Hello, friends, and welcome back to your weekly Pop Culture Fix.
+ Sue Bird at Team USA are training and traveling and doing press in the lead up to the summer Olympics and Bird just can’t stop talking about how much she loves Megan Rapinoe, even to CNN.
Living alongside Rapinoe, herself a pioneer in women’s soccer, has certainly had an influence on Bird. The pair are both unapologetic in their ambition and want to use their own success to pull others up behind them. It’s a relationship that seems to have got the best out of both and Bird is excited for what the future holds. “I’ve learned so much from Megan. Just watching her, how she carries herself, how she believes in certain things and sticks to it, never wavers, and there is a confidence that is required for that,” she says. “Who better to share ideas with, compare ideas with, poke holes in each other’s ideas? I mean, it’s really nice to just sit down and have someone to talk to that is going through the exact same things. More than anything I’m just incredibly proud of her.”
