U.S. Women's Soccer Team Stars Hitchhiked With Fans After Team Bus Broke Down (PHOTOS)

While it's not uncommon for fans to give the home team an emotional lift during a game, the type of lift several members of the U.S. women's soccer team got over the weekend was a bit out of the ordinary. Alex Morgan, Hope Solo and a handful of U.S. players hitchhiked back to the hotel after their bus broke down on Saturday at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando.

A day later, playing before a record crowd, the U.S. women overwhelmed Brazil 4-1 to complete an undefeated 2013 season.
