“[Mia] looked me straight in the eye,” recalls Wambach, “and said, ‘Abby, you’re going to break my scoring record one day.’”
“[Alex] said, ‘I wish I could have scored as much and have all the experience you have,’” recalls Wambach. “I just looked at her and I said, ‘well, Alex, you’re going to. You’re going to score a lot more goals than I am. You’re going to have a much more successful career than I’ve had. And that’s the whole point of this. That’s why I’m doing what I do.’” (x)
I thought I was done crying.. BUT THIS PICTURE
So it’s hard for me to see Abby doting on Alex without thinking about an SI article (way back when) on Alex that told the story of how Alex took a poor shot in training and some were peeved with her for it. Abby told her not to second guess herself and not to stop taking her shots. This was when Alex was just working into this team. Abby never stops believing in her, or any of her other teammates. Yet another reason to adore this team.
