Megan Rapinoe Says Her Injury During Her Final Soccer Game Is “Proof That There Isn’t” A God

I guess Megan Rapinoe thinks that God should be a women’s soccer fan?

The now-retired soccer star competed in four World Cup Finals playing for the U.S. National Women’s Soccer League. Over that time, the United States won the past two World Cup titles and finished 2nd in Rapinoe’s first appearance on the team.

Rapinoe recently announced that she would be retiring from soccer soon, meaning that 2023 would likely be her last World Cup appearance with U.S. Women’s Soccer.

But unfortunately, that appearance was cut short after the women’s soccer team underperformed in the tournament and was ultimately sent home by a 5-4 loss to Sweden, including a missed penalty kick from Rapinoe.

And this past weekend, her final game of her career was cut short after she suffered a non-contact injury during the NWSL championship game just three minutes into the contest.

Her club, OL Reign, would go on to lose 1-2 to Gotham FC, who took home the National Women’s Soccer League trophy.

And after the game, Rapinoe said that her injury was “proof that there isn’t” a God.

“I’m not a religious person or anything, and if there was a God, like, this is proof that there isn’t. This is f*cked up.”

She also said that she would be getting the “Aaron Rodgers treatment” on her injury, which is suspected to be a torn Achilles, the same injury that Rodgers suffered during the first game of his career with the New York Jets.
