  • What They're Saying

    "They were all so nice and really funny. When we got to their hotel, we all took a picture together and they thanked us once again for the ride. There were some fans waiting at the hotel and Abby said something like, 'Sorry guys, we aren't allowed to take pictures or sign autographs, but we can take a picture with these guys 'cause they are family.' Then as we drove away. I just screamed and said, 'Oh my God!' I couldn't believe it."

    -- Carley Painter, a 14-year-old U.S. women's national team fan who picked up Abby Wambach, Hope Solo and Carli Lloyd after the women's national team bus broke down after practice Saturday at the Florida Citrus Bowl and the players hitched rides back to their hotel. Painter's cell phone lit up with texts from friends after Solo tweeted a photo of the players and Painter's friend  Serrena Cardoso in the back of her car. (New York Post)
