Abby Wambach's homecoming seemed picturesque in her first season with the Western New York Flash -- a first place regular season finish.

Then Portland, the city Abby currently calls home, walked right into Rochester and smashed that picture perfect finish. They defeated Abby and the Flash in the NWSL championship. Now, Abby is back to pick up the pieces.

Wambach has joined the Flash training camp, a week after things got underway. The team's first game is April 13 in Washington. The team, coming off that runner up finish in the inaugural season of the NWSL and still loaded with talent, including Carli Lloyd.

Wambach did have the choice to play for the Portland Thorn this season, but we all know where her heart is.
