I know we are all proud of our local celebrity and sports star Hope Solo. She has continued to amaze us and make us proud from her dynamic soccer playing to her "Dancing With The Stars!"

I heard she was recently nominated for the "Awesomest Dude" Award on SportsNation. I am sure they mean this to be a great honor!  And she certainly is AWESOME!

But, I wonder if anyone else thinks it might feel a little weird for her to be called a "Dude" (Note her comment on her Facebook page)

Hope Solo can certainly hold her own against any other athlete male or female, but I wonder if that title would  offend her at all. Or am I just being too sensitive?

Tell me what you think. Post your reply below.
