Here are three seemingly unrelated personal things that are bizarrely converging on the blog today! 1) After a 4-year hiatus, Laurel returned to soccer this spring and is loving it. 2) Through the soccer program, a Boston Breakers player joins Laurel's practice each week. 3) Laurel adores mangos (like, gobbles them with abandon!). Bizarre convergence = thanks to the National Mango Board, I’ve got Boston Breakers tickets to give away to one lucky reader!
OK, what gives with the mangos you ask? Mangos apparently are the official fruit of the National Women’s Soccer League. They're loaded with over 20 vitamins and minerals and I particularly love that their sweetness deems them dessert-worthy but without all the junk. We load up on fresh mangos in season, and in the winter, buy them frozen, which Laurel often eats straight out of the freezer or in smoothies.
So this brings me back to the Breakers! I think it’s especially important for girls to see female athletes in action (especially since broadcast sports focus so heavily on male athletes) so how awesome is it that the Breakers are right here in our backyard? If you’d like to win this 4-pack of tickets (~$100 value) to the Friday, May 22, 2015 match between the Boston Breakers and Sky Blue FC, simply post a comment below by noon Wednesday May 20, 2015 to enter to win! Good luck!
