Brandi Chastain Hall of Fame Plaque Gets Meme Treatment, Will Be Redone 

WED MAY 23, 2018 | | POSTED IN: SPORTS | SOURCE

 

Brandi Chastain was enshrined in the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame on Monday, and a day that should have been all about honoring one of the most important figures in US soccer history was overshadowed by how ridiculous her plaque looks.

 

Somehow, this is the plaque that the BASHOF came up with:

Brandi Chastain is one of the most beautiful athletes I’ve ever covered. How this became her plaque is a freaking embarrassment for BASHOF. Makes Cristiano’s look perfect.

Chastain tried not to sound ungrateful, but even she couldn’t help but acknowledge how ridiculous the plaque looks.

“It’s not the most flattering,” she said during the enshrinement ceremony, per Daniel Brown of the San Jose Mercury News. “But it’s nice.”

Fortunately, it sounds as though the BASHOF has heard the outrage and is going to create a new plaque for Chastain.

Some plaque artist confused Brandi Chastain for Gary Busey https://twitter.com/annkillion/status/998778381570260992 …

Chastain’s plaque has to be the most embarrassing thing we’ve seen since the Red Sox botched David Ortiz’s bobblehead doll. It will be interesting to see how the new one comes out.
