Well... Screwing around with Alcohol before a hard-labor activity is truely not the smartest movement since it will dehydrate you the day after. But since you do not have any problems with your Jager bombs the night before a game, I'm not opposing it- but saying to watch it. I do mess around with be...

I wouldn't be surprised if Brasil makes it into the World Cup :) . But what is getting to my mind is who will Brasil face for the Cup. So many teams are coming from out of nowhere and surprising us all and giving up so many good games since :D .

Strength is necessary for all positions, but making it a priority is not to that level for an attacker. Speed and handling is the priority since they will be moving constantly and toying the defense in order to score. Even College soccer teams do not have strong players in any position, everyone is ...

Re: Any pros in my situation?

I am 13 nearly 14. I practice 1 to 1 1/2 hours a day. But I am not confident enough. Why? I am small and not a big build. I am a striker and I do get my fair share of goals. But I look at the pro's biographies, life stories and stuff like that and they score about 60 goals in 15 games when they wer...

True, but that does not mean he is playing up to par comparing him when he was playing with Man. U.

Yes, he is overrated-it's all about the looks.
No explaining necessary to why he's always looked at

Not as much of a sportsman nowadays with College riding up my behind, lol. I wish that be case, but it is throughout the year. Guess thats what I get for being around friends who smoke and didn't want to be rude in leaving them because they're smoking. My legs on the other hand I have no control ove...

I'll be needing to deal with that soon. I need a pair of Shinguards to also fit my ankle braces. Best advice I'd say is to get a pair of shin guards w/o ankle guards (Ankle braces in general are soo tough and solid, they are like a wrap-a-round ankle guard)

I played Outfield for practically my term in Baseball. I apparently had fast feet and good eyes for a distance pop up or the line drive that the infield cannot get ready for. Even with the sun against my face. I played infield every so often as a 3rd baseman. I got tired of playing baseball (Got bor...

Adrenaline songs can do the trick (Some punk bands like NFG, Greenday etc.)
