There are two things to consider here:
1) If you like soccer-football in the least and haven't been following at least the USA in the World Cup the last few weeks, there is something seriously wrong with you.
2) Men are sexist pigs
I like soccer-football, and I like women (don't ask me in which order). I have the utmost respect for the women of the USA team as athletes, and I am pretty sure that the likes of Abby Wambach and Hope Solo could kick my ass, and the asses of most of the guys I play with on my GSSL and Co-rec teams (literally and figuratively).
However, let's not kid ourselves. You know where I am going. Comments like "you're going to have to work harder if you want to score on Hope Solo" and "Servando is a lucky man" are comments I was heard to make today, with CLEAR double entendre fully intended!
So, this begs the question... and I am going to put it up to a poll!
are vaguely sexist comments while watching women's soccer appropriate?
