We’re chillin We got tea sippin we got celebrations We have pink hair and purple here We have tattoos dreadlocks We got white girls black girls and everything in between Straight girls gay girls. Hey, I Couldn’t be more proud to be a co-captain with Carly and Alex with this team It’s my absolute honor to lead this team out on the field There’s no other place that I would rather be even in the presidential race I’m busy. I’m sorry To the staff to the coaching staff the technical staff To the medical staff to the support staff the massage therapist to the videographers To the chef chef team To our security Comedian people. Thank you so much. You make our job so easy We don’t want to focus on anything other than what we have to do on the field. Thank you for that to the Federation Carlos thank you. You were incredible this World Cup. I know that you got a little stick when you were up here Couple champs. I think that’s a sign of infection though. Right? Like everybody gets booed everybody in the position of power gets booed I’m honest stick my neck out there a little bit. I’m gonna endorse Carlos I Think he’s with us. I think he’s on the right side of things. I think he’s gonna make things right? He’s proven He’s proven every day since he’s been in office for us That he’s with us. He was with us every single day of the World Cup Not only from just a personal standpoint how much that means to us? But just from an Outlook standpoint and all the eyes looking in this man was there he was in the tunnel Every single game he was celebrating every single game We appreciate that. Thank you We look forward to holding those feet to the fire To the mayor’s office well as you know, this is our second time around a beautiful wife Thank you for hosting us Also to the governor cuomo it’s how I think you pronounce it, right?

Yes. We play sports. Yes, we play soccer.

How do you make the people around you better your family your closest friends? ten closest people to you the twenty closest people to you the most hundred closest people to you It’s every single person’s responsibility There’s been so much contention in these last year’s I’ve been a victim of that. I’ve been a perpetrator of that without fight with the Federation Sorry for some of the things I said Not all of the things but it’s time to come together this conversation. Is that the next step? We have to collaborate it takes to everybody This is my charge that everybody do what you can Do what you have to do step outside yourself be more be better be bigger than you’ve ever been before if this team is any representation of what you can be When you do that, please take this as an example. This group is is incredible We took so much on our shoulders to be here today to celebrate with you today And we did it with a smile so Do the same for us? Please, I ask you.
