Sorry for not having a 99 Friendship last week. My computer decided it was such a bad episode that it wasn’t going to record it.
Erin McLeod is not only back for FC Rosengard, but as of recording time she had played 180 minutes of soccer without suffering another torn knee ligament. We make jokes about how this will inevitably end badly to keep from crying about how this will inevitably end badly.
Truly horrible and unfortunate things happened to Shelina Zadorsky and Steph Labbé in the NWSL. I try to remember how math works. Carolyn comes up with a strategy for defending indirect free kicks.
- The indirect free kick we talk about, by the way, is this one:

Because this is not a video podcast, on account of “then I’d have to put a shirt on,” you can’t really see what we’re discussing. But it’s that. Look at that.
Your friends and mine, Ika Kelley and Britta Rooooostad, played for NSGSC against Surrey United in the BC Provincial Cup ladies final on Saturday. We actually watched it. No analysis comes out of that but we do talk about it!
The Canadian Olympic mixed doubles curling trials are being held in glamorous Portage la Prairie, Manitoba in the middle of January! I’m sorry for running wild with the italics but this might almost be too exotic for the proletarian culture of curling. Anyway we want to go. Carolyn especially wants to go because she’s a Toba type, and I especially want to go because I could take the train for like three days. For the sake of everyone’s sanity I did edit out the several minutes Carolyn and I spent discussing Portage hotel amenities (not a joke).
Jennifer Jones is going to curl in Siberia! That is also not a joke.
