Watch Abby Wambach's Wife Glennon Doyle Hilariously Explain Offside

Author Glennon Doyle, wife of Abby Wambach, helped others prepare to watch the USWNT by explaining what offside is. Kind of.

One of the most confusing soccer rules is offside. All of us soccer fans know the difficulty of trying to explain how offside works to first-time watchers. Though it is an important part of the game, it is also one of the most difficult to understand, especially when the goalkeeper comes into play like in the 2010 World Cup opener.

Glennon Doyle, author of the books "Love Warrior" and "Carry On, Warrior" and the wife of all-time leading international goal scorer Abby Wambach, explained what offside is in a hilarious way for those who were sitting down to watch the Women's World Cup for the first time.

While this is a parody (and a great one at that), new soccer fans can get behind "offside is not for us to understand."

Doyle describes other parts of the game as well in the full video below.
