Yesterday was Pia Sundhage’s last day as the manager of the United States Women’s National Team. The USWNT sent her out in style with a 6-2 win over Australia. There are many reasons to laud her tenure as coach, but this is what I believe to be the most important: a capacity crowd came to watch and to send Pia Sundhage off with gratitude, admiration, and love.
Thank you Pia, for giving us our team back. We will miss you.
