I was almost too bitter about Christine Sinclair being snubbed and the general stupidity of FIFA and this whole awards ceremony to reblog this, but - there is no such thing as too bitter to love singing Pia.

Barnie, noticing that Baby Horse is trying to shield her eyes from the sun, moves her own hand over for shade. Oh Barnie, so gentle and perfect.

But Rapinoe has decided to pull off another landmark in women’s soccer: to come out and publicly discuss her sexuality.
“I feel like sports in general are still homophobic, in the sense that not a lot of people are out,” she says. “I feel everyone is really craving [for] people to come out. People want — they need — to see that there are people like me playing soccer for the good ol’ U.S. of A.”
Not that Rapinoe has been hiding anything; it’s just that no one ever asked her directly. “I think they were trying to be respectful and that it’s my job to say, ‘I’m gay.’ Which I am. For the record: I am gay,” she says. In fact, Rapinoe’s been dating her girlfriend, an Australian soccer player, for three years, and even brought her home to visit her family in Northern California last Christmas.
<333333 So, so impressive when someone is willing to make their private life public for the sake of others. Hopefully the popularity of the USWNT will mean that most people will say “oh, sure, no big deal - Pinoe’s gay and she’s awesome!” (who might have otherwise felt more “oh… gay? i don’t know how to feel about that”) and hopefully Pinoe coming out will help more people feel truly represented by this team.
Kudos to Pinoe, I hope she receives lots of love and appreciation and respect.
SCENE: a gym, late at night. Hope is alone, furiously doing crunches, burpees, pushups, etc. She is in a red sports bra and black training capris. Her hair is down and very voluminous. She keeps having to brush it out of her face and is visibly annoyed.
Someone KNOCKS on the door. Hope frowns and answers it.
PIZZA DELIVERY GUY ENTERS.
PIZZA DELIVERY GUY: Uh, I have a pizza with extra sausage for Hope Solo…
Hope’s eyes become murderous.
HOPE: Are you shitting me? I’m trying to prepare for the Olympics. THE GODDAMN OLYMPICS, IN LONDON, REPRESENTING THE AMERICAN FIGHTING SPIRIT. What the FUCK makes you think I want your shitty pizza?
DIRECTOR: CUT. Hope, we talked about this. It’s a porno. You want to sleep with this guy because you’re so desperate for—
HOPE: Desperate? Excuse me, have you seen my body? This face ain’t hurting, either.
DIRECTOR: But you know, you’re a lonely professional and—
HOPE: You’re a lonely professional, I’m Hope Solo. You’re fired. We’re doing this porno my way. Get out.
So, was thrace_ the director? The pizza deliverer? HOPE SOLO? Because I am 100% certain she witnessed this happening.
Potential porn titles for Hope’s porno:
- Hope Goes Solo
- Locker Room Confessionals
- Playing For That Team
- Scoring On The Keeper
- The Gloves Come Off (Amongst Other Things)
- It Takes Two (Or Three) To Tango
- Not So Clean Sheets
- (Soccer) Balls
I can go all day with this.
There are days when I love this fandom. Today is one of those days.
Don’t forget “Crossing the Line”, “Scissor Kick” and “Handball(s)”
“Screw Me In, Stud”
“Takedown in the Box”
“The Princess and I”
“Banging Off the Wood…work”
The best part—the absolute BEST part, was that once Reece got her hands on Woof, she was like “Peace fools, I’m out” and just sauntered off.
Second-best part was that adorable adorable Barnie hug.
CUTEST VIDEO. CUTEST TEAM. AGGGGH <3333333333

There’s really nothing you can say about Mia Hamm that hasn’t already been said. That’ll happen with legends.
