Jul 18 2011
The 2011 Women’s World Cup ended yesterday with Japan prevailing over the United States in penalty kicks. The United States had the game won a couple times, but ended up coughing up a lead, and turning up a total disaster in PKs. The past two summers we’ve had the privilege of watching the men and women’s World Cup take place. Both tournaments were immensely popular around the world, and shared some glaring similarities and differences.
Unathletic witnessed both tournaments and have decided to highlight these similarities. Hit the jump and enjoy…..
5. Players Cried :*(
Regardless, of the gender the World Cup is an emotional roller coaster. Think about what is at stake… You’re playing for your country, it’s once every four years, and it’s the ultimate competition in your sport. Win or lose tears are going to come.. The image of a player laying on the pitch crying is found in either tournament.
4. We Had Boobs!!
Well, Larissa Riquelme is famous because of her boobs at the World Cup. Maybe this kid in the video will now be famous. Either way, we had boobs!
3. Soccer Players Are Attractive
Sorry, female fans, guy author means the focus is going to be on the ladies. However, I’ve heard plenty of times there are some good looking male soccer players from female friends. How about Alex Morgan? Her stock is going to skyrocket. She’s going to be a hot ticket for a while.
2. Players…. FLOPPED
I was curious about this one….. Women flop too. Oh, well. It’s a plight that does not show gender bias in the world of soccer. Oh well.
1. People Enjoyed The Games Over a Nice Cold Pop
I was shocked to discover that there was a huge showing in bars across the country yesterday for the Women’s World Cup. Some of the best times I’ve had in the bar was during the 2010 World Cup. Soccer is the new bar sport!! Ummm…
