Team USA soccer star Hope Solo is quickly become one of BC’s favorite athletes. First off, she’s really hot. Also, she’s pretty damn good at her sport…always a plus. What really separates her though, is this wild side we are starting to see more and more of. She recently admitted she was drunk during a 2008 Today Show appearance. First it was a near arrest back in June, now these reports of drunkenly appearing on national television. You go girl!
The recent interview was included in ESPN The Magazine’s Body Issue. Hope was very casual and carefree throughout the interview, giving readers some behind the scenes information on herself and the Olympics. Check out some of these quotes. This one explains the situation leading up to the Today Show appearance:
“When we were done partying, we got out of our nice dresses, got back into our stadium coats and, at 7 a.m. with no sleep, went on the Today show drunk.”
Gotta love it. She also explained what the lifestyle was like within the Olympic Village:
“There’s a lot of sex going on.”
If those quotes don’t make you want to buy ESPN’s Body Issue, then maybe the naked women will suffice. The magazine hits stores today, so be on the lookout.
