Don’t forget #USWNT 1999. Forever my heroes.

meninblazers: As soccer’s blogosphere breathlessly welcomes this week’s TIME Magazine with the peerless Lionel Messi on the cover, some outlets have forsaken basic research and overlooked this July 19, 1999 edition featuring the World Cup winning U.S. squad. Let us never forget.

In August I met up with some fine gents of Section 8 Chicago’s Hot Mess CF97podcast along with special guest Peter Wilt (former CEO of the Chicago Red Stars and first President and General Manager of the Chicago Fire). Peter and I were asked to be guest speakers on this paticular episode to discuss this summer’s Women’s World Cup as well as the Chicago Red Stars.  Needless to say, I was flattered they asked me to join them.  Peter has been an incredible inspiration and a wealth of knowledge to me over the years.  I was excited, yet nervous (obvs!) to share the mic with him.  In the end, everything turned out to be more fun than I could have imagined (or maybe it was the whiskey).   

This particular episode of the podcast is appx 2 hours long, but if you have 30 minutes on your hands while you’re surfing the net, on your commute to work, or need to kill time while you’re on the john then you should listen to the 30+ minutes when Peter and I discuss (and possibly share a little gossip) the WWC and the Chicago Red Stars:HOT MESS EPISODE 5: THE WAILING AND GNASHING OF TEETH EPISODE.  Women’s soccer chat chimes in at appx the one hour mark, and if you’re up for listening to more Chicago Fire and US Soccer related fun then don’t hesitate to listen to the rest of the podcast.  The men of Hot Mess CF97 wouldn’t disappoint you - would they?

If you have a chance to listen to the podcast, I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.

Footy love, nikhak
