If you ever dreamed of having United States women’s soccer stars Alex Morgan or Hope Solo in the backseat of your car, Sunday could have been your lucky day. After a practice session in Orland, Florida as the team prepared for their international friendly against Brazil, the team bus broke down and the players were left stranded.

Rather than getting worried or waiting for the bus to get repaired, the players hitched rides with fans that were kind enough to stop by and scoop them up.

Hope Solo, Abby Wambach and Carli Lloyd piled in one car, while Sydney Leroux and Alex Morgan hopped in another. Of course, since this is the modern era we are living in, the players documented their trips on Twitter.

Here are the photos that were tweeted out, via Deadspin:




While I am disappointed that I wasn’t one of the people lucky enough to scoop up Alex Morgan or Hope Solo, it’s good to know that the women got home safely and it’s even better to see the happy fans getting an incredible experience close to some of their favorite stars.

See, there still are some good people out there in the world.
