Ever wonder what it would be like to share a car ride with one of your biggest sports idols? A few fans of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team got the chance to find out on Saturday when the players had to hitch rides back to their hotel.
The women’s soccer team had a practice session at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla., on Saturday ahead of their game against Brazil on Sunday. They had wrapped things up and were preparing to head back to the hotel when they found out their team bus had broken down.
Instead of waiting around for it to get fixed, members of the team carpooled back to their hotel with a few fans who were more than willing to give up shotgun for their soccer heroes.
Check out photos of the once-in-a-lifetime experience below.
Our bus broke down at the stadium. Option A: Hitchhike with fans. Option B: Wait. What do you think we did? http://t.co/ntqwBIVHFp—
