1) doing what I love: People today are all so miserable with their work, which overall leads to a depressive streak within themselves. I think a lot about what I want to do for a career, and I decided that I need to stay in the game to truly be satisfied with my career for the long run, and since soccer is pretty much my entire life right now, I decided why not go for the gold. Even if I don't make it, I will probably pursue a career in sports medicine or sports agency.
2) The money: let me be perfectly honest, the money that comes from being a big player is pretty important to me for two reasons. The first is obviously that I want to be able to live in luxury and provide for my family with absolutely no worries. Second off, there is so much I want to do for the world that having a lot of money would make me able to have more of an impact. I would love to pour money into the extremely poor part of my town, buy the children soccer balls for the holidays, and construct a free soccer school with canchas (street soccer cages, I don't really know the proper termanology in english) to get the kids off of the street.
3) to ignite US soccer: The USMNT is so one-dimensional in everything it does, and there is almost no creativity in their forwards. There has never really been an in the hole technical striker like myself, and flair is something that attracts the urban youth (look at And-1 mix tapes, that brought so much attention to street balling). A creative spark on the field is what is going to drive the people to accepting the sport, not a fluke showing in a single world cup with ugly yet effective play. And when the urban masses start playing street footie and really becoming technical, that is when the US can start to think about becoming a competitive team. Any good team today (Argentina, Brazil, France, etc) is made up of stars who were brought up primarily playing street footie, so therefore it is my thinking that this is necessary for building an actual great team.
4) to play for Arsenal: Sorry to sound arrogant, but I will never play for a rival of the Gunners, I am just too much in love with the club. It would be an absolute dream to walk down that Ashburton Grove tunnel onto that carpet of a pitch, I get chills just thinking about it.
5) To have a job in which my fitness is manditory, therefore meaning that I will be healthy for the rest of my life due to the habits that a good pro should have with their body.
6) The family atmosphere of a pro club: these places really are like family, and to be in such a close knit group for years just sounds fantastic.
God damn brewery!!!
