Hey! Something positive came out of the Hope Solo situation. It was a lesson in what not to do.
"I was evaluating some of the situations and came down to the fact that Jesse had been in there all game," Thelen said. "We've been flip-flopping goalies as the season went on, but I honestly thought about the national team, pulling Hope Solo, and decided making a change when you don't need to make a change seemed unnecessary."
Although this coach seemed far wiser all along - because at least both goalkeepers were getting regular game experience.
