Portugal's Hangover

Leagues: Not as easy as they look

The Women's Professional Soccer (WPS), the 5-team American league that just finished out its 3rd season, cancelled its 2012 season today while holding out hope for a return in 2013 or beyond.

Other international women's soccer matches have also demonstrated an impressively broad level of popularity. Last summer's Women's World Cup final, […]
