KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Brandi Chastain found a way.

You remember Brandi. one of the greatest Team USA soccer players of all time - she famously ripped off her shirt after scoring the winning goal at the 1999 Women's World Cup.

U.S. women's soccer Brandi Chastain was inducted into the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame in San Francisco on Monday, but a plaque honoring her turned out to be a bust.

Or perhaps the face on Chastain's plaque looks more like Jerry Gergich, a character from the TV series, "Parks and Recreation". One might say she even deserves a plaque that resembles her instead of an abominable Rex Ryan-lookin' effort.

'Brandi Chastain is one of the most lovely athletes I've ever covered.

The good news? The Hall of Fame in San Francisco said it will redo the plaque.

And soccer fans thought the Cristiano Ronaldo statue was bad.

The eventual correction, however, won't change the confusion Chastain's husband, Jerry Smith, experienced Monday night, when he arrived at the ceremony in San Francisco and couldn't locate her plaque.

Chastain herself gave a diplomatic assessment, saying, "It's not the most flattering". Lucille Ball's statue, first erected in 2009 in NY, was so bad that it earned the infamous moniker "Scary Lucy" by residents, forcing Dave Poulin to quit sculpting for good.

Kevin O'Brien, President of the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame, said, "There's never been anyone, male or female, really happy with their plaque".

One Twitter user observed that Chastain's ability to smile politely next to this disgusting likeness at Monday's ceremony was a greater accomplishment than her World Cup win.

The Chastain plaque was savaged by critics on Twitter, who said the smiling image of the footballer bore closer resemblance to former US President Jimmy Carter, baseball legend Babe Ruth and comic Mickey Rooney. It does not look like Brandi Chastain.
