At the very least, opinions of Chastain’s plaque online have managed to silence the Yanny/Laurel debate for a day.

The new hot question burning up social media today is “Who does Brandi Chastain’s plaque most look like?” The answer is in the eye of the beholder, but there’s one person we all agree it doesn’t look like: Brandi Chastain.
To her credit, San Jose’s Chastain was very kind when asked at the ceremony what she thought of her plaque.
“It’s not the most flattering, but it’s nice,” Chastain said Monday night.
One person hinted Chastain could have done more to deflect attention away from her plaque. As if Chastain stripping down to her sports bra, racing around the room and sliding on her knees in exaltation would make us unsee her supposed likeness.
Then again, no one would have complained.
With apologies to the sculptor, and all in harmless fun, let’s take a look at whose likeness some feel was really captured on Chastain’s BASHOF plaque.

That’s a nice looking Eleanor Roosevelt plaque! https://t.co/4qWHXwJU6r
