1. "There's a World Cup going on?"

YES. The 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup started on June 6 and is taking place in Canada for the very first time. With 24 teams competing, it's the biggest one yet.

2. “So who got you into this sport — was it your dad or your boyfriend?”

*Buries face in pillow*


3. "But the [insert other sporting event] is going on right now!"

Copa Americana, NBA Finals, etc. Well, yeah. That's some bad luck there because odds are every bar will be viewing those events and not the WWC.

4. "Women just aren't as tough as the male players."

6. "Oh Sydney Leroux — is she the hot one?"

She’s also earned over 50 caps with the senior national team and has a gold medal on her wall, but all right.

7. "OK, but all the football legends are men."

Hamm, Wambach, Marta — shall I continue?

8. "Playing on turf is NOT THAT BAD, the players are being whiney."

Kiss my astroturf.

9. "Watching women play just isn't as exciting, ya know?"

10. "Nobody cares about the women's game."

Tell that to her, then.
