Lesson Unlearned

"If you look at the women’s national team, what do you want [people] to see? What do you want them to hear? And that’s where we do have a choice, as players, coaches, staff, the way we respond to certain things.”
-Former US Women's Soccer Team Head Coach Pia Sundhage to Hope Solo in 2012

“We played a bunch of cowards. The best team did not win today. I strongly, firmly believe that.”

"To call them cowards for playing a tactically smart game is ridiculous and classless, and it really doesn’t represent the house that we built with the U.S. team.”
-Former Gold Medal  US Women's Soccer Team member Julie Foudy

And the US fans calling for a boycott of IKEA are just as childish as Hope Solo.
