The US Women's Soccer team has a big game Friday night against China in the World Cup, but it's pretty apparent that a number of players on the team already feel like they've had a successful day. Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that states cannot ban same-sex marriage. It's arguably the biggest moment in history for gay rights advocates.

To celebrate the decision, a number of athletes on the women's team, including Alex Morgan and Sydney Leroux, have been taking to Twitter. Some of the players on the team, including Megan Rapinoe and Abby Wambach, have come out as gay over the past few years.
