Well Done, Wambach!

The news came out today that in advance of the 2008 Summer Olympics the Chinese government took it upon itself to create a sort-of “enemies list” of U.S. athletes it feared might cause politically motivated trouble during the Games. Several of them weren’t even competing.

One of those was U.S. women’s soccer player (and soon to be absurdly high-scoring forward for the Washington Freedom of Women’s Professional Soccer — beginning play in April 2009! Sorry for the shameless promotional plug there . . .) Abby Wambach, who missed the Olympics with a broken leg.

Upon hearing today that she was on the Chinese government shit list, Wambach, a member of the organization Team Darfur, said, “This may be the biggest compliment of my life.”
