Pittsburgh Native Meghan Klingenberg Scores For USWNT, Waves Terrible Towel
The U.S. Women's National team's friendly today at Heinz Field wasn't all that friendly -- USA stomped Costa Rica 8-0. And since the game was played in Pittsburgh, Steel City native Meghan Klingenberg celebrated her goal by waving a Terrible Towel.

The attendance of 44,028 was a record for a soccer game of any type in Pittsburgh, and also a record for a stand-alone women's friendly in the U.S. Fox Sports:
“I love Pittsburgh and being here was just incredible and to be able to bring my teammates and my friends and coaches here to experience what an incredible city and incredible fan base we have is really incredible," Klingenberg said. "You knew Pittsburgh was going to show up in force and be extremely loud and waving their terrible towels. This is a blast celebrating this World Cup and preparing for the Olympics,’’
Christen Press scored a hat trick, and Heather O’Reilly had two goals.
