Soccer Social


Soccer Social has arrived! I hope everyone was able to navigate their Wednesday without their usual Soccer Social fix. Next week we will be back to our normal schedule so breathe easy.

This week we had a few big events. The wedding we've all been waiting for, CONCACAF Cup, an Earthquake b-day, Crew babies, and more...

Team social accounts usually tend to keep tabs on players birthdays and they can sometimes get boring but the Earthquakes celebration for Matias Perez Garcia had just that little extra photoshop that you need...

Join us in wishing a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Matias Perez Garcia! 🎂🎉 #Quakes74

Wednesday night featured the Democrat Presidential Primary Debate and Sky Blue FC tried to get a late entrant into the party.  Perhaps an O'Hara/Sanders ticket would do well?

Can Kelley count on your vote?

Haters of man buns will be devastated to see that Kei Kamara has begun to influence Sporting KC Goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum's newborn baby boy, Gibson. I don't care what you say, man buns are lame. Bald is beautiful!!!!!!!

Just met baby Gruenebaum, we had a good talk bout starting his #ManBun early. 🍍 @gbaum30

If you have been following Soccer Social or either Sydney Leroux or Dom Dwyer you knew this day was coming. Well, they finally tied the knot and if you were hoping to woo either one of them time has run out. A stylish rooftop KC wedding seemed to fit the Leroux-Dwyer chic and they certainly had quite a guest list. Unfortunately, I just wasn't able to make it down there that weekend.

By far the best day of my life.

Ashlyn Harris is looking TOO suave in this one. Staring right into your soul while rocking the fresh suit.

Such a beautiful wedding!! #DwyerLerouxSayIDo

Womp Womp Womp. That's the best way I can describe the CONCACAF Cup. 

No doubt about who these two are here for. #USA #USMNT #USAvMEX #OneNationOneTeam #concacafcup

After thoroughly dismantling an outmatched American team the Mexican Federation's Twitter account had a bit of fun at the United State's expense...

Hopefully America can get some sweet sweet revenge in World Cup Qualifying. Similar to an elephant, I just don't think Michael Bradley forgets.

Mexico deserves the party they certainly ended up having that night. They dominated the game and hopefully they have a great time spending an extra summer in...Russia. Did you ever think, maybe we actually won?
