This is progress!

In what, I think, is a major signal of change comes from a great article in the Chicago Tribune: Boys are wearing U.S. Women’s National Team jerseys and that feels like progress.

I'm not a soccer fan, but I think it's high time that a female sporting event was attracting as much attention as this one.
