Golden Goal: Wambach, Solo, Morgan Score Deal With Bank Of America

TIME TO TALK: Solo continues to make the late-night talk show rounds, appearing Thursday on TBS’ “Lopez Tonight,” and host George Lopez introduced her by saying, “My first guest led the women's national soccer team to the World Cup final. She is, without question, the hottest goalkeeper on Earth.” After sitting down on-stage, Solo told Lopez, “I was so focused on walking down these steps in these heels.” Lopez asked, “Do you wear heels a lot?” Solo: “No, I'm an athlete. I’m a soccer player. Can you tell I can't really walk?” Solo said she has “barely slept in the last three days,” so Lopez thanked her for appearing on the show. Solo: “I'm so happy to be on a late-night talk show with a host who knows soccer!” Lopez asked, “Would you ever play on a men's team?” Solo: “That's been the million dollar question lately. I wouldn't be opposed to it, let's just say that. I wouldn't be opposed to it and I think I’d be able to hang. I don't think I’d be the best goalkeeper by any means. I'm not that arrogant, not that naive. But I think I’d be able to hang.” Lopez: “I think it’d be great to see you do that.” Solo: “I also think that we should be able to go that route if we're good enough.” At the end of the interview, Lopez sat in a dunk tank wearing a suit while Solo dropped kicked soccer balls at him, dropping him in the tank of water on her fourth attempt (“Lopez Tonight,” TBS, 7/21).
