Where to spend the night of the United States Women's National Team's first game of the 2019 World Cup? It had to be PORTLAND, Oregon. Home of the Thorns, who averaged an astounding 17,000 fans a game in 2018. 
So Tuesday, June 11, we will take the stage at the Aladdin Theater with Thorns stars, including GFOP Meghan Klingenberg to break down the U.S.'s game against Thailand and examine what Portland is doing right that the rest of the nation can learn from. Come and join us, raise a glass, and toast America’s Women’s Football City of the Future.

PS. Yesterday, we launched Men in Blazers American Legend Series, Presented by Budweiser, a glut of Podcasts and digital content that celebrates the USWNT as they don armor and prepare to defend the USA's World Cup in France. The conversations are about more than football. They are about individual players' distinctly unique personal narrative, from their childhood to the present. They also touch on issues such as race, the fight for gender equality and the future of women's football. It was truly an honor and a privilege to sit down with Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe, Lindsey Horan and Crystal Dunn. Those interviews will drop beginning next week and continue in the lead up to the World Cup. But before we hear from members of the current team, we wanted to look to the past and doff our caps to a legend of the game. Briana Scurry. We caught up with the USWNT hero last weekend in St. Louis before the team's 5 - 0 demolition of New Zealand to talk about her footballing journey, the greatest penalty shootout in American soccer history, and her legacy both as a women's football pioneer and African American. LISTEN HERE

PPS. We have also just helped launch The Wayne Rooney Podcast, alongside the English legend. The podcast premiered last week and, despite Rog's involvement, somehow managed to hit No. 1 on the iTunes charts. Episode 1 features Wayne and Rog talking about Wayne's memories of the 2008 Champions League Final, the current state of Manchester United, DC United's flying start to the season, and why Wayne can't stand houseguests. Subscribe, Rate, Review The Wayne Rooney Podcast on iTunes.
