Here's the story... which I mention because that game/incident was one of the vivid memories of my sportswriting life.
I had just been in the sports department a few days when my editor comes over and asks if I'm free to get down to Pasadena to cover the Women's World Cup final. I decided then that I was really going to like this job.
The assignment was great, the team was wonderful. But then came the game 0-0 through regulation, 0-0 through overtime. So I thinking, Well, this is fun, but how am I going to write 700 words on a scoreless game?"
Then Brandi Chastain hits the winning shot, whips off her shirt and suddenly there was plenty to write about.
