It’d take a man with big fucking nuts to call soccer boring in the middle of the month every four years when it’s slightly less boring. I am that big nutted man. Sure, there’s the corruption, the lousy refereeing, the neo-Nazi protestors, the half-standing stadiums built in the jungle, and the dude on the Uruguay team who keeps biting opponents, but I just watched a 0-0 game and I’m feeling like sticking to boring. This sport needs more Hope Solo. You need a tall chick to keep goal, she does that. Need somebody to water their lawn naked or get wasted and start throwing punches at her sister and teen nephew, that’s Hope Solo too. Her steroid crazed husband has yet to beat the feisty out of her. Consider it a race for one of them to end up lifeless with a pipe to the cranium. Bet on Hope. She doesn’t lose many races.

Hope Solo just won a gold medal in London as goalie for the US powder-puff I mean womens soccer team, but that’s not gonna get attention for her new book.
Saying that Maksim Chmerkovskiy, her partner when she was on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ two seasons ago, slapped her around during rehearsals, will however.
“He manhandled me in rehearsals from the start, pushing me, whacking my stomach, bending my arms roughly. I thought that was just how it went, how dancers worked with each other,” Solo wrote.
“But it kept getting worse. One day, Maks was trying to put me in a certain position and hit my stomach so hard with his open palm that I had a red handprint there for the rest of the day.”
Solo claims ABC gave her the opportunity to continue with a different partner, but she “didn’t want to end Maks’ career,” she explained. She also felt that by doing so, the tabloids would make her look like a “prima donna.”
Stuff like this is why I got out of ballroom dancing. It’s gotten so violent, it’s not about the dancing anymore. On a side note, the World Cup has to know how phallic their trophy looks when girls hold it.
