Alex and Tobin being the cute couple
But then Heif it’s like “Girls people are watching you, just act like friends or they’re gonna know that you’re a couple..”
Alex and Tobin be like “ DUDE they already know…” And keep being the cute couple🙊😂❤️
I’ve been meaning to answer this bc a lot of people have asked, but it’s kind of a long explanation so bear with me.
(This is all without me knowing) so basically my friend’s mom wanted to get me inspired and stuff since I’m going through some tough times rn, so over the course of 2 months or so she worked her connections and had a friend who works for US soccer. I had written this essay/letter thing like around the time right after the World Cup where I talked about each individual player and why/how they inspired me and stuff, and I guess my mom had sent it to her on the DL and eventually it got to the team. Well then Kelley read it and was apparently planning to come surprise me at my house and hang out with me for the day after camp, but it ended up not working bc she had physical therapy and stuff. (I didn’t know any of this until later on). So then instead they invited my family and I to come to training the day before the SD game (I was supposed to be going to the game the next day with my friend anyway). So my parents told me this, and of course after seeing all the open trainings with large attendances, I’m expecting it to be just like that; me and 300 others along a fence, battling for autographs and selfies and stuff. I thought maybe i might get to meet KO briefly but that’s it. This is all my family is expecting but we just go with it. So I get there and the coordinator meets us and takes us into the stadium. And it’s literally empty… Like just us, and some staff. Their equipment manager ends up bringing me a bunch of gear and such, and they start introducing me to the whole staff (legit everyone, the water people, Dawn, Tony, the team manager, the PR people, the team photographer, Heif, everyone). then Tobin fucking Heath walks out and quote literally goes “oh hey are you Allie?” “Usually we have a bunch of people at training but this one’s just for you.” Then the girls started filing out one by one and joining our conversation. And it just went up from there…the whole organization went completely out of their way to add surprise after surprise, touring the locker room, going on-field for warmups, attending the press conference, seat upgrades, meeting the gals over and over again, the whole shebang. It was truly incredible.
So I'm the anon that just said the thing ab Ali, so I'll just tell u what happened at the airport, so when we got in our cab the driver was telling us about himself and he then said how has driven Famous people like brad Pitt,Gronk, etc and then he said "and actually just this morning I drove Shannon Boxx!" @ this point I'm ab to cry because I realize that she was in the same car I am in atm moment and then he said " in fact she was sitting in that same spot you are!" So I'm basically crying rn
So we walk in tot the airport and who do we see? The China wnt! So we get into the security line and my fan is w/ the team in the line and I am of course like searching the check in desks looking for son us players and who do I see? Black nike sweater and SnapBack l knew that was Tobin for sure because I also saw the us bag and I was gonna cry again, so we get out of security and i got a picture with the China gk because she is literally 2 feet taller than me. So when we get to our gate…
Also the only North American flights that were happening within like a 3-4 hr time span was, NY, Atlanta, Washington, LA, Houston and Toronto
So when we get to our gate my sister and I are just thinking, we should go look for Tobin to get a pic! And (this is a small airport also like just a hallway and a circle area with ab 5 gates and so we are walking down the hallway and all I see are Ali Tobin and christen! And so we go up and ask for a pic and they are super nice about it like"ya for sure, of course" and so we say great game yesterday and
And omg I loove Ali’s voice hearing it on interviews and stuff so when I heard it when she is standing right next to me a died a little. So when we got back to our gate we were kind of just looking around seeing if there were any other players and we also see heif talk to them while they are in line at a food place and then Ali walks by our gate and we make eye contact and she smiles and so she just walks around and that’s the last time I saw her.
OMG ANON!!!! I would have died basically. And thank you for sharing this!!
i honestly wonder if heif and other media rep types have talked about the presence the team has on tumblr. weve grown exponentially since the last wwc, (there are literally dozens of us!). and theyre pushing the team instagram lately. like i wonder if heif spent 45 minutes looking at uswnt blogs then decided we were too delusional and emotionally unstable to handle an official team tumblr.
Heif was passing out FULL SIZE MILKA BARS!!! I didn’t get one. :( Somebody gave Syd that giant poster of Boss with Nike cleats on. Hilarious. And I literally lost my shit when Captain America came over, that’s why the first picture is blurry. I freaked lol. My friend and I were basically speechless for five minutes afterwards.
