    So I ask the American commentators, please stop announcing that Landon Donovan is the “all-time U.S. leading goal scorer.” He is not. With 57 international goals, he’s not even in the Top Five.

    The all-time U.S. leading goal scorer is Abby Wambach, with 167 goals, followed by Mia Hamm (158), Kristine Lilly (130), Michelle Akers (105) and Tiffeny Milbrett (100). In fact, Abby Wambach is the all-time leading goal scorer in the world, among all soccer players, male or female.

    NOT ONLY are the all-time leading goal scorers women, but the US Women’s National Team has MEDALED in EVERY SINGLE WORLD CUP since it was introduced for women in 1991 (two first, one second, three third place finishes).

    Sooo thanks for that 3rd place finish in NINETEEN-THIRTY (1930, notatypo), USMNT. Take all the seats, ESPN announcers, and see how it’s done next summer. Also: Google. It takes 3 seconds to garner an education on a topic about which you clearly know very little.

  2. Such a great time celebrating our friend’s love on the 4th - and remembering all the reasons I love this guy so much.

  3. Hi!

    There have been quite a few new people around here lately (I’m assuming most of you came from Kim?!), so I thought I’d break my radio silence and do a quick intro.

    I’m Megan. I live in Los Angeles with my husband, DJ. (That’s us in Vegas a couple of weeks ago.)

    Up until last March, I worked in the advertising industry. Enough was enough, so after 7 years, I quit: we got married, travelled, and now I’m basically a Real Housewife - with less house, money, and drama, and more volunteering and working with kids.

    I used to post all the time, but I’ve been dealing with personal stuff for a few months. I made all my posts private and haven’t really said much, but I’m still reading and supporting and celebrating the great people I “know” here.

    I love reading, cooking, concerts at the Hollywood Bowl (Billy Joel tonight!), and spending way too much time lounging by the pool or at the beach with friends.

    I apply sunscreen like a maniac (every 30 minutes!), wonder every day when we’ll know where that Malaysian Airlines plane is, fall for every tv show that gets cancelled, and have whatever the opposite of resting bitch face is.

    Tell me about yourself! I’m going through now and checking you all out. Someday, I’ll be back to posting regularly (nonsense and all). I promise.


  4. 2013: a year spent celebrating true love, supportive families, and genuine friendships.

    2014: a year to put Megan first and give less of my time to people who don’t really appreciate it.
