I’m surprised I haven’t seen a GIF of what I like to call “Jesus Julie Johnston” which would have been perfect for Easter. Ya’ll missin’ out. Also there’s a moment with Taryn Hemmings and it makes my life.

Seriously, one of my forever goals working with this team is to make you fall in love with these players. Last season, it was the only thing we had going for us since we couldn’t produce a win on the field for I think 6 games or something like that but even though we started with a win this season, it does not change my goal. I love this team so much and each individual player and I want all of you to see that. 

Sidenote: This is honestly one of my favorite videos I’ve made for the team because I also combined it with one of my other loves, Fifth Harmony. So hey Harmonizers out there that also enjoy soccer, come and be a Red Stars fan and support my campaign to have the girls sing the National Anthem.

"I’ve learned a lot about myself in the last two years. One of the things I’ve learned is it’s easier to accept your fate — whatever the coaches’ decisions are, or injuries — when you know that you can’t control them. You accept that. I’ve also learned that if I’m getting better, then I’m pretty happy. If I feel like I’m challenged and improving and growing as a person and a player and enjoying it — those are the only things I feel like matter. Come gameday, I can’t control what the coaches want or what the game needs. All I can do is what I do in practice every day. And I enjoy going to practice. I love it. In the past, on other teams, I’ve heard people say going to practice is like going to a job. I don’t know if it’s a maturity thing, or an appreciation thing, or just an unconditional love for the game, but I love going to training every day… even the worst days are never that bad. If you can’t bring yourself to go out there and literally do what you love, then… I don’t know why people do it. It’s really easy to say “I do what I love,” but it’s another thing to actually do what you love and love what you do."

This sums up the game rather well, I would say.
