Hey it’s still Pride and I hope it’s still happy out there for you! I made you a Pop Culture Fix to increase your daily enjoyment at least!

+ Sam Kerr and Kristie Mewis are profiled and photographed in Gaffer for Pride and holy heck they are cute, cute, cute! You gotta click through and read it, just trust me! It’s like fan fiction but it’s real life: “If you didn’t know much about football and passed these two in the street or sat next to them in a pub, you wouldn’t think they’re some of the most well known names in the game. The chemistry they have surrounds them like an aura and the genuine love for each other oozes out in their body language.”

  1. Any chance of getting a regular column on the NWSL, which is about halfway through and very competitive this year?

    Also the Women’s World Cup kicks off at the end of July.

  2. NOT happy about the cancellation of Perry Mason! With the WGA (plus a potential SAG-AFTRA) strike and other developments in the streaming sphere, there are no guarantees that any given show would come back, and how. But still, what a bummer!
