Solo Tells Boba Fett Where To Stick It

Gangsta D:

Did you guys happen to catch this in regards to the US Women's World Cup loss.

"It was the wrong decision, and I think anybody that knows anything about the game knows that," she said. "There's no doubt in my mind I would have made those saves. And the fact of the matter is it's not 2004 anymore. .. It's 2007, and I think you have to live in the present. And you can't live by big names. You can't live in the past. It doesn't matter what somebody did in an Olympic gold medal game in the Olympics three years ago. Now is what matters, and that's what I think."

This chick is getting all kinds of sympathy on both Around The Horn and PTI. Can you imagine if Kobe was benched for the Olympic semi-finals and made these comments? He would get killed. As would just about every other black male athlete. Cute white chick says it? Not so much. I just laugh.

Da Realist:

It might also be because no one actually cares about watching professional soccer...besides waldini, that is. ;-)


I know Solo is mad b/c Scurry started but she has a point. She had been golden in goal for the US and to decide at the last min to start Briana was a bad move. Solo should have been more tactful in defeat about her comments. Ryan is more worried about the relationship between him and Solo. He needs to be worried about how Solo's teammates will react to her calling out her team member on a national stage

Gangsta you know the routine. If a white athlete does something like this, they are emotional leaders and courageous for saying this. When a non-white athlete says it, it's he/she is spoiled and an embarrassment to the sport.

Gangsta D:

I'm just gonna remember the mostly positive reaction to her statements, and wait to see the reaction to Melo's comments after getting benched in the 4th qtr of the Gold medal game at the Olympics next year:)
