Turns out that 1. the Women’s World Cup final is in Vancouver, which is basically Northern California, and 2. tickets are still available and not expensive, which is a little insane.
Also, I’m a little obsessed with the Women’s World Cup, which I wasn’t even totally aware of until this past summer it became very clear when people talked about the World Cup that I thought they meant the Women’s World Cup. What other one is there?? Come on, I’m of the generation of girls that all played soccer and grew up with Mia Hamm. Somewhere there’s a picture of me and my sister at a match at Soldier Field when it was in the U.S. in 1999—also the last time the U.S. won, so, maybe I’ll be a good luck charm.
Basically, how could we not go when it’s a short flight (or a long drive) away.
This is now the thing I am most excited about this year.
