#The99ers


Fun fact you might not know about me: I love women's soccer. I got really into the sport during the Olympics, and while I don't watch games on regular, I try to keep up with a lot of things about the players and such. So when I saw that one of ESPN's last Nine for IX films was about the 1999 Women's World Cup team, I knew I had to watch it. 

Okay, I say this literally about almost every sport documentary I have watched, but this one was amazing! Julie Foudy had a bunch of home videos from their journey to the World Cup, and you get to see the team in a way you wouldn't normally get to see. And they are such dorks! 

Around eight or nine of the players from the team go back to the stadium in California, and they reminisce over their experience during the World Cup, and then at some point Abby Wambach and Alex Morgan talk to some of the players. Honestly, this just made me want to play soccer which is literally the worst idea ever considering I can't run... 

Ugh, literally just go watch this. I love it so much. I love the USWNT. I love women's soccer. So much love.
