Newsy hung out at Soldier Field with the U.S. women's soccer team a day before their match against South Africa and a month before the Olympics.
And I'm not usually a sideline reporter, so I had to break the ice the best way I knew how.
"Who do you prefer in your underwear ads — David Beckham or Cristiano Ronaldo?" I asked.
"Ooh, I think I'm gonna have to go with Beckham," Christen Press said.
The women were warming up for their first match ever against South Africa — a sort of friendly face-off before heading to Rio.
"Where's your head at right now? You thinking about the game tomorrow or thinking about the Olympics?" I asked.
"We're thinking about the game tomorrow. Every day, we're reminded of the work we're putting on the field that's going to translate in Rio," Alex Morgan said.
I even tried to talk to Hope Solo. She treated me like I was a mosquito carrying the Zika virus.
And speaking of Zika, I asked, "Are y'all concerned?"
"We always have concern and caution, but with that, we're really excited for a great tournament," Press said.
And I'm excited, too. Good luck, and kick some balls.
