Now here’s what we love about Abby Wambach (and marketing wizardry).

Gatorade has unveiled a new commercial starring Wambach where she discusses her final game, even tearing up at times.

And if you have an affinity for great athletes, the USWNT, or just solid speeches, there’s a good chance you’ll be on Tear Train into Chillsville.

Entitled “Forget Me”, it ticks a lot of boxes, but no one’s going to forget No. 20 anytime soon; Nor does she really want to disappear from memory.

Legends live on. That said, we get the general idea.

As part of the campaign, Wambach disabled her Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts hours before Wednesday’s match, sending out her last message as “Make them forget me.”
