U.S. Soccer President Mispronounces Megan Rapinoe’s Name at Victory Celebration

via ABC New York

The United States women’s soccer team celebrated their World Cup victory with a parade through New York City today.

Finishing at City Hall, United States Soccer President Carlos Cordeiro went up to the podium, where he proceeded to butcher Megan Rapinoe’s name:

What? Lmaooooo.

I agree with ABC 7 Eyewitness News; that was awkward as hell. This would be like Gary Bettman not knowing how to pronounce “Giroux,” as he hands the Stanley Cup to the Flyers captain in June of 2020.

Edit:

Here’s Carli Lloyd shouting out the Philadelphia Eagles at the parade –

    Or like Bob Clarke forgetting Giroux’s name when they drafted him.

    Okay, so we can forget all about these people until the Summer Olympics. Then pretend to care about them for two weeks. Then ignore them as they routinely lose to Men’s Under 15 teams for three years before the next farcical World Cup where they beat up on countries’ whose women’s program are under (wo)manned and under-funded as the US women continue to bitch and moan about how unfair life is despite them having it better than their peers in every single way.

    She’s cashing in on her BGM and will spend her post-playing career being a Kaepernick-like annoyance. Waiting for the whole team to be replaced by trans “women” if this fantasy of equal pay despite drastically different revenue intake doesn’t bankrupt the team first.
