w/ WNT midfielder Kristine Lilly


Kristine Lilly may or may not need some sort of therapy. Regardless, with 25 prompts on topics both easy and tough, we play psychiatrist to get a candid look inside the mind of the 30-year-old U.S. Women's National Team "Iron Woman".

The native of tiny Wilton, Conn., has been around the world more than a few times as one of the all-time legends of women's soccer. Lilly has been part of the storied Team USA since 1987, and has somehow managed to remain one of the top players in the world 15 years later. Her resume reads: Two-time Women's World Cup champion, two-time Olympic medal winner and first soccer player in the world (man or woman) to reach the 200-cap plateau, among other things. Is there anything Kristine Lilly hasn't done? Wait, did someone say WUSA championship?
