Must-See Serenade: C.J. Sapong

Because we can all use a good laugh sometimes, here is MLS Rookie of the Year favorite and Sporting Kansas City striker C.J. Sapong serenading U.S. Women's World Cup star Hope Solo with a poem/rap.

It is definitely cringe-worthy at times, but might be one of the funniest things you see today:

    If you haven’t already watched it, skip ahead to the 1:00 mark. You won’t miss anything.
    Anyway, definitely hilarious.

  2. Joamiq says:

    I turned red with embarrassment as I watched this, and I’m brown

    hahahah Sapong’s legit

  5. Second City says:

    Sapong doing EXACTLY what he’s supposed to do as a striker on the pitch: trying to score.

    Do your thing, big dog. “Hope” it works out for you….no solo.

    Classic and by the way she is Hot.

  7. Felix says:

    that is so funny, could you see some up-and-coming MLB or NFL star doing something like this – coming across as a normal young 20 something? This is just funny and charming. I’m sure Solo is spoken for, but he must’ve hit the crossbar, thats for sure.

    Ahhh lets the balls drop man

  9. John says:

    The kid is brave, and as Ferguson said recently while talking about Rooney, that is an important quality in goal scorer. Also, some creativity doesn’t hurt. A good face dive to close.

    start was weak, but he finished pretty strong. hey, she gave him a smooch so that counts for somethin’!

  12. ManicMessiah says:

    I’m going to have to work up to watching this.

  13. Missoula says:

    Just because there’s a goalie doesn’t mean you can’t score

  14. Aquaman says:

    Hope Solo is all the working up I need.

  15. Butch says:

    #1 Hot Girl = Alex Morgan

    #2 Hot Girl = Carli Lloyd

    #3 Hot Girl = Heather Mitts

    Hope Solo is about average; middle of the pack.

    The rest are ugly.

    Abby Wambach is very ugly at the bottom.

  17. Rocksteady says:

    He’s got game…we could all take a lesson from C.J.

  18. nancy says:

    I think what he did was truly romantic and that if more real men did this type of thing maybe you all would have more dates.

  19. Fat Mac says:

    i would also make a fool of myself in front of a crowd for a kiss on the cheek from hope solo.

  20. Jason B says:

    You are mistaken sir. Ali Krieger is cute and I think Hope Solo is pretty cute too. I was at the US v. Costa Rica game and got a chance to see her in person. When she’s got makeup on and dressed in regular clothes she looks great.

    I also like Megan Rapinoe in a “quirky hipster with short hair” kind of way but I think she might be playing for the “other team” if you know what I mean…

  21. Coach K says:

    Don’t worry my friend, he’s on my radar.

  22. Second City says:

    You are absolutely on the money, Jason B.

    Krieger, Rapinoe & Morgan are where it’s at.

  23. Second City says:

    More dates from advice by random person on a messageboard: Check.

  24. Tim M. says:

    rapinoe is f*cking hot.

    serenade me please with your guitar megan!

  25. CSD says:

    That clip had the odd feeling of an uncomfortable moment at recess in middle school.

  26. DC Josh says:

    Sporting KC know how to make headlines. Marketing genius!

  27. Igor says:

    Awkward at the start, but he finished strong!

  28. DCLee says:

    Good stuff! Nice use of her name. Got respect him having the courage to do this in front of not only her but her team mates, his team mates and the media. Wonder if he gets a date out of it. The performance was certainly worthy of one:)

  29. DCLee says:

    I don’t think she is spoken for. She seems to be just enjoying her time in the spotlight. This is only my assumption with zero knowledge but she never brings up a boyfriend or anyone in her interviews and she broke it off with the guy she was with a few years back. Hopefully at this time in her life she is just dating and not attached with all the new people and places she is getting to experience. She has plenty of time left to be spoken for.

  30. Broderick says:

    I did this to a girl and got arrested for it. What the hell would you know?

  31. Second City says:

    Maybe she meant “more dates” by Bubba down at the county-pen.

    Silly internetz advice givers. Always being vague and not clarifying.
