USWNT World Cup Media Day is over — Here is what we learned
The IX: Soccer Monday with Annie M. Peterson, July 3, 2023
First off, this is going to be a photo-heavy post with no tweets! Thanks Elon! If you all are migrating somewhere, drop me a note, I’m at email@example.com. And if anyone has a BlueSky invite to send my way, I would be forever grateful.
As for the USWNT, I have some fun notes and photos to share.
First, Megan Rapinoe’s hair is no longer pink, or even purple, but a nice teal blue.
Crystal Dunn is also sporting some gorgeous blue braids with red nails! It appeared that the USWNT hired a manicurist for Media Day.

Listen to Megan Rapinoe, Alex Morgan and Lindsey Horan speak from the podium at Media Day. Oh hey, yours truly got in a question.
Also, just a guess here, but centering Horan here could be an indication that she’s gonna be captain.
