Orlando, FL - Orlando Pride fan Angelica Browning admitted that she spent the last 15 minutes of Extra Time during the Portland Thorns - Western New York Flash NWSL playoff game licking the virtual tears of Thorns fans as the Thorns lost in the first round of the NWSL playoffs.
"HOW DO YOU LIKE THAT!" repeatedly yelled Browning at the television while girlfriend Monica Dawes calmly read a book in the corner with ear plugs in. "Get out... GET OUT! I drink your tears!"
According to Ms. Dawes, Browning is frequently exuberant during soccer games, but especially during Pride games or when the Thorns lose.
"There's just something about that team, and about that fanbase that rubs her the wrong way," stated Ms Dawes. "She really seems to enjoy watching them lose. Not as much as she likes to watch the Pride win, but sometimes I wonder if those things are reversed. I had to draw the line, though, when she tried to lick the television screen. That was a bridge too far."
Reportedly, while Browning has a full grasp of the need for strong fan groups in women's soccer, the over reliance of the NWSL on the Portland Thorns drives her crazy.
"I just want a strong league, so I can hate all the teams equally. But Portland.... well, they make it easy. And I'm glad they lost... really, really glad."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Browning takes Ms. Dawes out for a nice dinner as a method of apologizing to her for making her sit through the, "longest soccer game ever".
