Listen Up

U.S. head coach Greg Ryan, forwards Abby Wambach and Heather O’Reilly, and defender Christie Rampone met with a fairly large media contingent at the U.S. hotel today during the USA’s regular daily press briefing. There were quite a few Swedish reporters there, one of whom asked Abby about what she though the Swedish players saying that she “goes to the ground a bit too easily.” Perhaps the Swedes have never heard the saying, “the bigger they are, the harder they fall,” and with the beating Wambach takes during games, you’d spend some time on the turf as well. Note: Wambach answered the question with class and tact. To listen to the quotes from the press conference, check the podcast on and on Thursday morning check out the next episode of Studio 90: China ’07.

“the bigger they are, the harder they fall,”

Wambach is a tough nut to crack so of course people are always trying to bring her down but she will never be brought down easily! :D

Ah but Abby does it with such grace and comes up ready to fight. We hope the refs are aware that she and a few others are often targeted?

Sounds like they're trying to get in her head already. Too bad for them Abby is way too tough and smart for that!
