I still get verklempt when I look at this photo. And I will never forget where I was the moment Brandi Chastain scored that goal. As I recall, I bawled my eyes out despite the fact that I had never before given a moment’s thought to soccer. I was nevertheless and athlete and more importantly a woman. And I can’t remember the last time - before or since - that I saw a woman celebrating and being celebrated with such joy and thundering enthusiasm for being the very best at her chosen endeavor.
So grateful that the moment was captured. Hope to see it re-lived this summer! Go Team USA!!
