I’ve never been certain whether the moral of the Icarus story should only be, as is generally accepted, ‘don’t try to fly too high,’ or whether it might also be thought of as ‘forget the wax and feathers, and do a better job on the wings.’

I have non-breaking news for you: FIFA does not care what you think.

Over the years, FIFA has never seemed influenced by what is written or said in papers, articles, tweets, blogs, and on television about how it operates. And over the years, women’s soccer has not appeared to sit high on FIFA’s priority list….

FIFA certifies turf and puts the FIFA stamp of approval on it. So it appears that we have a messaging issue: How can FIFA put its stamp of approval on turf and then not allow it for World Cup games? To which I would argue, even FIFA states on its “FIFA Quality Programme” website that “turf is the best alternative to natural grass.” Alternative, not “better than grass.” In countries or places where an appropriate grass surface is not an option, then turf is indeed a great alternative. But that is only when grass does not or cannot grow.

More non-breaking news, folks: Canada can grow grass.

Sydney Leroux slides her manicured nails across her phone and pulls up a text she got from Kobe Bryant two days ago. I was willing to sacrifice anything but not compromise, it reads. He sends her stuff like that all the time. It’s part of their ongoing dialogue about greatness and the makings thereof.

A few weeks ago, Kobe sent her another one. Question I want you to think about in detail: Why are you going to be great and how are you going to get there? Leroux pondered that one for a few days. Then, on a plane, she scribbled four pages of notes in her journal, snapped pictures of the sheets and sent them back to Bryant. You have to do what must be done and sometimes happiness doesn’t always come from that, but greatness does, she wrote, among other things…”

You don’t realize how alone you are until you’re staying up every night thinking about things you should never think of and you cant tell anybody because you have nobody to tell.
