International Soccer Moms

This morning at breakfast at the team hotel, where several of the teams stay every year for the Algarve Cup, U.S. Soccer Moms Christie Rampone and Kate Markgraf, kids in tow, ran into Norwegian Soccer Mom Solveig Gulbrandsen, one of the Norway's top players for quite a while now. Solveig has a baby boy, who was a bit shy meeting Rylie Rampone and Keegan Markgraf. Rylie tried to introduce herself, but since she speaks no Norwegian and Keegan still just speaks baby, the meeting was brief. It's good to see players from other teams having babies and still continuing their international careers, which was virtually unheard of before the U.S. players started having kids in the mid-1990s.
