Fab Five move on to other activities

Mia Hamm, Julie Foudy and Joy Fawcett retired from soccer a year ago, breaking up the Fab Five. So what are they doing now?

Aside from promoting an upcoming HBO film about them, Foudy will be working for NBC Sports at the Turin Olympics, Fawcett is a soccer mom and Hamm is touting fitness to youngsters across America.
Brandi Chastain, infamous for her celebratory jersey twirl, spent last season as a MLS commentator. Kristine Lilly is the only active player among the Fab Five, and she'll suit up with the U.S. national team in China next month.

They all remain involved in soccer in some way, and are hopeful a new women's professional league is on the horizon. The eight-team Women's United Soccer Association (WUSA) folded in 2003 after a three-year run.
