last night, we watched a new documentary on ESPN about the women who won the world cup for the united states in 1999. not only was it incredibly uplifting to relive the heroic and arduous scenes from their rise to the top, but watching them reflect and narrate on the ordeal was poignant and touching. they spoke with such vehemence about their need to play; it’s absolutely contagious. i highly recommend checking it out.
brandi chastain was always my favorite (even before she scored the winning pk and took her shirt off), and in this picture, she is absolutely ablaze with life. she reminds me to find passion in all that i do.
