Nothing Says ‘I’m Sorry’ Quite Like a Hope Solo Myspace Apology
Hey look, if you’re an elite player and the coach screwed the team by putting someone in the lineup who was inferior to you, then the coach is the idiot. And if you call him out on his crap, then that’s OK. What’s not cool, is apologizing for ripping into your coach after he made an idiotic decision that cost the team. What’s even worse than that, is apologizing on a Myspace blog, which is exactly what the now infamous Hope Solo did (allegedly):
I have felt compelled to clear the air regarding many of my postgame comments on Thursday night. I am not proud or happy the way things have come out. Although I stand strong in everything I said, the true disheartening moment for me was realizing it could look as though I was taking a direct shot at my own teamate. I would never throw such a low blow. Never. Many of this goes way beyond anyone’s understanding, and is simply hard to justify.
For those who despise me, well, I can only hope that in due time you can find the understanding needed to forgive me.
Is this really her? Are you serious? She really thinks people would waste their time despising her? Don’t we all have better things to do? Oh yeah, and two words for you, Hope: Spell Check. I can’t be too certain it’s her, but if she chose a Myspace blog entry as her outlet to the world, well, then I’m not so sure I want to be part of the new day in age. People who use blogs to get a point across are losers.
What did Solo apologize for? Angry that Briana Scurry was chosen to replace her in net, she called the decision “wrong.”
“And I think anybody that knows anything about the game knows that,” Solo said after the US lost to Brazil.
“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.”
