The USWNT Got Their Obama Phone Call on Tuesday (Video)


The best part of winning a championship in an American league or as an American national team is getting “the call” from the President. Well, that might not be true. Beating up on Japan early in the first half, then lifting that trophy at the end of the match were both probably better parts for the USWNT, but that presidential phone call has gotta be a high point in any athlete’s life.

The most important man in your home country would like to say congratulations, thanks, and that he’s proud of what you accomplished.

No jokes. That’s just a cool feeling.

Here’s the video of that call and the USWNT reaction. Good vibes all around:

Ok. That’s enough of that, Obama. Time to get back to pissing off half the country and most of the world.
