Ummm … are you watching what I’m watching? These little guys are coming and I don’t think anything can be done about it.
Just think, every five seconds in Spain an FC Barcelona player …. BOOM, they just scored again! We’re in trouble.
Mexico really should’ve done its homework and watched this 2006 gem before they lined up against Clint Dempsey last night. Otherwise, they would’ve known: DON’T TREAD ON THIS!
Yup, this really happened back when Dempsey, A.K.A. “Deuce”, was traveling down the windy 8 Mile road.
Here’s what you should know about this nearly five-minute masterpiece:
On a serious note, Dempsey can be seen at the end of the video visiting the grave of his late sister Jennifer, who died in 1995 at only 16 years old.
Everyone wants to be a baller. John Kerry is no different. Just because he’s the Secretary of State doesn’t mean he wouldn’t trade in his suit and tie for a jersey and cleats … he shouldn’t, though. David Beckham already showed us that soccer isn’t meant to be played in finely tailored threads.
Anyway, Kerry was in Afghanistan to meet with Afghan women members of a U.S.-backed women’s entrepreneurship program, and he thought he’d break the ice with a little soccer. Judging by the completely unnatural pose above, he’s lucky he didn’t break something else.
Lots of running …
That’s my first impression of the Illinois women’s spring season, but, then, hard work in March will only pay off come September. The Illini gave us a sneak peak into their current training with the above video. For a more general look at college soccer from one of Illinois’ own, check out Nicole Denenberg’s series on How to make it as a College Soccer Player.
We mentioned earlier that the Galaxy took their championship White House visit today, well look who decided to drop in? Yup, Mr. Landon Donovan, the 2013 answer to Where’s Waldo? Donovan’s been all over the map as of late, but he did make time for Obama.
David Beckham, on the other hand, couldn’t make it. He was too busy getting naked in China.
Fernando Torres was not selected to represent the Spanish National Team in their World Cup qualifier, and this must have struck him real hard. So hard, that he’s now dressing like Spanish legend Zorro.
Ok, so he’s actually just wearing a protective mask to protect his broken nose from earlier this month, but we can’t help but think he might also be plotting his revenge as a masked man.
Oh, and one other thing: Torres wants you to visit the Spanish salon after the jump.
This time last year Charlie Rugg was struggling to stay awake in French Lit class (Ok, I’m confusing him with my own college career, but you get the point), now he’s hanging out with good friends Landon Donovan and Obama at the White House.
Not a bad turn of events, but that’s what happens when you’re drafted by the defending MLS Cup champion LA Galaxy who are taking their visit to Obama’s crib today to celebrate their title. Personally, I thought there was such a thing as rookie hazing; you know, where you carry bags and miss out on trips to the White House, but I can’t be mad at Rugg, the former Boston College standout who is living it up in his first year in the league.
It’s all downhill from here, bud.
