We’re Catching Up!

Sooner or later, we will catch up with all these new-fangled technology thingamabobs, really!

In that vein . . . start following us on Twitter!  @sswnau.

And, here’s some food for thought:

On Wednesday, some of the top stars of Women’s Soccer (aka football everywhere else) filed a discrimination suit against FIFA, the governing body of World Cup Soccer.  The offense?  FIFA has agreed to let Canada use artificial turf in the stadiums for the Women’s World Cup next summer.  This is the first time FIFA has allowed artificial turf to be used in any of their premiere tournaments, for either men or women.

For the full story go here, herehere or here.

What do you think?  Is this discrimination?  If this were happening in the US, would Title IX be applicable?  Should it be?
