From the “things you wish you hadn’t said department,” one has to wonder how badly former USA women’s soccer coach Pia Sundhage wishes she had never called Carli Lloyd “a challenge to coach.”
Quips like that ought to be hung on the wall of all who find themselves in a position to be an organizational spokesperson or aspire to political office or are frequently sought out for quotes due to their experience and expertise. You never know a) when someone will have a breakout game or b) when your words will bite you in the backside.
Of course, as this story from Forbes.com suggests, Lloyd not only got the last laugh with her world-class World Cup performance on Sunday, but she’s likely to be laughing all the way to the bank for a long time to come.
