The Daily Drool: Abby Wambach

17 Jul


I’ve got a special soft spot in my heart for US Women’s National Team forward Abby as she’s a fellow upstate New Yorker by birth but even if that wasn’t the case, I’d love her anyway. What can you say about her that’s not already known? She was a  monster player at the high school and college levels, she’s an Olympic gold medalist, won the US Soccer Athlete of the Year 4 times as well as the ESPY for Best Play of 2011 and has been a mainstay of the national team since 2003.  She’s played 162 games for her country and scored 121 times (to date)! She’s currently tied with the legendary US player Michelle Akers for most World Cup goals (12). Hopefully in today’s final, she’ll break that record.  She also plays for the magicJack of Women’s Professional Soccer. Abby is a fierce, dedicated woman and I’m proud that she represents my country. USA! USA! USA! USA!

    Am heartbroken for Abby. This was her last chance at a World Cup, she stepped up to the plate, too bad some of her team mates didn’t.

      Seriously? I thought it was a hard fought game. No shame in losing to such a good opponent.

        How do you miss that many pks? Also defense made some huge mistake.all in all it was like watching Arsenal, all too familar.
        People talking shit about Hope Solo need to stop.

          No one should be talking shit about Hope – she’s played her heart out. Hey, at least the US aren’t Brazil who missed every penalty kick in the Copa America today. But yes, both those Japan goals were the result of some big ass defensive mistakes. We could have put that game to bed much earlier if it wasn’t for that damn invisible force field around Japan’s goal. I can’t believe how many near misses there were. Argh.
