Is This The Worst Penalty Kick In The History Of Soccer?
USA Goalkeeper Hope Solo Has A Pretty Sweet Bachelorette Pad (Photos & Video)
American goal keeper Hope Solo has a tendency to shoot her mouth off when she should probably keep it shut. There was the incident at the 2007 World Cup in which she threw her teammate and coach under the bus after being benched before a 4-0 loss to Brazil. And then there was that little Twitter outburst at the 2012 Summer Olympics in which she basically called legendary U.S. women’s soccer player Bradi Chastain an out-of-touch, no-talent hack because she had the nerve to criticize the team.
Nevertheless, Solo is really hot and one of the best goalies in the world. So she’s doing pretty well for herself financially. In addition to her various endorsement deals, Hope also has whatever they pay her to play in the WPS (which isn’t much), and yesterday she released a book called Solo: A Memoir of Hope that must have earned her a decent chunk in advance payments.
Thus, estimates place her net worth at about $2.5 million. That’s not nearly enough to get her on the list of highest paid female athletes in the world, but it’s more then enough for her to buy a $1.5 million, 5000 square foot home in Kirkland, Washington, just across the bridge from downtown Seattle.
Hope calls it her “bachelorette pad,” and as you’ll soon see, it’s pretty nice. Not LeBron James nice or even Rod Barajas nice. But nice.
Here are a few photos:
And here’s a little video tour of the place given by Hope Solo herself:
I don’t know about you, but I could live there. Especially if it means shacking up with Solo.
