WNT Feb 23, 2010
Today was the 21st birthday for U.S. midfielder/forward Casey Nogueira. It was somewhat uneventful, except that at the end of training instead of saying, "One, two, three...team!" the team sang, "One, two, three...Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you..." Well, you know how the rest goes. She also got a pretty cool soccer ball type cake at dinner (see below, sorry Blackberry photo) and some of the older players took her out for crepes and ice cream. It would have been cool if her big day was on game day tomorrow, but with the WNT is not a bad place for a soccer player to celebrate her birthday.
Casey did admit that when she woke up this morning that she actually felt older "because my back hurt."
