Donovan stretch

To answer your question Donovan … no. No, you will not.

And neither will your 2002 US Soccer teammates, who also posed in horrifying fashion. The photo shoot I’m about to show you after the jump is so amazingly priceless I’m not going to waste any more time with words. I’m just going to say that even 1992 Victoria Beckham couldn’t believe her eyes.

In yesterday’s game between Galasataray and Orduspors, Didier Drogba collided with David Barall. It was an accident that came after a corner, and both players ended up on the ground. Both, by the look of it, were unconscious.

Drogba would soon rise but Barall had to be taken to the hospital for further examination. After the game, Drogba showed his true colors by driving to the hospital in order to ensure that Barall was being taken care of. We are always going to fight to win on the field, but when the game is over we players simply need to respect each other as humans. What Didier Drogba did is not surprising, he has a great character and I wish more players would take after him.

Don’t be surprised if some time next week you see the following headline: “Soccer team DID NOT do the Harlem Shake.”

That’s how big this thing is. I mean, who’s NOT doing it? The Gonzaga women joined the fun during weight training and we pretty much approve. Welcome to party, Zags.

There are two important revelations that come out of the above video:

1. That was a crazy goal!

2. Wait … handball?

Yup. Turns out it’s more than a soccer infraction. Handball is like a really big deal in some countries – apparently, France included. Consider yourself educated courtesy of the 91st Minute.

Ok, so I’ve only seen one goal this spring season (the one you just watched) but, man, what a goal!

Georgia State freshman Aaron Jones drilled this shot out of mid-air this past weekend as his team defeated Clemson 2-1. Jones is from England and plans to major in business. Looks like he’s already handling it!

Illinois senior Nicole Denenberg has seen it all during her four years as a college student-athlete, and now she’s sharing pearls of wisdom in her new blog. Follow her roller coaster stories and helpful advice as she helps you answer the question: Do You Have What it Takes?

It was a bitterly cold February night in Champaign, Illinois, as I headed from my apartment cutting through the freshmen dorm walkways toward the Irwin Indoor Athletic Facility.  I was on my way to assist my coach and teammates with the two-day winter Illinois soccer camp. It was a trip I had made hundreds of times for training, often at the crack of dawn. Going to Irwin was a natural part of my off-season routine. As a second semester senior this would be my last soccer activity in a camp setting. I didn’t have preconceived thoughts or emotions about this particular event. Volunteering was something that was expected of me, and I was proud to participate. Tonight would prove to be something much more special and reflective.

Follow Deneberg’s journey after the jump.

Ever seen a pool stick made out of Iranian guinea pig? What about an owl shirt made out of real life owl? Of course you haven’t; because you’re not livin’ the life of Marquette star John Mau.

John follows in the footsteps of some serious ballers before him with this latest episode of College Cribs. Maybe we’ll never shine quite like John, but at least we get the full tour.

After all, every man lives, but not every man makes it to College Cribs.
