If you were watching ESPN's SportsCenter or PTI today, you might have seen a clip of Abby Wambach hitting a guy in the stands with an errant shot during warm-ups for yesterday's match vs. China. The shot just got away from Abby, but she hit it pretty hard, and it flew into the stands and pegged the dude in the arm/back, causing his hot dog to flip out of his grasp and onto the ground. He had his hands full of other concessions, but it seems that that hot dog was the only casualty. Now of course Abby felt bad about pegging the fan, but here's the greater irony: hot dogs are one of Abby's favorite foods. In fact, whenever she is back in her hometown of Rochester, N.Y., she always visits Don's Originals for one (or maybe more, we're not tellin' how many) hot dogs. So, Mr. unknown fan, if you are ever in Rochester and see Abby at Don's, she'll buy you a dog. For your viewing enjoyment, the clip is below.
Editor's Note: She didn't know she'd un-dogged the fan until her teammates told her they saw it on TV.
