Date: Thu, 9 Jan 1997 08:05:12 -0500 From: Wayne Glowka Subject: Soccer Moms in Georgia A friend who works for the Georgia Soccer Association in Atlanta called me last night to talk about a proposal for a book celebrating the 30-year history of soccer in Georgia. I casually asked if he had what the word of the year was, and he responded with some excitement about seeing the news about "soccer mom" in the Atlanta Constitution and the Wall Street Journal. He was planning to mention the WOTY in his book proposal even before I informed him of my professional affiliation with this marvelous learned society.
