The US women’s national team won the World Cup on Sunday with talent, swagger, poise and personality.
Today’s ticker-tape parade down New York City’s Canyon of
Heroes Heroines drew a great, enthusiastic crowd.
A large contingent of Westporters — young soccer players, siblings, moms, and others enthralled by this fantastic team — joined the festivities.
Among the most excited: these 4 Staples soccer players.
Mayor Bill de Blasio praised “America’s team.”
Captain Megan Rapinoe explained it more colorfully: “This group is so resilient, is so tough, has such a sense of humor — is just so bad-ass.
“We have pink hair and purple hair. We have tattoos, dreadlocks. We’ve got white girls and black girls, and everything in between. Straight girls and gay girls. Hey!”
Congratulations — and thanks for being role models for us all!
