Quote of the day: Anson Dorrance on Mia Hamm

This is a women’s soccer site I enjoy. I figured I’d share it with you all.

“When Mia came along, our game was nothing and nowhere. When she left it, it was something and significant. Mia was a part of that transition. And every little girl wanted to be Mia. She had almost a Beatles-like presence whenever she was in the stadium.”

– Anson Dorrance, who coached Mia Hamm at the University of North Carolina and in the 1991 World Cup
