This weekend, New York City FC was playing a friendly. I forget the score; I think Mix Diskerud may have had 200 hat tricks.
But like I said, I forget. Because there are far greater stories unfolding in the soccer world.
Let’s go to Houston, where a big-ass trophy is set to be given out this evening to the champion of the National Women’s Soccer League.
The Western New York Flash are throwing down. The Washington Spirit are throwing down. Both may be throwing elbows as well. The action kicks off at 5:00pm ET at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston! It’s time to get ready— give a listen to our chat with The Equalizer’s KP Palmer this week on the SPHERICAL Podcast!
Top shop! We’ve also got a couple hot recommendations for reading material in the run up to today’s final:
- SB Nation’s Lauren Barker gives her keys to the game.
- Dan Lauletta of The Equalizer discusses the significance of Western New York assistant Dan Vallow stepping in for suspended manager Paul Riley.
- The Equalizer’s Chelsey Bush breaks down what she’s watching for tonight, including the most important matchups.
