Abby Wambach Loves Her Headers, Brain Damage Be Damned


US Women’s Soccer team leaders Hope Solo and Abby Wambach appeared on the Late Show couches last night and certainly held their own against Dave’s snarky line of questioning. When asked about the possible brain damage heading a soccer ball could lead to, Wambach coyly replied, “I’m sorry, what?” and used Megan Rapino’s goal by-way-of-forehead as the perfect example as to why “being dumber for that moment is okay.”

Oh, and semi-related: Hope Solo is going to be on the cover of Sports Illustrated — the first women to do so since June 2010 (Serena Williams).
