USWNT celebrates World Cup with dancing, tears, locker-room rowdiness

The United States women’s national team – excuse us, the world champion United States women’s national team – is truly one-of-a-kind.

On the field, the 2019 World Cup queens are the greatest women’s soccer unit ever assembled.

Off it, they’re a unique group of personalities.

On the field, especially in training, they push one another harder than any of us could imagine.

Off it, they have more fun than any of us will ever have.

The USWNT’s rowdy postgame celebrations

Megan Rapinoe and Rose Lavelle were the stars during the game. But afterward, backup goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris was the hero. A true woman of the people.

She posted a glorious – and expletive-laced – Instagram story that took fans inside the locker room to get a sense of the scene. Be forewarned, there is a lot of colorful language. But the content won’t disappoint.

Rapinoe, for a while, was stuck at the postgame news conference. Harris told her – or, rather, yelled at a TV – to “get your ass in the f***ing locker room!”

So did Ali Krieger, of course. Harris and Krieger are engaged. Before they actually get married, though, they get to celebrate a world freakin’ championship together:
