Sunday fun

I know we in the US are in the midst of basketball madness, but I thought I would share this pic from a friend.
It's from Preston, England, 1920, and features the captains of two women's football (US soccer) teams greeting each other with a kiss. Not sure how historically accurate it is (those seem like pretty short shorts--even for the roaring 20s!) or whether this was truly a tradition. Friend send it to the GF because she plays soccer in a league that was some sports(wo)manship issues and to me because, well I like women's sport history.

Captains' kissing tradition (?)
