I’ve really tried to come up with a post lamenting the loss of the 2012 Women’s Professional Soccer season, but the only words that seem to be able to flow from my fingers are “Well damn, this sucks.” As someone whose first act upon re-entering the United States last August was to rush to a TV to watch last year’s final, I’m a fan who is supremely disappointed in the loss of the season. As I’m this upset and not finding the words to express this adequately, I’m going to rely on the words of others.
