The Lowdown: Ceding my voice to the masses

I have been producing this column in various forms on various platforms for most of the last eight years. The space has always been dedicated to soccer. Sports have always been a two-pronged outlet for me. One is the spectacle of watching elite athletes not only perform, but push themselves to their mental and physical limits–in public–knowing there is a chance to walk away disappointed. The other is how it breaks down cultural divides. I remember going to baseball games as a kid and, while I did not realize it until many years later, the entrance to the stadium represented an invisible barrier that cut down all racial, cultural and economic barriers. On the other side of that barrier, inside the stadium, everyone was bonded by their love for team.

This week feels different. This week it seems as if current events ought to take priority over anything I could discuss about the long NWSL off-season. With that in mind, this week I cede my voice to some prominent personalities around women’s soccer and the rest of the sports world.

Soccer talk will return next week and this space will continue to serve as an outlet for those of us bound by sports, NWSL in particular. It figures to be a big year for the league, and we’ll be here to document and discuss it every step of the way.
