Female celebs support USWNT in equal pay fight

- Uzo Aduba, Jennifer Garner, Eva Longoria, Natalie Portman, and Jessica Chastain appeared at Sunday's friendly versus Belgium on behalf of Time's Up to support the USWNT's lawsuit over equal pay and playing conditions. Last week, LUNA Bar announced a $718,000 donation to close the pay gap, which is great, but something US Soccer should be doing.

- Underscoring how equal pay for the far, far more successful team is long overdue, the 1999 women's team was honored at halftime, and around 40 other past players were invited "to reunite and celebrate women’s sports and the long-time success of the U.S. Women’s National Team" ahead of the World Cup.

- The US won 6-0
