Woman signs for Mexico men's team

"A woman footballer is joining a national men's league side in Mexico - a move which would be a first in the sport in North and Central America.

Striker Maribel Dominguez - who has scored 42 goals in 43 games for the national women's team - has signed for Celaya, a club official confirmed. "

- courtsey of BBC News...

Personally I think that this is amazing news! a sport that for everywhere else in the world is considered soley a mans sport is either a) pulling an amazing publicity stunt, or b) an amazing feat of bravery by the mexican football team. Now admittedly this isn't the first time that a woman has been wooed to play with the big boys, but irrespective of that...her scoring is still pretty freakin amazing
