Quote of the day: Abby Wambach on Hope Solo

“You never call another team cowards after you’ve just been beaten. … You don’t want to be a sore loser — not when you’re the best team in the world. To me, that looks weak. 

“That’s like playground stuff. Be a professional. Stand up and say, ‘You know what, they beat us at our own game. They played better than us today.'”

– Abby Wambach on the postgame comments during the Rio Olympics that got Hope Solo banned from the U.S. team. Wambach appeared on The Dan Patrick Show.
