All the teams avoided the dreaded scoreless tie in the opening full weekend of WPS games. While some goals were scored by players who had even diehards reaching for the game program, other names were instantly recognizable to many. England's Kelly Smith scored for the Boston Breakers in a losing effort against FC Gold Pride. Both American veteran Tiffeny Milbrett and Japan's Afro-sporting Eriko Arakawa notched for FC Gold Pride. Another American, Lindsey Tarpley, had the winning goal for the Chicago Red Stars against St. Louis Athletica.

Instead, it might be a piece focused on how Marta could easily surpass David Beckham's soccer achievements in L.A. and bring a soccer title to the city


*yawn*...Beckham is a has-been. He was 5 years past his prime before joining the MLS. Anybody with an atom of knowledge about football would have known that he was brought in only to draw the crowd...not to draw a title. And no, playing well for Ingurland doesn't count...

Thus the venues for the seven WPS teams are smaller. That way, a crowd of 6,000 or so can be deemed a sellout.


Don't want to bring the WNBA into this but...hmmm...
