Saturday Night Live at Providence Park. Star studded and hella fun! The Portland Thorns made a two-goal comeback to tie the Chicago Red Stars 2-2 on Saturday night. HOLY HOT DAMN—WE GOT OURSELVES A PLAYOFF PRESS! This was the Thorns first home game in over a month and fans were absolutely MANIACAL about their return. RED SMOKE MADNESS!

Nothing, and I mean nothing, fuels a star-studded forceful female sporting event than a handful of HARD CRIES WHILE WATCHING Steel Magnolias. OMG, when they are at the graveyard and M'Lnn loses her shit. I CAN'T KEEP IT TOGETHER! And neither can the RED STARS.
