The USWNT talked about their victory over Korea DPR and the upcoming quarterfinals yesterday … well, most of them did. Hope Solo, on the other hand, spoke in code about her ongoing feud with Brandi Chastain. Allow me to translate:
What she said: We’re riding high on confidence.
What she meant: I DO NOT like Brandi, ok? Not the soccer player; the drink, the singer … or her little brother – what’s his name, Bray-J? Close enough.
What she said: We’re headed to the quarterfinals where the fun really begins.
What she meant: If I hear my name out of Brandi’s mouth again I’m heading up to the broadcast booth mid-match. I don’t care if she uses ‘hope’ as a verb. No exceptions. Hope ‘hopes’ she doesn’t cross the line!
What she said: We didn’t score 2, 3, 4, 5 goals but we got our one goal and that’s all we needed when you have a great defense like we do.
What she meant: You HEAR THAT Brandi? We have a great defense! What? Say my name then! Say it! Say my name, say my name (Beyonce voice)!
