Soccer Social


This week in Soccer Social was a busy one with MLS wrapping up its regular season and the USWNT continuing its victory tour. Also, with halloween just around the corner we got a sneak peek at what Alejandro Bedoya is wearing on the big night. Stuart Holden calls for the news team to assemble. The Red Bulls celebrated another Supporters Shield for the trophy cabinet. Abby Wambach made a big announcement after hanging with POTUS and much more...

With the recent addition of the Orlando Pride to the NWSL the trash talk has begun. This enterprising fan of the Washington Spirit seized an opportunity to one up the new kid on the block.

In classic NWSL social media fashion the official Orlando Pride account let the Washington Spirit know they had noticed this slight and the Spirit promptly went straight to the hater blockers. Spirit 1 - Pride 0

With Piers Morgan spouting off about everything being horrible, as he is prone to do, Stuart Holden assembles the American soccer news team for an epic battle. Imagine Lalas, Twellman, Howard, Martino, and Holden in an Anchorman style brawl against Piers and his cronies. If only celebrity deathmatch was still on TV.

With their 2-1 win over the Chicago Fire on Sunday the New York Red Bulls celebrated their second Supporters Shield in three years.

Twist and shout. #rbny

It would seem each team has a player that is responsible for taking the team selfies. For RBNY that player is Dax McCarty. He nails it again with this locker room pic featuring the Supporters Shield.

The Columbus Crew are also flying high heading into the playoffs after a 5-0 thrashing of D.C. United over the weekend. This post from Frankie Hejduk confirms what I have been suspecting for some time now. He lives in the bowels of MAPFRE stadium! The man truly bleeds black and yellow.

The USWNT had their date at the White House in celebration of their World Cup victory and snapped the obligatory selfie. How long do you think Obama will reign as the king of the presidential selfie? Could Hillary or Trump dethrone him?

After cutting herself out of the presidential selfie just minutes earlier, Abby Wambach released a statement announcing she will retire in December. She will go down as one of the all time greatest to ever play the game. Thanks Abby!

Over in France, Alejandro Bedoya gave us a look at what his crew was wearing for Halloween... Don't you think Miguel Herrera would make a great Wario?

Finally, a huge congratulations goes out to AJ and Megan DeLaGarza for the birth of their baby girl Noelle. Their late son Luca DeLaGarza will always be remembered. #LucaKnowsHeart

Happy and healthy baby girl. Born this morning at 8:28 and Luca's birthday was 8/28. Always with us.
