Furthering women's soccer like no magazine has done before

Happy Thanksgiving from Our Game Magazine

All of us at Our Game Magazine would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. This is what we’re thankful for this year …

Tiffany Weimer: “I’m thankful for my unmatched creative humor, good looks, soccer talent and of course my incredibly modest sense of self.”

Bobby Weimer: “I am thankful my sister will be too comatose by food tomorrow to remember to yell at me about the magazine.”

Khaled El-Ahmad
: “I am thankful for players and individuals that luv the game the way they do. Rarely do you find the same player evolvement as you do in women’s soccer. The vision and mission (and) the players involved in Our Game Magazine have taken upon themselves is inspiring not just for the fans themselves but also the game. Where in any other sport are current professional athletes taking matters in their hand, spending their free time to improve the game they love. Answer is: nowhere? This is unique, more specially than you can imagine, and I wish more athletes and people took responsibility for the profession they love to do/play. For me that is soccer luv!”

Leslie Osborne: “I am thankful for so much in my life. My loved ones being healthy and so close to me in my life. I am grateful for the opportunities and people I continue to encounter and experience in my life.”

Alyssa Naeher: “I’m thankful for my friends and family.”

Meagan McCray: “This year I’m thankful for the soccer gods keeping me healthy and giving me the opportunity to play my first minutes professionally. And within those first minutes, letting me get absolutely creamed with three goals against (Philadelphia) in a matter of 15 minutes. But on a serious note, I’m truly thankful to be living out a dream with the support of my friends and family and cherishing all the greatness and learning from all the challenges that come about during it.”

Gloria Averbuch: “Among the obvious (like good health and the dream of world peace), I am thankful for the “beautiful game” that has given my children and my family a platform for physical fitness, camaraderie, ambition, success, joy, and life lessons. And I am grateful for the increasing ability to watch the game for the sheer joy of it, and to “stay out of it” as my daughters age, and my soccer mom role fades into a mere memory–thankfully!”

Kat Galsim: “I am thankful for the turkeys who used to chase me around my grandfather’s farm. They taught me that, sometimes, farm animals are more powerful than humans.”

Michelle Chang: “I’m thankful for my teammates who are the 48 best friends that anybody can have.”

Ryan Wood: “I’m thankful to have been given the opportunity to work with such great people, to write about the best sport in the world. I’m extremely thankful that there are 11 Dunkin’ Donuts locations on my 20-minute ride to work.”

Karie Mikel: “I am thankful to be playing a part in Our Game.”

And from our two Canadian writers, who actually celebrated Thanksgiving Day on October 11 as everyone in Canada does …

Carmelina Moscato: “I am thankful for Americans (in general), Tiffany’s sarcasm, Leslie’s fashion sense and meatballs!”

Ciara McCormack: “I’m thankful for being Canadian, getting to have someone as great as Carm from the same country and for getting to celebrate Thanksgiving and eat our turkey six weeks before Americans.”

    I’m Thankful for womens soccer, showing me that there are professional athletes out there who still play for the love of the game and are not driven by greed. For their tenacity to continue, even though it may seem that the country doesn’t care. For their continuing to be great role models for every little girl out there. And, for the millions of fans who support them. May our numbers continue to grow until soccer becomes the dominant sport in the USA. Keep up the good fight girls. AMEN!
