We already know Kevin Durant has an infatuation with Hope Solo. That much has become clear throughout the 2011 Women's World Cup. He tweets during games, has fallen in love with the US Women's National Team and seems to have a special love for Solo. Durant's been impressed with her play throughout and has taken to publicly lobbying for a date with Solo.
Ok, it's not exactly lobbying for it, but it is kind of funny.
It's nice to see the crossover between mainstream American sports and Women's soccer during the World Cup. Athletes are using social media to discuss the game in real-time, and have had nothing but kind words for the team and its play.
And what's not to love? This team has charisma, is certainly likable and has the play to match the personality. Solo is a prime example of it, combining superb play in net with charismatic interviews.
