I'm excited to dust off the #WorldCupWives hashtag this summer to give a shout out to the Women's World Cup. A couple months ago, Jeff and Billy (Katie's and my husbands) announced they would be launching #WorldCupHusbands to follow along the tournament while commenting on how cute the players are.
Obviously, I would have loved to see this happen. However, I do think they may not exactly remember our content from last summer. I have no memory of cuteness commentary. Although, I did take this photo - precious!
But similar to the men's tournament last year, I am significantly less interested in the soccer part of the World Cup as I am all the hype surrounding the players and the teams.
I must admit, though, that it's been harder to find the online hype this go-round. And while less foolishness online may be nice for players, I hope one day we can achieve "hype equality" - with dance-offs, professional biters, and memes heard 'round the world.
But here are 5 of my favorite articles online to help you learn more about the Women's World Cup regarding all the things except soccer.

Bless you, Panini, but you really screwed up some of these Women's World Cup stickers
I am on a sticker hiatus. Billy mentioned Panini stickers for the Copa America and the Women's World Cup. But no. I need four years to recover from last year. But if you are wielding sticker prowess this summer, you may enjoy this article on some of the sticker faux pas.
