Last night during the Washington Spirit/Seattle Reign player introductions, the Spirit announcer messed up Hope Solo’s number and based upon the pictures above, she was obviously offended.  She has a right to be, but the man meant no offense and the fact that the players assumed the worst and didn’t let it go is the part that makes me sad.  During this year alone, the announcer said that the Spirit was coached by Mike Jordan, who was fired two seasons ago.  Additionally, he just completely forgot to announce Crystal Dunn… the 2015 NWSL Golden Boot winner.  He’s made countless mistakes with number and positioning, not to mention butchering names for years.  I’m actually not sure why he’s still the announcer, but regardless… Dear Seattle Reign - get over it…
