Mia Hamm gives great testimonial: Abby Wambach by Mia Hamm

As a side note, I can’t get enough of Abby Wambach.

I was having a conversation with someone or a group of folks a few weeks ago and I think it was right after the Grantland interview with Bill Simmons that Abby and Alex did, I was remarking about how incredible a woman she is. Every time you hear her speak, I just feel good about life.

Obviously she’s a great athlete, but she just seems like an incredible person. Like, I’d like to have a beer with her and just talk about life. I don’t know if there is a person who loves the game more, but also, she is all about making this game something special in America.

There are five different covers and Kanye is thee guy of this issue, but a ton of content on Ruth Ginsberg, Bradley Cooper, Lauren Powell Jobs, Bob Iger and Misty COpeland. If you aren’t hip to Misty, she’s special. Don’t miss it!

Watch :: Brian Dunseth score the first ever RSL home goal 10 years ago today #Dunnyversary

April 16, 2005 Real Salt Lake defender Brian Dunseth headed in the first ever home goal in the Claret-and-Cobalt’s inaugural home game at Rice-Eccles Stadium.

Dunny is too good of a guy to post this on TOW but not enough that he didn’t tell us it was the anniversary of the goal as soon as we got off the plane, so I’m going to throw it up for him.

Solid movement, solid header, solid goal, but the celebration is what makes this all time.

Outstanding.

I’m kidding, he didn’t tell us as soon as we got off the plane.

It was when we got in the car.
