As great a time as the NWSL had in Houston for last year’s NWSL Championship week, we’re guessing the Super Bowl may have just slightly outdone that. Part of Super Bowl LI in Houston included a wide array of faces familiar to the women’s soccer crowd. Some were at NRG Stadium taking in the action, while others showed up on Animal Planet”s broadcast of Puppy Bowl XIII.
Ali Krieger of the U.S. national team and Orlando Pride was part of the Puppy Bowl:
Ashlyn Harris too:

We can’t see her, but Kelley O’Hara was also part of the Puppy Bowl:

But here’s proof Kelley was in Houston. Allie Long and Merritt Mathias too:
We found Kelley!
We’ll take the Breakers’ word for it that this photo is of managing partner Michael Stoller. What do you think?

This is definitely Stephanie McCaffrey. She’s from Boston. Do we think she was happy? (it’s a video):
And doesn’t it warm all of our heard to see these four just hanging out watching the game together? If you’re not sure, left to right it’s Mia Hamm, Julie Foudy, Kristine Lilly and Tisha Venturini-Hoch.
So fun watching SB craziness w this equally crazy crew. Stuck w me forever. Love these ladies. Thx for hosting Vench! pic.twitter.com/9t2QpxBu3V
