BJ & Jamie: Hope Solo Is Not Popular In Rio (Audio)

Citizens of Rio are not happy with Hope Solo.  She initially decided in February that she would not compete in the Olympics due to the Zika virus, but she later changed her mind.  In July she posted tweets showing numerous bottles of insect repellent with the hashtags #ZikaProof and #RoadtoRio.  The fans in the stands booed Solo whenever she touched the ball, and chanted “Zika” when she kicked it.  If Solo can help lead the women’s team to gold, will she get the last laugh?
