According to a recent story, Alex Morgan was handed the keys to a brand new silver Lexus IS 350 in high school by her parents. Apparently she “earned it” by doing well in school, and exceeding in extra-curriculars. So Alex Morgan was essentially a good kid, we’re told in the Grant Wahl story “Alex in Wonderland,” but then again lots of kids make the national honor society and play varsity sports in prep school.

They don’t all get free premium luxury sedans.

“The 250 is the standard, but she wasn’t having that,” the father of Alex Morgan is quoted on page 54 of the June 24th SI. They could only find two 350s available on the West Coast (Alex Morgan grew up in Diamond Bar, California) so Alex and her father flew to Phoenix and then drove one back to Los Angeles. So Alex Morgan didn’t just have a sweet brand new Lexus as a teen; she had an extremely hard to find Lexus.

The article goes on to say that Alex Morgan makes more than a million per year (mostly of endorsements) today.

    @Paul did you bump your head?
    No one in that final game got owned. Yes maybe the underdog won, but it was a clean game and well played. (japan got the only red card and yellow card in the game). Both teams played with honor and pride. Gratz to team Japan for one of the great wins in womens soccer history.
    Paul you are a moron! The US handled the defeat with grace and class.

    And Alex is way hotter!

  10. Paul you’re an idiot, no one on USWNT was being rude or got owned.

    Alex you’re real cool.

    Hi Alex,

    You are great!

    have a nice day.

  22. I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found
    any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful
    than ever before.
