New Mexico Elizabeth Lambert is making women’s soccer exciting to watch. Taking a page out of the Tonya Harding book “Guide to Dealing with the Competition”, Lambert took out her anger on BYU with some WWF moves.

I think Lambert’s apology is pretty weak.
I let my emotions get the best of me in a heated situation. I take full responsibility for my actions and accept any punishment felt necessary,” Lambert said. “This is in no way indicative of my character or the soccer player that I am. I am sorry to my coaches and teammates for any and all damages I have brought upon them.
“I am especially sorry to BYU and the BYU women’s soccer players that were personally affected by my actions. I have the utmost respect for the BYU women’s soccer program and its players.” Source ESPN
My suggestion for Lambert is enjoy your fifteen minutes of fame… Tick Tick Tick.
