The first thing Abby Wambach did after winning the World Cup was rush to the stands to kiss her wife

So it was no surprise that after the final whistle blew and the US women’s national team became World Cup champs for the first time since 1999, Wambach sprinted toward the stands to embrace her wife, Sarah Huffman.
