Yesterday, Jenn and I and a big group of great friends headed down to Carson for the inaugural game of the new Women’s Professional Soccer league, between the LA Sol and Washington Freedom. The weather was cool and comfortable and a crowd of 14,000-plus turned up to support the new league. LA’s team features some very impressive talent, including Marta, who is apparently one of the best in the world (and dazzled the crowd more than once). I was particularly impressed with Aya Miyama, who seemed to be everywhere at once. The Sol treated the hometown fans to a 2-0 opening day win. It was a great, fun afternoon — here’s hoping the new league really takes off!
