Hope Solo Poses Nude For ESPN The Magazine, Disgracing Women's Soccer

Hope Solo, the goaltender for the United States Women's National Soccer Team, is going to pose nude for ESPN The Magazine's body issue, and by doing so is set to disgrace her USWNT teammates and women's soccer.

Being naked outside is very liberating....atleast I hope it will be @ESPN and @ESPNMAG!!! GAMETIME BABY! Ball up!less than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry® Favorite Retweet Reply

 

I'm not surprised by this in the least. When any athletes notches any level of fame, they are prone to take advantage of it, and some (like Solo) tend to make bad decisions with their fame.

Solo isn't helping out women's soccer in American by doing this photo shoot. Instead of promotion the notion that women's soccer should be judged by the product on the field, Solo is now endorsing that it should be their bodies that receive the most attention. To me, this is a very disappointing use of Solo's time in the limelight.
