Humanity will no longer have to endure a soccer match in which United States Women’s National Team player Megan Rapinoe is playing. Her career’s final game took place over the weekend and ended with a non-contact injury just a few minutes into the game.
Of course, Rapinoe felt slighted by the injury, seeing herself as too good to have bad luck or for Father Time to get the better of her. Maybe if we referred to aging as Mother Time, then the world-renowned feminist and America-hater could accept that she, too, has shown signs of aging.
Alas, after the game, Rapinoe was asked how she felt about the unceremonious end to a career that was rather brilliant from a soccer perspective. Speaking about the injury, Rapinoe began to blame God. The same God that she claimed at the same time does not exist. She also told reporters that she felt that she did not deserve for her career to end this way, and that if life were fairer she would not have limped into the media room on her final day.
Referring to that injury, Rapinoe said, “I’m not a religious person or anything and if there was a God, like, this is proof that there isn’t. This is f—ed up. It’s just f—ed up. Six minutes in and I eat my Achilles.”
According to Rapinoe, as quoted by the New York Times, the injury that she sustained was a torn Achilles. And, of course, her ability to talk about it so soon after the game is a sign of her elite sense of humor. Which, I must admit, is a rather funny take from the most woke woman in professional soccer.
She said, “Everyone is always like, ‘Who kicked me?’ And obviously, no one was even around me, and I was pressing. That’s what it felt like. Just a huge pop and I can’t even feel where the Achilles is, but pretty sure I tore my Achilles. The worst possible outcome. Thank God I have a f—ing deep well of a sense of humor. It’s devastating to go out in a final so early.”
Now, it is impossible to say what is next for Rapinoe as her playing days become a distant memory. One thing is for sure, however. She will fight tooth and nail to remain in the spotlight, and this is far from the last time that we hear from the number one champion of woke causes in the world of professional sports. And that is saying something.
Whether it be as a commentator or just an analyst of the sport, we will be hearing her voice and seeing her on television for World Cups to come. At least now, we will never again have to cheer against her as a member of the United States Women’s National Team. That confusing period of wanting to see our country win but celebrating the fails and shortcomings of Rapinoe, of which there were many in the last Women’s World Cup, is behind us now.
