In that quarter since the half way point the Boston Breakers have jumped from the bottom of the standings to possibly being in 2nd place, that depends on the outcome of their game tonight versus the Philadelphia Independence.  The other team at the bottom the Beat, made a run and have closed the gap in points.

This week, the Boston Breakers wore their pink kits during the game against the Washington Freedom, officially launching Puma’s Project Pink. Taking inspiration from this partnership, this week’s chat questions will focus on what the WPS, the teams, the coaches, and the players do in and outside their communities.

Bonus: We ask that during the chat, you tag any tweet that deals specifically with Project Pink with the #projectpink hashtag. Your mention of the tag results in a $1 donation from Puma in the fight against breast cancer, and builds awareness for the cause. Check out this video for Puma’s Project Pink to learn more.

  • What are your thoughts on the pink kits?
