Keep Hope (Solo) Alive: Dallas Still on the Short List to get Women's Pro Soccer Team

Speaking of soccer ...

Two years back there was talk of Dallas getting a Women's Professional Soccer franchise, whose roster would be filled out with players from the U.S. Women's National Team. And then ... nothing. But just yesterday, Sports Illustrated's Jeff Kassouf noted that the league, which has seen two teams fold in recent months, still hopes to expand, and Dallas and Los Angeles are "leading candidates" to get teams. Matter of fact, writes Kassouf: "Members of a potential ownership group seeking to bring a team to Dallas were in Pennsylvania two weeks ago to tour the Philadelphia Independence's facilities and talk more seriously about acquiring a 2012 expansion team."

Once again, Hope Solo's more than welcome. So too her brother.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
