I had three thoughts.
- Friday: With the Women’s World Cup reaching the quarterfinal stage – i.e., the point at which the games actually start to matter – I wrote a preview of what to watch for in the four quarterfinals for SoccerCentric.
- Saturday: Soccer Insider in the Star Tribune this week looks at Teal Bunbury, the standout Minnesota kid that somehow flies under the local media radar. (Seriously, he’s like the Tyus Jones of soccer. Why he’s barely been covered is beyond me.) Plus some short takes on Women’s World Cup ticket sales, Jonny Steele, Copa America, and the upcoming Gold Cup, and a weekend watch guide.
- Saturday: More thoughts, this time from USA-China, as the USA has now finished the warmup rounds.
