Shade

As much fun as the U.S Women winning the World Cup was, but FIFA threw some shade on the trophy presentation.  They have models in skimpy black dresses handing out the medals.   This is the same organization that in 2004 wanted women to wear tighter uniforms.   It bothers me that FIFA still treated women soccer like second class citizens.   The reason is that Sepp Blatter made those suggestions, and whomever is the next president of FIFA will made better decisions in regarding women soccer.   Disappointing as that was it could not ruined what happened on Sunday because FOX got huge ratings for the World Cup Final against Japan, and today they had 10,000 at a victory rally in Los Angeles.  This Friday they will have a parade down the Canyon of Heroes in New York City.
