  • Rapinoe, Sauerbrunn and Smith involved
  • Commercial to debut during NFL Playoffs

WHAT HAPPENED? The USWNT trio is featured in a new "This is SportsCenter" commercial, the latest in a long line of advertisements that look at the funny side of sports. In the commercial, Rapinoe, Sauerbrunn and Smith are seen in an office setting listening to SportsCenter anchor Jay Harris but, just as a meeting is set to end, stoppage time is added much to their frustration.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The commercial is the second to feature the USWNT in as many months, with ESPN also unveiling an ad titled "orange slices" involving the trio.

WHAT NEXT FOR THE USWNT? The USWNT is set to take on New Zealand in friendlies on Tuesday and Friday with the annual SheBelieves Cup right around the corner in February.
