Orlando, FL - Orlando Pride fan Theresa Sanchez stated that she hoped the new tattoo she was receiving that displayed her passion for the local NWSL side wouldn’t eventually turn into a reminder of the nature of another poorly run and defunct women’s soccer league.
“I understand the danger of getting something that would rep a team that may not exist in a few years,” stated Sanchez to The Nutmeg News. “However, I know that my passion for Orlando and the Pride isn’t going anywhere even if the league collapses because the executives that supposedly are in charge don’t know what they are doing..”
According to friends, Sanchez decided to go ahead with the piece on her leg despite their warnings of seeing multiple women’s leagues in the United States fail.
“She said that she didn’t care,” stated good friend Paula Gutierrez. “She said that if it failed that she would try to choose to remember the good times she had with everyone rather than the horribly inept league executives..”
However, despite this bravado, Sanchez admitted her doubts saying, “I know this is a dangerous proposition because I know someone that almost got an FC Kansas City tattoo.I truly believe that If I love my team, then I love this tattoo no matter what. Worst case scenario I end up doing a cover-up with something Prince/Purple themed.”
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Sanchez hopes that the recent World Cup will draw attention to the league.
