USWNT Women’s World Cup celebration

They talked the talk … and definitely walked the walk. Megan Rapinoe, Alex Morgan and the rest of the U.S. Women’s National Team put on a dominant performance in the Women’s World Cup on their way to taking home their second consecutive title and fourth overall with a 2-0 victory against the Netherlands.

After the full-time whistle on Sunday in France, the festivities started pretty much immediately. From locker room celebrations to plane rides and interviews to, um, some killer dance moves, we take a look at a whirlwind few days for the players as they made their way from Wednesday’s parade in New York to The ESPYS in Los Angeles.

Ski masks, champagne … and more champagne.

Monday: ‘It’s been real, France’

Sleep? The USWNT likely didn’t get much. Not that it mattered. The players were ready to bring the party to the United States:

Monday/Tuesday: USWNT takes over Big Apple, Part I

Upon arriving in New York, the USWNT made several TV appearances, including “Good Morning America” and Megan Rapinoe and Alex Morgan joining ESPN’s Jeremy Schaap on set. But not before enjoying the good life of the champions they are, including a night at Nobu, sunset on a yacht, daytime by the rooftop pool — you know, the usual.

Immediately after the parade, it was hop on a plane and then hop off a plane at LAX… with a little bit of hair and make up in between.

After planes (not trains) and automobiles, the players made their way into the Microsoft Theater … and it didn’t take long for one of them to get an award, as Alex Morgan took home Best Female Athlete honors.

Morgan’s reaction: “Sorry, but this is probably the second-best trophy we won this week.”
