11. Well, CNN doesn't even have editors anymore, so I don't think we can expect Sports Illustrated to.

That's where even unintentional potential double entendre would be caught.

It's a dying art.

27. two women on the cover

and the tag line "One nation. One cup."

yeah... not very subtle there...

Could have gone with

"Unstoppable!"
"US Dominates!"
or my favorite
"Now the Fight for Equal Pay!"

26. And they mostly have to play on turf

where the men always play on grass, which increases the injuries for the women's teams.

29. Same reason their prize money pool is around $40 million

And the men's winning TEAM in 2018 took home $38 million by themselves.

It's a totally sexist world our there. I know. I've lived in it as a woman for 66 years.

13. cleat colors?

Apparently Trump hates that color and is demanding that the next AF1 be painted red White and Blue instead of that eggshell blue.

Wonder if that was intentional?

23. I never really got interested in soccer...

but that changed this year.

This is such an incredible positive from our country that the whole world is hearing about. Leave it to the women to bring us something to be proud of.

You go girls! Thanks for giving my little granddaughter role models that show here girls can be and do anything.

32. The men get paid more because they have to play soccer while lugging around big heavy penises.

(I meant that as sarcastic humor, but on reflection that seems to be the actual reason.)

33. STUPID, STUPID, STUPID. IF YOU ARE A REPUBLICAN THAT MEANS DUMB, DUMB, DUMB.

Great photo. But it sends a terrible message. What is up with a teammate jumping on another?
I was nonplussed when Megan Rapinoe scored her first goal against France and while she was
acknowledging the cheers of the crowd, out of nowhere a teammate runs up, and jumps on her
back.
My first thought other than that being a stupid move was there was a very big chance she could have
been injured.
And, gentle reader, I saw Rapinoe jump on a teammate's back in another game.
I'm still shaking my head.

37. Have you ever had someone jump on your back without warning?

Well I have many times.

Unless they knee you in the ribcage or you are already injured, it is a non issue, your body instantly adjusts to the weight without issue, mine did.
