The day after winning Group B at the 2012 CONCACAF U-17 Women's Championship, the U.S. players got a little treat...a trip to the mall to see The Avengers. With the games coming in quick succession, the U.S. team has mostly been bunkered down in the hotel resting, recovering and doing homework, but with two days between the group finale and the semifinal, the players headed to what was a very nice mall in Guatemala City to take in the superhero movie, after which, they got to walk around the mall a bit. And what do most teenage girls like more than walking around a mall? Not much. A few even made some purchases.
The Avengers got great reviews from the U-17s, most of whom seemed to have The Hulk as their favorite superhero, followed by Ironman. Go figure?
Hmmmm? What snacks to get for the movie?
It was popcorn for Lizzy Raben and Brit Basinger! There also was caramel-covered popcorn.
Note to U.S. theatres: Get caramel-covered popcorn.
Movie time! Plus, sitting in a dark theatre with your legs up is good rest for soccer players.
