If you watched any of the United States women's soccer team last night before the NBA Final, you likely saw Lauren Cheney playing a starring role for the stars and stripes in a 5-0 rout of South Korea. A game in which Abby Wambach became the all-time leading women's scorer in the international game.
In case you didn't know, Mrs. Cheney is also known as the soon-to-be Mrs. Jrue Holiday. The pair is set to marry next month.
This morning, Cheney tweeted this
I'd say that was the perfect game to retire my last name. Next time I put on that jersey I will be a Holiday.

So, whether Jrue ever gets a chance to play for the stars and stripes on an international stage is up for discussion.
For now, his soon-to-be wife is the true patriot.
