  • USWNT Roster Snubs & NWSL Pookie of the Week

    23 MAG 2024 · Lianna and Vienna are full of feelings about the first USWNT roster of the Emma Hayes era. They are over the moon to see some new, and deserving additions, such as NWSL Iron Woman Sam Staab. But with this roster come some surprising exclusions, and they can't help but wonder, what else does Lynn Williams, all time leading goal scorer of the NWSL, need to do to go to the Olympic games in Paris this summer? They also discuss some exciting news from FIFA this week! Then it is time to dive into the latest weekend of NWSL games. Lianna recaps her experience at the Washington Spirit game where the Spirit won 4-2 over Angel City FC, and Trinity Rodman recorded a brace. Lianna and Vienna felt treated this weekend to see yet another revenge goal, this time from Ella Stevens against her former club in the Gotham FC vs Chicago Red Stars game. Plus, Lianna and Vienna have a new award that they would like to crown this week: The NWSL Pookie of the Week, They go through their predictions for the upcoming NWSL weekend before international players report for international duty. The biggest question of the weekend: Portland Thorns and Orlando Pride, two of the strongest teams in the NWSL, will be going head-to-head, but can the Thorns end the Pride's 10-game unbeaten streak?  Don't forget to live you best life <3

  • Humble FC and The Papa Smurfs Stay On Top

    4 APR 2024 · Lianna and Vienna start this episode by addressing some recent news coming out regarding Korbin Albert, of the USWNT and PSG, and some hurtful posts she had reposted on her TikTok. Homophobia and transphobia has no place in women's football, and The Big Game is commited to fostering a safe and inclusive environment for all football fans.  Then, they dive straight into another chaotic NWSL weekend. It has been a surprising first few weeks with Humble FC (aka Kansas City Current) and the Papa Smurfs (aka the Chicago Red Stars), finding themselves in the 1st and 2nd spots after ending the 2023 season at the bottom of the table. Lianna and Vienna also recap their first experience seeing NC Courage play in person, and they had too much fun in Courage Country!  Vienna was absolutely on fire this episode with the predictions, but only time will tell how accurate her predictions for the next weekend of games.  We will be back next week to recap SheBelieves! Chat with y'all then :)
