College Women’s Basketball Team Pushes Bus During Nor’Easter
I love this story! The women from Northeastern University's basketball team scored a huge win for teamwork Wednesday before they even played the game, when they teamed up to push their bus stuck in the snow in Philadelphia .
The team had just left Saint Joseph’s University’s gym after their practice when the height of the nor’easter was wreaking havoc. They were only 10 minutes into the bus ride when it stalled.
“[The bus driver] kept backing up and trying to get some momentum,” Northeastern senior Maureen Taggart told the Boston Herald. “Eventually, he just kind of gave up.”
The vehicle’s wheels couldn’t move through the slippery snow-covered streets. So about 15 players grabbed their coats, went behind the bus and began pushing, Taggart recalled.
Here is YouTube video of the Northeastern women pushing their bus out of the snow...
