Off The Market: Servando Carrasco & Alex Morgan Are Dating

Here’s a pure football pairing we wholeheartedly support: Seattle Sounders midfielder, Servando Carrasco, and USWNT player, Alex Morgan, are dating. For the past 3.5 years, actually!
In an interview with the Seattle Times, Miss Morgan’s MLS rookie boyfriend recently told how proud he was of her performance at this past Women’s World Cup. Moreover, when probed about his team-mates taking the mickey out of their relationship, Carrasco denied ever getting (much) grief over his now high-profile other half. He then went on to recount one particular away match where the team bus made a mandatory pit stop in front of a life-size billboard of Alex:
“We were pulling up to the hotel in L.A. and of course we get the red light right (before we) turn left to the hotel and there’s a huge Sports Authority and there’s a billboard of her outside. I just heard one person go, ‘Oooooooo!’ and there was just a chain reaction through the whole bus.”
Low and behold, the Sounders’ assistant manager acted as any responsible official would under such circumstances and turfed the entire squad off the bus for the sweet and supportive picture you see before you.
We hope his team-mates made the most of the opportunity. If Servando has any sense, this is as close as he is ever going to let them get to his beloved. Bless.
