Happy B-Day Pia

There have been a number of February birthdays in training camp this month, including Cat Whitehill and athletic trainer Gigi Garcia, while Keeley Dowling and Amy Rodriguez celebrate their b-days in a few days. But today was head coach Pia Sundhage’s birthday. In addition to wolfing down ice cream cake at dinner, the team celebrated at the end of training by changing the usual “One-two-three-TEAM!” to the Happy Birthday song for Pia. Sundhage is known for her singing ability (and she also plays a mean acoustic guitar), but truth be told, the U.S. players ain’t bad either. It’s not like they are going to win American Idol anytime soon, but singing sessions on long bus rides in the past have been more than decent. To talk to them, though, they can’t seem to hit those right notes during the pre-game National Anthem, although they make up for it with volume.
