The less society knows about popular individuals, the more intriguing they become.
In reference to the first slide, Hope Solo will be 31 years old soon. She's played for the national team for quite a while and has been in the spotlight the entire ride.
Furthermore, she has never hesitated to divulge personal details.
In fact, Solo will add published author to her resume of accomplishments on August 14 when her autobiography hits shelves.
Solo claims, "People think I'm an open book. People know nothing about me."
Yet the constant shenanigans—such as the latest telling of being conceived during a conjugal visit—may have many feeling as if they've heard enough about Solo.
Then there's Alex Morgan.
There's still so much to be learned about the seemingly quiet up-and-comer.
Most fans likely don't even know the California (Berkeley) alum is dating the Seattle Sounders' Servando Carrasco or that she was the first overall selection in the WPS 2011 draft.
It's plausible the only thing the majority of fans know about the cute All-American California girl next door is her ability to burn defenders en route to a goal.
Mystery is intriguing.
