On Friday night, I went to Stanford to watch the first round of the NCAA DI women’s soccer tournament, Stanford vs. San José State.  Stanford dominated as usual and it was awesome to see their crisp passes and great runs, but the highlight of the game was the little boy behind me asking his dad about the difference between girls soccer and boys soccer.

“Daddy, why do girls have forwards and boys have strikers?”

Unfortunately just at the moment Stanford almost scored and the stadium erupted in cheers so I didn’t hear the response, but I giggled pretty hard regardless.
