The time has come for the final (we think) WNT Blog post of 2010. Of course we'll be back early in 2011 as the WNT gets ready for training camp in what will be a HUGE year for the team heading towards the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup in Germany.
For now, we'll leave you with Abby Wambach's favorite-ever holiday gift -- given and received -- and hope you the holidays are wonderful for you and the ones you love. And of course, we want to wish you a Happy New Year...we can't wait for 2011!
U.S. WNT forward Abby Wambach:
“The best gift I’ve ever given is a car. I gave my parents a convertible BMW a couple of years ago and that was awesome. It was a lot of fun. It’s not even like my Dad needed it, he already had a little convertible BMW. But I just felt like growing up I always told myself, if I bought my parents a car I knew I made a level of success I had always dreamed of. That was kind of the inspiration for that one.”
“In terms of the best gift I’ve ever received, I just got a Vitamix blender for a Christmas present. I don’t know if you know anything about me or Vitamix blenders but they’re the best blenders in the world. They rotate the RPMs on it at like 240 miles an hour or something. I love smoothies. I pretty much have a smoothie every day in the morning so it was an awesome present. I screamed when I opened it because I love blenders so much. I know it’s the weirdest thing that I like blenders, but I’m a blender fan.”
