Hope Solo has a huge collection of saws. Should we be concerned? (video)

Hope Solo is back from the Olympics, and I’d say she has a pretty nice place to store her new gold medal. takes you on a tour of her new bachelorette pad in Kirkland, Wash., which comes complete with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a rec room, a pool and … many, many saws. The house has a shop, where she very proudly shows off a huge variety of saws hanging on the wall.

Now I’ve got this picture in my head of the goalie for the U.S. soccer team up at 3 a.m., sawing furiously. I wonder what she charges for bookshelves?

Zillow says the house, which sits on a little more than 5,000 square feet, comes in at $1.2 million. Which seems cheap for what we see.

Solo was born in Richland, Wash., attended the University of Washington and says that “Seattle is in my blood.”

    Honestly, maybe the video shows a bit more, but in that still shot, I see at most 6 saws. For people that do any kind of work around the house, your garage needs at least 3 different kinds if not more.

    So if she was a dude, it would be ok? Maybe she’s just a do-it-yourself-person.

      Wait…she isn’t a dude?

        You’re saying you wouldn’t hit that if you had the chance?

    I’d bet the shop “came with” the rest of the house.
