Hope Solo, St. Louis Athletica Goalie, Is Gonna Kick Some Field Goals at Super Bowl

The U.S.' best soccer goaltender, St. Louis' own Hope Solo, told radio host McGraw Milhaven yesterday morning that she's looking forward to a three-day trip to the Super Bowl in Miami this weekend.

"There's a ton of parties and I have a feeling it's going to be like Vegas: You go for three days, you party hard, you socialize, you do all the events, you come back and you get sick for a week."

Our kinda woman. But guess what, the St. Louis Athletica goalie is also nervous about the trip.

ESPN invited Solo on an all-expenses-paid junket so that she could kick some field goals in a pre-game contest held on Sunday.

Solo said she'll be competing against Robbie Gould of the Chicago Bears football team....and she's kinda freakin' about it.

"I kicked a football probably three years ago, messing around, and I couldn't even get it off the ground. It's going to be interesting."
