Abby Wambach, magicJack ready for first home match since World Cup
By HAL HABIB Palm Beach Post Staff Writer
Updated: 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 26,2011 Posted: 5:05 p.m. Tuesday, July 26, 2011

Japan won the Women's World Cup. The United States placed second. Maybe that doesn't qualify as a newsflash to many, but, believe it or not, it does to enough people who have been congratulating star forward Abby Wambach since her return from Germany. "Some people say, 'Congratulations on winning the World Cup,'" Wambach said. "And I don't have the heart to tell them." What's a penalty shootout loss among friends, anyway? The point is, members of the U.S. Women's national team have received a hero's welcome. It's a welcome that will continue at 7 p.m. Wednesday, when more than one-third of that team reunites for their first home match since the World Cup, as members of magicJack, which plays Sky Blue FC at Florida Atlantic University. Seven national-team members also play for magicJack of Women's Professional Soccer, including the newly promoted Wambach serving as playerlcoach. Goalkeeper Hope Solo, who has wrist and shoulder injuries, is expected to be the only absentee, but backup Jill Loyden is also on the national team. Tonight's homecoming, before what is expected to be a packed facility, should be the latest in the lovefest the . players have received. Take, for example, an exchange on the flight home involving an 80 year old woman and midfielder Megan Rapinoe, who served up the cross that led to Wambach's iconic goal against Brazil. "You did us . proud, girlfriend," the woman told Rapinoe.

"I didn't even think 80 year-olds watch soccer in general, much less women's soccer," Rapinoe said after practice at magicJack Field in West Palm Beach. "It was a pretty touching moment."
w

Touching doesn't exactly describe the scene when Wambach finally stepped foot in her. home after six weeks. Kingston, her English bulldog, was not pleased about celebratlnq his second birthday without her. "I'm like, 'Come here, buddyJ' and he just kind of ignores me," Wambach said. "He gives me his rear end." Kingston may be fickle, but Wambach and Rapinoe's spirits have been lifted by many who weren't fans before the tournament. "The scope that we were able to reach people was just beyond our wildest dreams," Rapinoe said. The Japan loss hasn't done much to dampen spirits. Resonating to a greater degree are the dramatic victories against Brazil and France en route to a classic final. "I think it's telling of the kind of impact that we made," Wambach said. "It wasn't necessarily about winning. We fought until the end and that's a characteristic of American culture." Rapinoe, Wambach and Solo have done the talk-show circuit and fielded endorsement offers. Wambach gave autographs at Macy's in Boca Raton and the players accepted a ceremonial proclamation from the city Tuesday. "It's been very, very tiring, but there's such a small time period in which women's soccer players get the light that shines very bright on them, and you have to really take advantage," Wambach said.

Despite a roster of national-team stars, MagicJack is tied for the final two playoff berths with Sky Blue (of Somerset, N.J.) and Boston. MagicJack has played two road matches since the World Cup, going 0-1-1 before sellout crowds in Atlanta (9,345) and Rochester, Wambach's hometown, where 15,404 onlookers set a WPS attendance record. The FAU field originally held only 1,500 in lawn seating, short of WPS standards, but FAU expects to be able to seat 2,800 tonight and will try to accommodate as many standing-room fans as possible. As of Tuesday afternoon, 600 seats remained, available by phone at (561) 297-0014 or on ticketmaster.com. FAU recommends that walk-up fans arrive early. Meanwhile, players are adjusting to regular-season WPS matches after exiting the global stage. "Emotionally, you put everything into the World Cup for, let's say, the last six months," Rapinoe said. "Every decision is sort of based around that. Now that it's kind of over, I think there's a little bit of a lull. But coming back in, we're playing in front of sold-out crowds so far in the WPS, and there's an easy transition back in."
