Happy 31st Birthday, Hope Solo!

by at . Comments

It's likely just an afterthought for her as she tries to help lead the U.S. to Olympic gold, but soccer star Hope Solo turns 31 today. Happy birthday to the goalie!

If Hope's Twitter feud with Brandi Chastain has distracted the squad at all, you wouldn't know it; the Americans are 2-0 after blanking Colombia Saturday in London.

Solo met with coaches over her Twitter comments, but isn't expected to face disciplinary action. Here's hoping she and the team keep their eyes on the prize!

Saving Hope

One of the best-known U.S. soccer stars since ... well, Chastain and Mia Hamm, Solo has found herself in the news frequently over the years, on and off the field.

Hope lit up the parquet on Dancing with the Stars with Maksim Chmerkovskiy and posed nude in the annual ESPN the Magazine body issue.

She publicly criticized her coach in '07 for using another goalkeeper, and was recently given a warning for failing a drug test which found a banned substance.

Hope said it was due to premenstrual medication she takes and was cleared for the Olympics, where she says a lot of extracurricular activity goes on at night.

Here's wishing her the best in tomorrow's contest against North Korea - and a happy birthday as well! Don't party too hard in the village tonight, Hope ...

"Happy birthday Hope! Now shut your mouth and start acting like an adult." Yes that's right, Hope. Know your place and bow to jockocks who dominated soccer when there were like three teams who were any good...........I think that birthday wish was brought to you by the Nancy Pelosi/Debbie Wasserman-Schultz wing of women's advancement. Now for real, happy birthday from the 509.

To say she lit up the parquet on Dancing With the Stars is quite an exaggeration. She was clumsy and didn't have any rhythmn whatsoever.
