Hope Solo, the best female soccer goalkeeper in the World, appeared on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight on Tuesday night, and came off as what she said she was: fiesty, tired, and wanting rest.
This blogger loves Hope Solo, but in watching her on Piers Morgan, I started to revisit that idea I expressed to Hope via Twitter last year: she tends to focus on anything negative someone says or tweets about her. I can think of that as the only reason for Hope’s comments to piers that the media’s always looking for something negative to say about her. That’s not true.
But I think Hope’s still smarting about the whole Brandi Chastain deal:
I’ve said that one thing I’ve learned as I turned 50 is that part of what people think about you is what you think they think about you, and on that I’ve been wrong 50 percent of the time. Since it’s a coin flip, it means you’re going to be wrong half the time, and you don’t know which half, so don’t stress about it. Hoep’s still stressing about it.
Maybe there’s a part of Hope that’s not happy unless she has a struggle.
Something to ponder. Stay tuned.
