Soccer Social


Congratulations! It is Wednesday and after today you can practically smell the weekend in the air. To celebrate, lets recap the soccer social scene of the past week. You deserve it. Brek is back again. That man just knows how to gram. The NWSL crowned a champion. We got a sneak peak into how CR7 and the Great Bald Eagle, aka Tim Howard, travel in style, and more.

Let's get what seems like the weekly Brek Shea post out of the way early. He just has a great Instagram. There's nothing I can do about it. Look at this adorable pic of him and Phoenix. If I was in an Orlando City supporters group I would be feverishly designing an Order of the Shea Phoenix banner for the end of the year...get it?

Despite a rough end to the season, Seattle Reign FC member, Jess Fishlock is enjoying the offseason in Dubai. It looks fun but right now I'm more #dessertlife than #desertlife.

Dubai with the Boys ... @garethfishlock ... #DesertLife

The pink season has arrived... So far nothing too extravagant. However, this little photo shoot from the Sounders looks hilariously awesome. #boooocancer

Rave Green goes pink this month. Find out more on! #SoccerKicksCancer

If you were ever wondering how Cristiano Ronaldo travels prepare to be at once unsurprised and incredibly angry at the same time. CR7 really knows how to do luxury. This feels more like my experiences on planes...>>>>

CR7 wasn't the only star on the move this week. Check out Timmy Howard's plane swag. Maybe not quite as roomy as CR7's situation but kudos nonetheless. 

Flight mode...Next stop LAX #USMNT

Where was Mr. Howard headed you ask? He was on his way to training with the USMNT for the huuuuuge game against Mexico on 10/10. Here's a picture of him with 22 of his best buddies, aka the final roster for the game.

For the love of Tim Howards shiny dome piece can we get another #DosACero?

You know what week it is. See you on 10/10 #USAvMEX

The NWSL season came to an end last week as FC Kansas City claimed back to back championships with its win over the back to back losers Seattle Reign FC. 

Amy Rodriguez had the header that put KC up 1-0 for good and when you think about it, she has had a pretty great summer...

When you thought your summer couldn't get any better #champions #clubandcountry #NWSL #USWNT
