4, 1.5, 2, and 20. These numbers have been running through my mind lately and here is why…
4 – It’s been 4 days since my 25th birthday. Twenty-five, wow what a milestone. A quarter of a century. Halfway through my 20s. Alright, I better stop before I start getting down.

After her two-goal performance led the Western New York Flash to a 3-0 win over magicJack on Sunday, Flash midfielder and captain Caroline Seger earned WPS Player of the Week honors for gameweek 7. The Swedish international becomes the fourth Flash player in a row to win the award.

Several teams were without their national team players last week, but for the most part, all of those players return for what could be the next to last WPS game they play prior to heading off to the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Germany. The U.S. Women’s National team beat Japan twice this past week, but lost Lindsay Tarpley to an ACL injury. Tarpley will miss the World Cup and the remainder of the WPS season with magicJack. Other notables on the injured list this week: Heather Mitts (Atlanta) and Christie Rampone (magicJack). (more…)
