Phil Mickelson was one of the many celebrities watching and tweeting as the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team took down England in the Women's World Cup semifinal on Tuesday.
But Phil being Phil, he couldn't let an opportunity pass to take a lighthearted jab at someone, even if that someone was himself.
Watching the FIFA Women's World Cup apparently sent the five-time major champion down memory lane, as he reminisced about how much he loved playing soccer as a kid, with one caveat.
"Except for the running. I never really cared for the running," he tweeted.

Mickelson went on to congratulate the team on their accomplishments so far in the tournament and let Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe, Alyssa Naeher and the rest of the gang that he'd be rooting them on again in the final ... presumably from a comfy couch, not a treadmill.
Congrats to team USA on an exciting game and spectacular win. Awesome stuff ladies and so fun to watch. Good luck in the finals as 👀 will be watching 😎 and pulling hard for you. 🇺🇸— Phil Mickelson (@PhilMickelson) July 2, 2019
