WNT Sep 21, 2011
Going to Nike after school to see the WNT, meet some players and get some autographs? Life is good.
The U.S. WNT held its training on the campus of the Nike World Headquarters today in front of a huge crowd of Nike employees, friends and famlies and probably a lot of friends of families. As has been the case with almost every WNT practice during the two-game "Celebration Series" the atmosphere was electric as there were more people at training than the WNT probably got a games when the program started back in 1986. That's some progress right there.
Prior to practice, U.S. head coach Pia Sundhage and Abby Wambach answered some questions from Nike CEO Mark Parker (it's not often that the CEO conducts on on-field Q&A!) and the players signed a ton of autographers after the training.
Nike CEO Mark Parker chats with Pia and Abby. And yes, Pia sang again.
Special thanks to everyone at Nike for putting together another fun event for the WNT on what was a stunningly beautiful Northwest day.
