About Last Night

For one night, The Fifty/50 was somewhat of a Seattle Seahawks bar.
U.S. soccer star and Washington native Hope Solo cheered on the Seahawks Thursday at The Fifty/50 while in town for her team’s game against Germany Saturday at Toyota Park. Jerramy Stevens, who played for the Seahawks and the University of Washington, was also at The Fifty/50 watching the game.
Solo encouraged Chicagoans to come join her at the Ukrainian Village bar and support her team. “SEAHAWKS game at 50/50!” she tweeted. “Come support my hawks!”
The Seahawks ended up losing in boring fashion to the San Francisco 49ers 13-6 and the No. 1 ranked U.S. ended up tying Germany 1-1 in a game they probably should have won, but Solo’s visit wasn’t a complete disappointment.
“We are very well taken care of at Sunda,” Solo tweeted Friday. The “Dancing with the Stars” alum also visited Sunda with U.S. teammate Abby Wambach in 2011. “The food is to die for.”
