Hope Solo admits to being drunk on the ‘Today’ show in 2008


USA women’s soccer goalie, Hope Solo, recently made news testing positive for a banned substance and is now back in the headlines for more bad behavior.

In an interview for ESPN’s body issue, Solo admits to being drunk on the Today show while being honored for winning a gold medal at the 2008 Olympics.

Solo says that she was partying with celebrities and her teammates at the Olympic Village. “Vince Vaughn partied with us. Steve Byrne, the comedian. And at some point we decided to take the party back to the village, so we started talking to the security guards, showed off our gold medals, got their attention and snuck our group through without credentials – which is absolutely unheard of.”

Solo also added, “I may have snuck a celebrity back to my room without anybody knowing, and snuck him back out. But that’s my Olympic secret. When we were done partying, we got out of our nice dresses, got back into our stadium coats and, at 7 a.m. with no sleep, went on the Today show drunk. Needless to say, we looked like hell.”

Solo, and the other USA women soccer players, aren’t the first to appear on the Today show a little buzzed. However, this negative publicity is not something to make us feel proud of Olympic athletes and it is certainly not a good example for all the young fans.

Here she is during the 2008 interview.
