Quote of the day: Abby Wambach

“That night getting arrested was one of the best things that has ever happened to me. Because if I don’t get so publicly shamed and publicly humiliated, I don’t think I wake up. I think I was asleep for a lot of years. Asleep to the pleas from my family and friends, and even myself, to get help. So that night I was humiliated enough to wake up.”

– Abby Wambach, on her April DUI arrest. On Monday (Sept. 12), in an interview with The Associated Press, she acknowledged that she had a drinking and prescription-drug problem.
