"I feel so sporty right now," I texted the group chat on Saturday night, with a photo of me watching the Matildas vs France game.
It was a pathetically proud moment for me.
I've always wanted to be that person – you know, the cool, chill girl who watches and understands sport – but I'm not. I like TV shows and movies, and I'm okay with that.
Then the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup began.
Watch the Matildas documentary here. Post continues below.
For the past few weeks, you haven't been able to have a conversation without someone bringing up the Matildas.
They are on every news site and in everyone's social media feeds – they are at the centre of the cultural zeitgeist, and rightly so.
And I pretended to know what was going on. I've previously interviewed Katrina Gorry, so that's what I had to contribute to the conversation.
But then it got to a point where it hit me that this is more than just a sports tournament. It's a huge moment in Australian history.
These women are playing for our country, dominating, and people are paying attention.
