Sports Speak Up: Readers sound off on USWNT and Holly Holm

MY 13-YEAR-OLD daughter plays soccer and has purple hair. Not because she’s a Megan Rapinoe fan, it’s because she’s a teenager. That right there speaks volumes.

ON WEDNESDAY, I heard 2 women screaming and shrieking but before I dialed 911, saw it was just my TV — the Ladies’ quarterfinal match at Wimbledon.

LAST WINTER, KRQE and Fox New Mexico pulled their signals from TDS Cable, which serves much of southern NM, right in the middle of the NFL playoffs, to get higher fees. Now DirecTV has pulled those stations from its service. Seems like Nexstar is getting what they deserve.

HOME RUN Derby champ Pete Alonso should have been the All-Star Game MVP. He was the only player there with more than one RBI.


I DON’T know how many more photos I can look at of Holly Holm’s battered face…they’re painful to look at. Despite the fact that Holly and her promoter don’t like to broach the subject of her retirement, it’s a question many New Mexicans are asking. When will she finally hang it up? At 37, age has to be an issue, and down the road, all these blows to the head have to be creating some head trauma. Hands down, she’s a class act, but surely there must be something meaningful she can do that is not so hard on her body.

HUMOR — In U.S. World Cup Soccer — men are men and women are champions.

THE U.S. women’s soccer team should get paid MORE than the men. The women have made more money than the U.S. men’s soccer team for the last five years.

JUST A suggestion to all of you “fans” that so recently climbed aboard the NM United bus, I’m sure that I didn’t see even ⅓ of you at the UNM soccer games. If ya wanna know who killed UNM soccer, besides the regents, go home, walk into the bathroom, look into the mirror. Yep.
