Abby Wambach & Hope Solo, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Hope Solo is the starting goalkeeper for the US Women's soccer team, but it was her precision shooting aim that impressed on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS). David Letterman came up with a unique soccer experiment for Solo and fellow star of the U.S. Women's World Cup squad Abby Wambach.

The pair joined Letterman outside The Ed Sullivan Theater, and their objective was to kick soccer balls into the open side doors of taxis driving by. It proved far more difficult than you might have imagined.

Wambach is the highest scorer for the US national team, but it was Solo who scored the first hit. And she did it while holding a floor length dress above her knees in one hand. It's certainly a memorable way to hail a cab.
