Chups and Swoops

The entire U.S. WNT went to the Carolina RailHawks USL First Division game tonight where they were recognized at halftime in advance of their game tomorrow. Lori Chalupny and Abby Wambach also helped kick-off opening night with a ceremonial first kick before the match, which was won by the home team, 1-0. Before the game, Chalupny, who is affectionately know as Chups (pronounced Chewps) to her teammates got to meet the RailHawks mascot, Swoops, a giant soccer playing Hawk, thus bringing together for the first time...Chups and Swoops. Chalupny did admit it was the first time she has even been photographed with a seven-foot Hawk.
