Kickin' It
Kate Abdo, Clint Dempsey, Charlie Davies and Mo Edu welcome in the recently-crowned NWSL Championship MVP Midge Purce to talk about NJ/NY Gotham’s remarkable season, her reaction to Megan Rapinoe getting injured in her farewell game, and how being left off the USWNT’s World Cup roster changed her perspective on things. Midge shares her thoughts on the increased level of competition on the international stage, Carli Lloyd’s comments about players lacking focus, and the polarizing nature of being a female athlete. Then, Midge’s father, James, joins the crew to talk about raising a Harvard graduate, supporting his daughter’s love of soccer, and encouraging her to work twice as hard as everyone else.
