Can’t we all just get along?

The U.S. Women’s football – er, soccer – team has cruised so far: 4-2 over France and 3-0 over Colombia (in a game that included star forward Abby Wambach getting sucker punched by Colombian Lady Andrade, and yes, that is her name).

But there’s a feud brewing off the pitch between former U.S. Team star (and Sports Illustrated cover icon, above) Brandi Chastain, and current women’s team goalkeeper Hope Solo.  Chastain has been critical of the U.S. defense recently, and Solo, who apparently watches the replays right away, has taken twitter umbrage (twumbridge?).

Methinks Solo should stop worrying about what people on TV say, but Solo has a history of saying whatever pops into her head.

That said, if I’m handicapping an actual brawl, my money’s on Solo, below.



  1. Surprised Hope Solo would go after a commentator like that, especially after a 3-0 win. I don’t know what Hope Solo thougth she was doing with those tweets but I’m not sure America is going to take to those comments so well. Women’s sports aren’t all that respected to start with and you start whining about criticism. Doesn’t seem all that bright to me on her part. Also, you think you could take a look at my latest blog post cuz I’d love to hear what you have to say.

  2. Too much testosterone with our USA Wmyn’s Soccer team. Although, it was entertaining to see the femme Lady Andrade KO the very butch Abby Wambach a few days ago. Wambach’s whining would not last one second at the legendary diesel bar in the Windy City: “Augie and CK’s.” Over and out.
