It's been one exciting victory tour for the U.S. women's national soccer team following its win in the Women's World Cup this summer.
From a ticker-tape parade in New York City to local stops at Wrigley Field, U.S. Cellular Field and Ryan Field, members of the team are exercising their status as national heroes.
USWNT forward Christen Press stopped by the AT&T U-verse Lounge on Thursday and talked about the whirlwind trip across the country.
"Perhaps the month after the World Cup was more exhausting than the World Cup itself," she said. "It's been a lot. We've been traveling, racking up the miles, but it's been great to celebrate this victory with the whole country."
After warm receptions at Cubs and White Sox games, Press, who plays professionally for the Chicago Red Stars, also discussed what it's like to be a part of the Chicago sports scene.
"It's been great. We've gone to so many different games and walked out at halftime and thrown a pitch here or there," she said. "The Chicago sports world's awesome, and I wasn't ever a part of it before but I'm really happy to be here now."
The Red Stars have an NWSL (National Women's Soccer League) semifinal match vs. FC Kansas City Sunday.
