Unsportsmanlike conduct is bad, but there's no way it should be comparable to drunk driving.

Yet after Hope Solo called the Swedish soccer team "a bunch of cowards" last week, she was suspended the same amount of time as Michael Phelps was for his DUI!

Almost two weeks ago, the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team's goalie delivered some trash talk after unexpectedly losing to Sweden in the Rio Olympics quarterfinal game, and U.S. Soccer swiftly suspended the athlete over comments that "counter to the organization's principles."

Iconic French Fashion Designer Sonia Rykiel Passes Away At 86

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionR.I.P.Sad Sad

Sonia Rykiel passes away at 86.

This is a huge loss for the fashion world.

Sonia Rykiel, iconic French designer and a pioneer in the industry, has passed away at the age of 86 from complications of Parkinson's disease.

During her lifetime, the designer was lauded for her groundbreaking contributions, such as being the first to make maternity clothes that actually flattered and revealed a woman's pregnant shape instead of hiding it.

Similar to how Coco Chanel liberated women from corsets, Rykiel focused on making clothes for the average woman who valued functionality over fussiness.

In the 1980s, her empire expanded to include fragrances, menswear, and accessories, but she retired in 2009, handing over the reins of her business to daughter Nathalie.

Rykiel was twice given the Legion of Honor, the highest award in France, by French Presidents Francois Mitterrand and Nicolas Sarkozy.

May she rest in peace!

Tragically, Neil passed away on Monday at 36 years old, after losing his battle with cancer.

But, before his death, hospice staff had organized a social media campaign to get Mr. Hanvey that advanced viewing. Last week, Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker in the famed franchise, saw the campaign, and took to Twitter to support the effort, retweeting this post (below):

And, Rogue One director Gareth Edwards also heard about the man's wish, and sent over a special preview version of the film, months before its scheduled December release.

After the Saturday screening, the hospice issued a statement about the heartwarming gesture, and revealed the filmmaker did "all he could" to grant Neil's request:
