Here I am summing up the footy I paid attention to this weekend. If you want more Galaxy, Arsenal and KC, tell Malena and Vince to post more often.
- What was your soccer watching experience this weekend? Shut up, because mine was better. I watched a match with Tasha Kai.
I am not kidding, really.
I saw Kai tweet that she was up in the Phoenix area this weekend. After some back and forth, she basically told me she’d meet me at the game.
She let me do a short interview. Afterward, she dished on a few of her ex-teammates (I won’t repeat the details here) but mostly we watched the game. She had some things to say about the tactical styles of the two teams and was a bit more subdued than I expected, then again, it was fricking hot out and that vaunted new stadium had little shade.
Classic Kai comment: she told me that she stopped by to see ASU play Oklahoma a couple of days before:
“They tore them up. It was sexy.”
Add Kai to my list of amazing women I’ve watched games with. That list includes Gabby Giffords so it is good company.
- As for the game and our Wildcats, unfortunately, the team is still struggling. But I have to give them credit for one thing.
I went to Renae Cuellar after the game to ask her about praise that Kai had for her. Cuellar made a short response and then praised her teammates.
I had a similar experience with LeeAndra Smith. Here I wanted her to talk about scoring the first goal, but she wanted to talk about the other women on her team.
Good to see.
- Yes, some much delayed weekend highlights. I was just so flabergasted that the Revs didn’t blow a lead this weekend.
