Wednesday: Dave Roberts, Mike Freeman

U.S. Women’s Soccer goalie Hope Solo joined the show to talk about her post-World Cup opportunities and more.

Dan asked Solo if she will be on Dancing with the Stars. “We will not know until next week until they make their announcement,” Solo said.

But Solo said there’s a problem with her joining DWTS. “I cannot dance,” Solo said. “I’m not sure it’s the best thing for me.”

Solo said she hasn’t gone back and looked back at the World Cup loss. But she’s proud they inspired a nation.

Dan asked if she was concerned about marketing sexuality around the U.S. team.

“The nation stood behind our team,” Solo said. “We were not wearing short skirts. We were playing as athletes. Not as cute women on the field. We were athletes. That is why we had so many people watching.”
