USA! USA! USA!

Being that I am a soccer player, I am quite the US Women's Soccer team fan. So, when we got word that the USWNT would be coming to little ol' utah to play a friendly match against Mexico, I bought tickets the day they went on sale. We were so excited to see Megan Rapinoe, Abby Wambach and Sydney LaRoux hit the pitch, that we decided to make a sign. Now, I'm not saying this is the highlight of my marketing career, but it definitely makes the highlight real. So we went to the dollar store and gathered out poster making assets. Two poster boards, and four jumbo markers with hopes the poster would be seen by Rapinoe. When we finished the Poster read "POUR ME A GLASS OF PINOE", so we rode the train with the poster in hand to the field. Once we were there it got the attention of a lot of people, even a few crucial sideline team members and photographers. In the end USA won 8-0 and we got a tweet from #15 herself... But the best was yet to come. A few weeks later we traveled to my home city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to watch the ladies in red, white, and blue play again. And, we brought the poster with. This time it caught the eye of the president of the US soccer federation himself, he thought it so clever he took it from us and had Rapinoe sign it in the locker room. I've never been the envy of 13 year old girls but boy were they jealous. And yes, they ladies won yet again, and this time won the tournament.
