Night out with my bestie @karinaleblanc. Were both going to London. #withourmedicaldoctor http://t.co/rpHLhPUz
Karina Leblanc on Fox Soccer’s Goals on Sunday to discuss WPS.
Probably her best point was what this would be doing to the development of soccer in the US. ”Dream big…and you can go to Sweden.”
Not a lot of in-depth talk about how WPS got into this mess in the first place, but they didn’t have much time, and it would’ve been off-topic. She was there to promote WPS and try to save the league.
Wish they would show more footage of adult fans at games, though. Kids are great, but you don’t build a league on the backs of little girls, you do it on the backs of the disposable incomes of adult fans. Not to say WPS shouldn’t court young girls either, they just can’t be the sole focus of marketing efforts. The kids are the gateway to the parents. Nothing better than seeing moms and dads who’ve brought their daughters to Harvard stadium cheering their fool heads off because they love what they’re seeing.
Philadelphia goalkeeper Karina LeBlanc made a valiant effort but couldn’t stop Yael Averbuch’s shot.
