I thought I knew everything about Sydney Leroux. I guess we’re not as tight as I thought dreamed we were.

Leroux teamed up with her US Soccer teammate and best friend Kristie Mewis for “The LeMew Quiz”, a fun trivia about each of them.

Some interesting facts that came out of the convo:

  • Sydney got expelled from second grade for stealing books
  • Kristie owns a dog that’s older than Benjamin Button, but doesn’t age backward
  • Sydney has a tattoo on her back that includes her mom, a dead tree, and flower

Just when you think you know someone …

The US ladies took care of business against the Netherlands 3-1 and Christen Press continued her assault, scoring twice to give her six goals in seven appearances.

Press has been seriously making up for her lost time with the US program.

Thatcher

So there’s currently a heated debate going on concerning Margaret Thatcher, the former UK Prime Minister who died earlier this week.

Thatcher’s rule brought about some changes in British soccer as she curtailed hooliganism and introduced fan I.D. cards worldwide. But not everyone was pleased with her futbol influence and it’s led to a little indecision about how to handle her passing. The Premier League is currently not requiring teams to honor her, and that’s not sitting well with everyone.

You can read more of the heated details HERE.

The young man you see on stage is not in fact Justin Timberlake, but James Madison soccer player Renaldo Garcia. This, however, was a performance that even Justin would be proud of (minus the outfit … Justin be on his “Suit and Tie” … Renaldo, on his “wife beater and jeans”).

This all happened during a JMU student athlete talent show, and we’re almost embarrassed to tell you that Renaldo DIDN’T WIN! So I’m thinking the winner either had to be the real Justin Timberlake, or one of the judges was a very bitter Brittany Spears.

We’ve missed you, Indi. The baddest freestyler in the country, and North Carolina future star has returned to the world of viral video with her latest effort: a crossbar challenge video.

Don’t try this at … anywhere.

During spring football at Ohio State the Buckeyes initiated their new mascot by putting him directly in the line of fire on the football field.

I don’t know if you’ve ever been in a mascot suit before (I have … long story) but let’s just say your senses aren’t exactly heightened. It’s hot, you can barely see through the eye netting, and you can barely turn your head. So impairing some poor guy to that extent and feeding him to a linebacker is kind of … well, awesome, really.

Well done, Ohio State.

Let’s start from the top: Chelsea FC is releasing a new kit and they want you to buy it … but they’re not going to show it to you. That’s right. All they’re showing you is players like John Terry, Fernando Torres and Juan Mata swimming in blue paint in hope that these disturbing images will compel you to buy something you’ve never seen.

Welp, good look with that. For those of you who actually like to know what you’re buying before you buy it though, I offer an exclusive NEVER BEFORE SEEN look at the new Chelsea FC kits after the jump.

Now you see the red card … now you don’t!

After a crucial decision from the referee awarded one team a penalty kick, the opposing coach completely lost it. He decided to give the referee a piece of his mind by tearing his cards apart. Which makes one wonder, did the referee have a spare pair on him?
