I just want to thank Hope, the rest of the USWNT, and most of the other teams in this year's WWC for providing us, the viewers, with an entertaining and for the most part, clean tournament this year. God knows we can't say the same thing about the one the men gave us last year.
It was about this time last month when I was first introduced to Hope Solo. I was bored so I turned on ESPN, and ended up watching the USWNT destroy North Korea's WNT. I was so impressed by not only her skill but also her PRESENCE. It's hard to describe how she can dominate play, and seemingly strike the fear of God into her opponents, back 4, or anyone who catches direct contact with her gaze when she's making one of her many epic bitchfaces. So, I'm going to post a video of one of my favorite matches I've found of hers, that serves as evidence of why so many people consider her one of the best in the world.
