What possible material would a 20-something who's entered the public consciousness twice have to be able to write a book? Especially seeing how NBC has just given us a collective national enema of athlete puff pieces?

Apparently she was conceived when her mom made a conjugal visit to her dad in prison. I believe NBC glossed over this fact in their coverage.

There was a movie a couple of years ago about Justin Bieber's life story. Contemporary culture has no perspective on these things. But then again, if Solo or Bieber waited until they were 50 to write these stories nobody would remember who they were.

would you rather Hope Solo do a movie mixing her talents of goal keeping with an entertaining fantasy storyline similar to Game of Thrones?

seriously - its been done before by olympic athletes trying to cash out a bit before they fade away to oblivion.

She should make a movie where she is the daughter of Han Solo.

i'd rather she attempt to keep her 5 minutes going by "accidentally" leaking her sex tape with Ryan Lochte

Do you think she let any balls past her net?

I just saw the closing ceremony - well the Spice Girls part. How does Victoria Beckham look from afar exactly like the 1990s? I mean, even I aged since the 1990s.

Key point here: "From afar".

I always have to wonder about these athletic uberchildren. Agassi/Graf - if that kid can't slug the fuck out of a tennis ball....

...the American decathlete who won gold (can't recall his name) is engaged to a Canadian heptathlete (seems sort of odd that they don't let chicks do 10 events) who placed, IIRC, something like 7th at these Olympics. That should be a competitive kid. And isn't the Ross in Sanya Richards Ross an NFL cornerback?
