I've missed her defensive skills, but the Thorns have made great improvement in that category this season. I do hope she continues to write...I've been thoroughly entertained by her wit.

Kendall's back, has played in at least the last two of the Thorns' pre-season games.  Didn't look so good against the U23s, but had a good game against the Houston Dash last weekend.  In the Dash game, she started and was subbed in for, in about the 60th minute, by -- another Pilot -- Ellie Boon!

I was out of town, so not at the game this past weekend, but I watched the game on YouTube, to see how Ellie did.  (Google YouTube Thorns v Dash)  I think she did really well -- no mistakes and a bunch of well connected passes.  Unfortunately, her chances of making the regular roster don't seem so good -- she's got Klingenberg and Kendall ahead of her at left D.  But, she may make the "taxi" squad.  She definitely looked like she can be an NWSL player.

I too was out of town and am glad to hear your assessment of Ellie's play. I hope to see her starting on an NWSL team some day soon.

Not a particularly well-played game or exciting game to watch, but the result was a W and the "Chamoionship."

Let's see, how many does that make for Christine here in Portland?

2002 Pilots, NCAA National Championship
2005 Pilots, NCAA National Championship
2013 Thorns, NWSL Championship
2017 Thorns, NWSL Championship

Probably one of the greatest athletes in modern Portland history, and a wonderful person too....we can claim her, can't we?

Christine, as you know, has fared pretty well with international competition as well.

I would expand your characterization to suggest that Christine is one of the greatest women's soccer players ever--maybe that is obvious. And, assuming you are referring to the U when you refer to "Portland," I find it hard to believe that there is a more accomplished athlete who played here than Christine, in a relative sense, of course. For my money, she is the number one Pilot athlete . . . that is not to slight the other fine athletes, greatly accomplished in their own rights, who have played on the Bluff, only to recognize how great Christine was and is. That she is, as you describe, a "wonderful person," doesn't hurt.

Just checked... Christine is #2 all-time on the international goal-scorers list with 168. She trails only Abby Wambach at 184.

Abby is retired now, but Christine is still active. Something tells me Canada will keep playing her until she decides to hang up her boots. It's possible she could one day pass Abby to become the #1 international goal scorer of all time.

(Worth noting - Tiffeny Milbrett is on that list at #15 with 100 international goals. Two of the top 15 goal scorers of all time are Pilots... not bad!)
