Breakers Tie Kids Under 20 2-2, Ex-Season Ticket Holders Thinking, "Oh, Fuck No."

Breakers Draw with U.S. Under-20 WNT, 2-2, In Preseason Exhibition

I admit I have regret sometimes—not renewing my season tickets for the Breakers 2010 campaign. Sometimes I feel like I've turned my back on women's soccer, waiting, twirling my thumbs until the big announcement comes that the women's professional game has once again come to a halt in the United States (and like anyone would notice).

But then I think about all the Mondays I lost to the mental anguish of bullshit, nonsense, fucking Amy Rodriguez Breakers defeats. Lots and lots of Mondays—the most toward the end of the season. And, you know, the Breakers of the WUSA had a tough first two seasons, too, but those women played with far more heart and passion than anyone that makes up the Breakers lineup today. And that goes for Kristine Lilly. Boston Breakers 2001-2003 lost a lot, tied even more, but not once did you want to punch a wall when watching them. (Ask my living room about this, won't you?)

So, when I see news like this posted on bostonbreakers.com, like it's something exciting, or even something to SHARE—11 PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES CAN ONLY TIE IN MATCH AGAINST GIRLS STILL TOO YOUNG TO DRINK, should be the headline—I ask myself again—still feeling like a sellout? The answer, my friends, can be found in the title above.

It's good to know, though, that the Atlanta Beat mustered a win over the American children, with Ramona Bachmann scoring the two goals that sealed the deal.

Fuck you, DiCicco. You should be out of a job.
