If you’ve ever doubted yourself, walk deep into any forest. Notice how the trees still stand even though they are given no recognition. Walk along any stream. The water still flows, though no one stops to praise it. Watch the stars late at night; they shine without acknowledgment. Humans are just the same. We are made out of the same elements as these beautiful wonders. Always remember your beauty and self worth.

You’re entitled to your opinion. If you think it’s boring, that’s fine. I’m sure a lot of people would agree with you. That’s their opinion and while I disagree, I’m not gonna argue or tell you you’re wrong.

But to say NOBODY likes women’s soccer is factually incorrect. That’s not an opinion, that’s you being ignorant and stupid. 

Because when Seattle’s Starfire Stadium announced ticket sales for the NWSL championship game, they sold out of everything but standing room/lawn seating in 15 minutes. 15 minutes. That’s somewhere between 4000 and 5000 people who like women’s soccer. And that’s not counting the people like me who will be watching on ESPN2.

Back when WUSA was a thing, upwards of 30,000 fans were known to attend their league matches, I think the record attendance is around 34,000 or something. And that was in the early 2000s. 

So you can go fuck off into the horizon.
