Headlines
Hope Solo has been suspended for six months from the US Women's National Team thanks to her comments after the loss to Sweden in the Olympic quarterfinals. Honestly, it seems a little harsh for simply calling the other team cowards, but this is just the latest in a line of many major and minor incidents that have made Solo a miserable person to be around. Whether it's drunk driving, domestic violence, or speaking her mind in sometimes offensive ways, Solo has done very little to make her a likeable person. Her time with the USWNT was probably approaching its end anyway, so this likely accelerates that process.

LA Galaxy's Robbie Keane is calling it quits from international duty with Ireland. The 36-year-old striker will play his final match in a friendly agaisnt Oman on August 31. He will not feature in Ireland's World Cup Qualifying opener against Serbia five days later. He has scored 67 goals for his country, more than any other Irishman.
