Although Wambach has become famous for using her head, she actually spends most of her time on the field “inside my own blood,” as she puts it, in a perfect example of how she speaks — like an amateur poet. At first the phrase doesn’t seem to mean anything, but as she keeps talking, its significance bubbles up as an abstract truth. Wambach doesn’t live in the middle lane. She is either blazing past on the left or inching along on the right. Some of this is a necessity because the way she plays — like a driver redlining her car’s engine — ensures she can’t stay in that headspace (or blood-space) for too long. “She’s all or nothing,” Huffman says. “She’s either going to wake up every morning for a year and work out and run, or she’s going to relax, sit on the couch and not move.” (X)
