#TBT History of Women in Football

European football resumes today–Portugal vs. Poland.

But not until 12:30.

So, to kill time (and to avoid taking a summer snooze and risk missing the match *yawn*), I spent some time idly looking at sites and articles about the history of football–in particular, women in football. (soccer)
