Why Men Can't Buy the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team Jerseys

It is official. It is irrefutable.

The U.S. women's national soccer team is the best in the world.

I mean all Americans

because soccer is all about pageantry

And Nike, which is the official sponsor of both the Men's and Women's national soccer team, took in pre-orders just prior to the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup.

But shortly after the pre-orders were sold out, Nike had to cancel all the orders. Why?

The answer lies behind the two stars you see above the crest.

These stars represent the number of World Cups that the U.S. women's national team has won (1991, 1995). Now after winning the 2015 World Cup, another star was added to their jerseys.

But of course, the men's national soccer team does not have any stars above the crest, because well...

they haven't won a World Cup yet.

because it could give the false impression that the men's team have won those World Cups

What is this nonsense?

What should the men and boys, who made up 61% of the 13.5 million viewers that tuned in for the 2011 World Cup finals do?

A male fan should be able to wear an Alex Morgan uniform or Abby Wambach's uniform.


And who cares if the women's national team won three World Cups and the men's national team hasn't won any?

In the end, playing like a girl means you're a badass.
