I second the no pop. Drink water and then maybe a sports drink like gatorade after the tryout depending on how much you sweated and worked. I would try to stay on the light side of eating, nothing too heavy or greasy like a hamburger. Some pasta would be good. You can't really do a whole lot right n...

If you have mono you need to rest no doubt. I'm surprised you are even considering training, mono makes you tired all the time and have no energy. Your best bet is to lay in bed and rest, I know it seems tough to do but its for your own good. If you don't rest you may be prolonging the sickness. I'v...

The United States is going to have a women's pro league starting in 2009. I think they only have a few teams right now but they'll probably expand later on. I'm excited for it.

First off good luck with making your video and sending it to clubs. Have you thought of sending it to any clubs in league 2? It couldn't hurt, the more clubs you send it to the better chance you would have of someone seeing it.Good luck!
