What did I tell you about Abby Wambach!

I couldn't take it. I saw the game was 1-1 and knew it must be getting close to the end. So I snuck downstairs to the cafeteria just in time to watch the two overtime periods. And wouldn't you know it, Abby Wambach scored the game-winning goal with a header off a corner kick!

I'm not sure what you told us about Abby Wambach. The link you provided brings me to a page that asks what my interest is. Having no interest in anything but learning about Abby Wambach, the question defeats me and I go away with no information.

Your browser must be doing funny things! This post refers to this post (http://www.livejournal.com/users/spwebdesign/130620.html#cutid1), which links to this article (http://soccernet.espn.go.com/feature?id=306895&cc=3888) about Abby Wambach.

It isn't my browser. It's me. I dislike being asked for information before being allowed to enter a site. I didn't provide the information, so I didn't get in.

I wouldn't think either site would be asking you for information. Oh well.

Abby Wambach is a member of the U.S. Women's soccer team. She is the heir apparent to Mia Hamm, who has been U.S. Women's soccer for the past twelve years or so and is retiring from international play after the Olympics. Abby is an incredible soccer player and exciting to watch. The goal she scored against Brazil in the early round reminded me of the goal Diego Armando Maradona scored in the World Cup some 15 or so years ago where he basically dribbled by the entire opposing squad to score the goal. Abby dribbled by 4 or 5 defenders, faked a pass, and then placed a perfect shot in the back of the goal. Her goal in the gold medal match was less spectacular (a header off a corner kick) but incredibly clutch.

I'll take your word for it. I don't think much about the finer points or the heroes of the sports I watch. I've been watching rugby for decades and barely understand what's happening, Aussie football for a much shorter period with the same result, but I still enjoy watching them ... or soccer, when the mood strikes me.

You said you wanted to find out who Abby Wambach is but couldn't access the article. I simply provided a brief summary.

Yes, you did. I should have acknowledged that before making my remarks concerning my attitude toward sports. My bad.
