This one’s going to hurt at Adidas headquarters in Herzogenaurach, Germany, for a long while. Friday night in the NCAA women’s soccer Final Four, both UCLA and Notre Dame were eliminated. Both Adidas schools with identical uniform templates, both losses at the hands of agents swaddled in the Swoosh of the Beaverton, Ore.-based infidel (USC and Florida State). Dark times indeed, friends.
Also notable from these two matches in College Station, Texas, are the photos that moved on the AP wire. There are, apparently, only two types of soccer photos: The ones above, where two players converge upon the ball, and ones like this or this.
So, if I may, let me boil down the NCAA women’s soccer tournament for you: Two girls run into each other while chasing the ball (these situations may also include making funny faces and clutching at jerseys). After that, other girls celebrate by waving their arms in the air.
There, I just saved you a few hours on Sunday. You’re welcome. — Bryan
