Big news came to Seattle yesterday, big news that I am still jumping for joy about. Hope Solo has signed with the local Sounders Women team. More details from the Seattle Times here.
I’ve looked up to Hope for years and years, and am soo excited to have her playing here in Seattle. What this means for soccer in Seattle is huge. The impact the Sounders men had on this city is obviously outstanding, and even with the Sounders Women being in a lower division, the influence it will have for girls and women growing up playing soccer and uniting people with the sport.. well lets just say I’m excited to see the city rally around the team.
