Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

I don't think there's any collection of athletes more likable than the members of the The U.S. Women's National Team. Case in point: The team was in Orlando, Fla., this weekend to play an exhibition match against Brazil when their team bus broke down after a practice session. Instead of waiting around for the bus to get fixed, a few of the players caught a ride back to their hotel with some fans.

The picture above was tweeted out by Hope Solo, who piled into a car with Abby Wambach, Carli Lloyd, and one assuredly ecstatic young fan. Sydney Leroux and Alex Morgan hitched a ride in a different car, but also made sure to commemorate the occasion on Twitter:


We can only hope that the soccer moms driving those cars had a few extra orange slices and Rice Krispie treats to share with their new friends.
