Who is 'Kop'?

You mean THE Kop?  THE Haley Kopmeyer?

Well lemme just tell you a lil’ about this Michigan Native!

Born and raised in Troy, Michigan. Her parents signed her up as a kid to Rec, went to 5 tryouts but didn’t make a team until one needed a back-up.  Eventually became a starter and from then out performed for her team. In high school, she was named to the all-state first team, the all-district first team, the all-conference first team, and all-region first team. She then attended the University of Michigan! Go Blue!

She had a terrific career at Michigan. During her best season, which was her 1st after a season ending injury her freshman year, Kopmeyer led the Big Ten in saves (56), save percentage (.862) and saves-per-game (5.60) during conference play while topping the conference in overall save percentage (.848) and sharing the lead in saves (95). She played in 16 games, making 15 starts and set the school rookie record for shutouts with six.  She was awarded the University of Michigan Athletic Academic Achievement Award for the second year running and earned Academic All-Big Ten honors. 

After 4 incredible seasons, this Michigan product, to her surprise, was drafted 31st overall by the Seattle Reign in 2013. Kopmeyer didn’t believe she’d even be drafted and thus already had plans working somewhere else in marketing. She even watched the 2013 NWSL draft until the 29th pick and stopped there and went to work bc she thought she wasn’t going to be drafted only to get a call from her father to which she started bawling. 

Unfortunately, she was released from the team due to league roster constraints; however she was re-signed by the team for the 2014 season to back up Hope Solo.

In 2014, as back up to Hope, Kopmeyer believed it was a year she and Hope had began their relationship which was ‘massive’ , in her own words, in the sense that she had the opportunity to grow and learn from the best goal keeper in the world. She finally had someone who believed in her and thus from there on out kept improving as a GK. 

On her first ever start in 2014, something only our Kop would do, she went to the wrong goal and so ran the entire field to get to the right one. 

However, she did keep a clean sheet and the unbeaten streak while bringing the club to its fifth shutout in twelve games. Not to mention, some really good saves 

cr: here

Kopmeyer has been the back up since 2014 but in the years 2015-17, she’s taken a bigger role as Hope is in rehab now and taken a break from football. She is now the No.1 and has been putting on stellar performances for the Reign. 

From being rejected as a kid in rec games, to starting in the wrong goal as a professional to being Player of the Week and now Seattle Reign’s No.1, Haley Kopmeyer is a Seattle Reign FC Original and forever a gem to our team. 

P.S follow her Twitter for Gold quality content.

Bonus:

Kop being the most extra and crawling on the airplane floor to find out if Lu was in First Class

This has been a Haley Kopmeyer Appreciation Post. <3.

Stream This Town for U.S. Platinum certification

This Town is about 100,000 sales from being eligible for Platinum certification in the U.S. It is expected to sell ~20,000 a week, and is still dropping on iTunes. Let’s try and make up for the loss in digital sales with streams. It is currently getting around 500,000 streams a day, and not even half of those are in the U.S. The ONLY way to help with the Platinum certification is to stream with a U.S. IP. Streaming the lyric video not only counts as streams, it earns views. The goal is to make it goal Platinum before the six month anniversary of its release (March 29th). If streaming doesn’t pick up, it might not happen! Please stream with a U.S. IP! 150 streams = 1 sale

Splatoon bundle report! Omg, you guys. Splatoon is getting a Wii U bundle! And it looks like this sweet baby will only be available at Best Buy and BestBuy.com. I guess I know where I’m stopping on the way home from the lab on May 29th! Booyah! I can pick up some new CDs for my car, too. And some new rechargeable batteries for the squidtrifuge! In addition to the Wii U system and Splatoon, looks like it also comes with Nintendo Land, all for just $299.99! Inkredible! Somebody pinch me! (Except you, giant crab locked up in our research cage. You stay put!)

To recap, the Penguins gave up

  • Kasperi Kapanen
  • Scott Harrington
  • Nick Spaling
  • Brandon Sutter
  • David Perron
  • their 2016 1st-round pick (29th or 30th)

to get

  • Phil Kessel (at a $1.2M discount)
  • Nick Bonino
  • Carl Hagelin
  • Anaheim’s 2nd-round pick (55th), via Vancouver
  • their own 2016 2nd-round pick (59th or 60th)

and all three players they received are under contract for next season. That’s highway fucking robbery.

Just to amend my post about the cars, I mistakenly wrote that Harry is always driven in a silver BMW. It’s a Mercedes. My bad.

Also the black car in front of Louis’ today was a black Mercedes. I got BMW and Mercedes mixed up in that post.

I’ve been told that the black Chrysler is the car that Zayn is always driven in. So I’m going to assume that Zayn was driven to Harry’s white house on the morning of the 29th to pick up Louis so they would be seen arriving together to the signing as they always are.
