Hope Solo Issues Vague Apology, Says Her ‘Name Will Be Cleared’

Hope Solo got into some shit last weekend. Perhaps you heard about it. It allegedly involved “a lot of wine.”

Today, via Facebook, Solo has apologized for the mess ... sort of.

Here’s what the famous goalkeeper had to say:

I would like to apologize to my fans, teammates, coaches, marketing partners and the entire US Soccer and Seattle Reign FC communities for my involvement in a highly unfortunate incident this past weekend. I understand that, as a public figure, I am held to a higher standard of conduct. I take seriously my responsibilities as a role model and sincerely apologize to everyone I have disappointed.

I love my family dearly. We, like all families, have our challenges but my sincere hope is that we are able to resolve this situation as a family. Adversity has always made us stronger and I know this situation will be no different.

I also would like to thank everyone who has reached out with messages of support and encouragement. I truly appreciate your loyalty, concern and well wishes.

Due to pending legal issues, I cannot comment further at this time. However, I am confident in the legal process and believe my name will be cleared.

I look forward to getting back on the field where I belong with both Seattle Reign FC and the US Women’s National Team.

You almost feel sorry for Solo being held to that “higher standard of conduct,” don’t you?
