Wasn’t it just yesterday that Mia Hamm, soccer’s reluctant and painfully shy superstar, was guiding the Girls of Summer to World Cup glory? She can’t possibly be 40? Right?

Well, I checked twice. Used a calculator and everything.

Sure enough. She turns 40 today.

Celebrate by cruising back through these old school pictures of Mia Hamm and the girls.

* Headline was “borrowed” from GQ Jennifer Aniston cover photo of several years back. Thanks, guys, I’ll get it back to you soon.
