"Once upon a time it was considered low-class for athletes to be so smug and self-adoring."
Really? You mean like when Babe Ruth, asked why he got paid more than President Harding, replied, "Because I had a better year"?

After all, she plays soccer, and isn't used to getting much attention at all in the States.
