Ironwoman Kristine Lilly Retires!

The last remaining player from the U.S. teams that transformed women’s soccer from a fringe college sport into an international phenomenon announced Wednesday that she is retiring at 39. Her 352 appearances is an international record, and she is both the youngest and oldest player to score for the U.S. She is second only to Mia Hamm in both goals scored (130) and assists (105).  We salute you Ms. Lilly.
