Remember that whole Olympic spirit thing? Someone should tell Hope Solo about it.
The U.S. Soccer Team’s starting goalie may have been responsible for a shutout against against Colombia yesterday, but the former Dancing with the Stars contestant didn’t celebrate much afterward.
She slammed former World Cup hero Brandi Chastain instead.
Displeased with Chastain’s analysis as an announcer, specifically her criticism of defender Rachel Buehler, Solo went off on a multiple-part Twitter rant against the retired player:
- “Its 2 bad we cant have commentators who better represents the team&knows more about the game.”
- “Lay off commentating about defending and gking until you get more educated @brandichastain the game has changed from a decade ago.
- “I feel bad 4 our fans that have 2 push mute.”
Chastain is best known for nailing the World Cup-winning shootout kick against China in 1999. She’s played in 192 international teams for her country and did not respond to these taunts.
Solo, meanwhile, is unafraid to speak her mind. Earlier this month, she detailed the significant amount of sex that went on in the Olympic Village four years ago.
