Hrm. I think that if you jump diagonally at the ball, and a good distance of a jump, it will almost force you to follow through.

So, what you're saying is, once you hit the ball, do you just stop your foot right there?

Argh..Landon Donovan.. Taylor Twellman owns him.. :lol: :shock: I really hope you are kidding when you say that? Donovan is on a whole other level than Twellman when it comes to pace, touch on the ball, and shooting/passing/dribbling. The only thing Twellman is better than Donovan at is heading and...

Donovan is one of only 2 people in north american sports to ever make 7 all star games at age 25. the other was Wayne Gretzky.

I did track for a whle, and I do races every week. So, I run a lot. I've been going 3 miles since last summer, when I first started racing.

EDIT: Nope, the best place I got was I think 9th so far. Out of about 250. There are a ton of people doing it, and this guy that is like 65 normally wins it.

Posh never took her sunglasses off.

On ESPN, Skip Bayless said that as long as Posh is there, and they show her every few minutes, the games will stay popular :)

It will only take a couple runs to get it down a few minutes. A kid came running in a race with me like 2 weeks ago. Then, last week, when we did the race again, his time was 3 minutes better. (3 mile race). But, it was still pretty bad, 25:something minutes. So, pretty much, it won't take long to d...

Yeah, it seemed that every time that a pass came to an LA player, they were startled and fumbled around a bit.

If you have a mini goal like I do (12x6, rebounder is 4x6), and a rebounder, you can set up the rebounder to your left or right, and throw it off of it, or kick it, (set it up a distance away) and volley it into the goal.

Maybe that's what they thought too, and that's why they lost.. Getting too arrogant. Yeah, I expected the all stars and the Galaxy to get crushed.

I didn't read through every post, but I didn't see this in the ones I did skim through: He supposedly shot his dogs if they wouldn't fight. And, now I've also seen on ESPN a few times, that some people are trying to say that this is a racism issue.

The thing is, I don't really have a weak foot. That isn't because of practice. I'm just ambidextrous... But, I'll try to see if I can make one foot better than the other by doing that.

Weak foot idea

I just thought of this yesterday. You know how your right side of your brain controls the left side of your body? And in vise versa? Well, I'm not at all too sure about this idea, but I think that it could work. When not playing soccer, trying to use the "weaker" side of your body more, to get more ...

For tickets to LA Galaxy vs Revolution, you have to buy a friggin four pack, which is pretty expensive. But gives you tickets to four games. Anyone think Beckham can actually have enough of an impact to put the Galaxy back into fighting for a playoff spot? They've got the second worst record in the ...
