Abby Wambach wins Women's World Cup: So much stuff for you to go click on and marvel at: Wambach yells "World champions! FINALLY!" | Wambach runs to wife after win | Wambach lifts trophy with fellow lifer Rampone | Best photos | Lloyd gives Wambach armband | Wambach's stunning career retrospectiveA long-view look at Wambach's career — basically, from having her marriage to her wife certified as the law of the land to finally winning her sport's ultimate title, this has been a hell of a fortnight for one of the best Gators ever.

Is Wambach the best Gator ever? I'm not sure. But there's a debate, and it's worth clicking through here. (I'll tackle this later this week.)

Six teams that could trade for David Lee: Lee is such a weird commodity now: He's not a bad player, just one with well-known limits as a defender and one whose salary isn't really commensurate with coming off the bench. But if teams are doing this "taking Player X into space" thing with large salaries while also not necessarily trying to get better on the court so as to preserve lottery standing (read: the Sixers), Lee's too good to help accomplish that. So odd. (Tim Cato, SB Nation)

Your Gators moment of zen:

Happy this lady can go out on top. From UF to WC Champ.
