One of those remember-where-you-were moments
Ten years ago this week, the American sports world turned its attention to soccer.
That was the summer that the Women’s World Cup and the American team took the sports scene by storm. Mia Hamm. Julie Foudy. Brandi Chastain. Everyone was head over heels for those gals. Thousands attended their games, and millions more watched at home.
And when Chastain scored the Cup-clinching penalty kick and pulled off her jersey in celebration, it marked an iconic moment in American sports.
Do you remember where you were?
I know where I wasn’t — in front of the TV watching the game. For the life of me I can’t remember what it was, but that afternoon, I had a church-related event that had been scheduled for months. I couldn’t get out of it. It couldn’t be rescheduled.
So, I missed the whole match. The Brianna Scurry saves. The Chastain celebration. All of it.
But the impact that moment made lives on even today. We’ll be commemorating that day later this week, and we’re looking for your memories of the 1999 Women’s World Cup. The good. The bad. The funny. The profound. Whatever it is, we want to hear from you.
