The Equalizer Staff July 10, 2015 14

Just when you thought the collective celebrity of the United States women’s national team couldn’t blow up more than it already had….BOOM.

The 2015 Women’s World Cup champions appeared on stage with pop superstar Taylor Swift on Friday night at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., as part of Swift’s 1989 tour.

Earlier in the day, the U.S. women shut down downtown Manhattan for a victory parade, the first ever for a women’s sports team in New York City.

It looks like the players had a good time at the concert. And Swift got to hold the Women’s World Cup trophy, which instantly has every soccer fan jealous. Lifestyles of the rich and the famous…

    I did not realize how tall Taylor Swift was. Also Fashionistas https://youtu.be/3O-gyTuqBdU

      Did somebody say discovery player?

      I was at this tonight. Well, I still am; waiting on a train out. Aside from it being a superlative concert in its own right, it was amazing how 60,000 Swifties went wild over the team. I can’t even right now.

        Discovery would be a waste but NWSL expansion team owner is more like it.

        • TsovLoj

          That was a joke.

  • kernel_thai

    If the team had known there was going to be so many fun perks, they wouldnt have waited so long to win the cup again.

    That’s pretty cool!

    My favorite 13s @taylorswift13 and @alexmorgan13 met and the world didn’t implode. It’s a great day to be alive!

    This should be a boost, no? If Taylor can make Apple back down she should be able to bully corporate sponsors and tv stations into more support for NWSL. Just wearing a Dash jersey in a video would help. It turns out she used to play so maybe she might help out.

      Hear hear!

  • Hey taylor swift if you really like women’s soccer, maybe you could take 1/200 of your net worth and start an NWSL franchise IN nashville

    • Steglitz49

      A team in TN or KY would be a capital idea. Smart thinking.

      Will the American people thank her by attending the matches? Your guess is as good as mine.

    Taylor Shift, who the Eff is that? What’s next a Justin Believer concert? USWNT is trying to milk the 14 year old crowd I see….

    • Steglitz49

      and, why not? In 4 years time they will be 18 and can go to Paris if daddy pays, and in 8 years finishing college. Smart move. Good PR.

    • eleventeenseconds

      what’s wrong with trying to get more 14 year old girls into woso? you say that like it’s a bad thing. do fans really need to respond to the USWNT’s success and exposure with some hipstery, “i’m too cool for this” snark? we can’t just be happy for them? also, Taylor Shift? Justin Believer? that is a really disappointing level of punning
