The Olympics will be here before you know it. In fact, the days are disappearing right before your soccer-loving eyes.

As you watch and listen to U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo talk about the big summer ahead, about the United States’ chances at a third Olympics gold, she and the NBC Sports gang mentioned “83 days” until the London games. Only, by today the sum has fallen to 82 days.

See … just about here.

Solo stopped by yesterday’s Seattle Sounders match to sign some autographs and spend a little time with NBC Sports soccer voices Arlo White and Kyle Martino.

Just thinking about playing in the Olympic final at famed Wembley Stadium gives Solo the chills. Of course, there’s tons of work ahead of any such appointment. Solo can tell you all about it.
