I went to see the new musical production of Tipping the Velvet while in London over the weekend and it was fan-fucking-tastic. It has now moved to Edinburgh, so if you are anywhere near there between now and November 14, I highly recommend going. The fabulous lead, Laura Wade, talked with The Scotsman about her role.

Abby Wambach has announced her retirement from professional soccer. Here’s what she said about the decision:

“After much deliberation and talking with my friends, family, teammates and our coaching staff, I’ve decided to finally bring my soccer career to an end. While we still have more work to do for women’s soccer, after bringing the World Cup back to the United States this summer, I’m feeling extremely optimistic about the future of our sport. It’s been an amazing, wonderful ride and I can’t wait to see what the next chapter of my life brings.”

Us, too, Abby! We’ll miss you.
