Girls and Football

Girls play football too. They may be concerned about many other things as compared to boys – things like acne which make them go to sites like, make-up and boys – but that doesn’t mean that they can’t play good football.

I have trained with a girl from our country’s national team and I would say that she plays better than a lot of the other boys that I know who play soccer. So do not underestimate girls who play soccer.

An E-mail from a Soccer Mom in the Philippines

Here is another letter from a subscriber in the Philippines:

Dear Football Videos and Pictures,

I am a mom who has a son who wants to learn about soccer. I do want him to get involved in that sport even though it is not so popular in our country, but I am hesitant because I do no think he is physically up to it. What would you suggest that I do? Do you think I should allow him and just let him take the best multivitamin tablets available? My son is 7 years old. Thanks.

Soccer Mom from the Philippines

Hello, Soccer Mom from the Philippines. I believe that you know what is best for your son and that you know your son better than anyone else. If you feel he is not up to it then don't let him join, but I hope you would consider this, too. His football training will definitely help him develop physically. Maybe, at first, he would have adjustments because soccer is quite strenuous. But, in the long run, he will develop his endurance, agility and how to coordinate his muscles as he trains. But, again, you know your son better.

Popular vs Non-popular Brands

Using well know brands sometimes means that you are getting the quality you are paying for. Like in football gears, the well known brands’ shoes, jerseys and socks do last longer that unknown brands. In skin care, Obagi, a real high end brand of acne skin care products and systems, is also effective, they say. But this is not always the case because I have found other brands that are not real popular that can last longer.

Real Madrid 2-0 AC Milan Highlights and Goals: 10/19/2010

Real Madrid took another big step towards the last 16 of the Champions League with a comfortable Group G win over AC Milan at the Bernabeu. The hosts tok the lead when Cristiano Ronaldo's free-kick sneaked through the wall and it was 2-0 when Mesut Ozil's shot deflected towards the goal off Daniele Bonera. Andrea Pirlo's free-kick struck the bar and Clarence Seedorf blazed over for Milan but they were easily second best. Angel di Maria and Gonzalo Higuain both wasted chances as Real cruised home for the win.

E-mail Sent from India

Below is an em-mail sent to me by a person subscribed to my blog:

Dear Football Videos and Pictures,

I am a high school soccer player based in India and I would like to know if you have tips on how to lose weight really fast. I have been out of shape during summer and gained a lot of weight. I hope you can give some specific things I can do. Thanks.

HS Football Player form India

Thank you for taking time to e-mail us. If you are wanting to get back in shape and lose weight, my main recommendation is to run laps in the football field and get back into regular training with your club. If you do not have a regular training schedule, you can do it on your own. Training is the key and in a few weeks you can get back into shape with the proper training. Try to do jogging laps and also do speed and endurance training exercises.

Keep Yourself From Injuries

Getting injuries can hamper one’s career in football. The treatment and rehabilitation will take a lot of time depending on the severity of the injury. A lot of time is also consumed on getting the player back to match fitness sometime using a male fat burner supplement but most of the time through rigorous training and exercise. So, always make it a point to do stretching exercises and strengthen muscles that can prevent common injuries in soccer.

Football Games from Gaming Companies

The popularity of the world cup has prompted gaming companies to make and sell games out of the sport. The companies have made games for different game consoles like the Xbox, PS3, Wii and it all started with games that can be played on desktops or computers. But for the latter, one must have fast and powerful CPU specifications and games can be better appreciated if viewed on large desktop screens. Football games rock!

Why Do You Catch Your Breath?

Are getting tired easily when you play football? Maybe you have been exercising but you still feel weak and try to catch your breath when doing physical activities out of your normal routine. Have you been regularly visiting those cigar retailers? That could be one reason. Another reason could be because of lack of sleep or proper nutrition. You can actually diagnose why you are feeling that way. Try the process of elimination and you’ll find out.

Drogba's Season Average So Far: One Goal per Match

Didier Drogba's goal in the 39th minute for Chelsea's 2-0 win against Arsenal was his 13th goal in 13 matches, an average of one goal per match. This is an indication of how important his role in the club is but not minimizing the value of the defense and the midfielders. Chelsea's team effort has allowed them to score 4 points clear Manchester City who is just one point ahead of Manchester United.

What are Good Job Sites?

If you are looking for health care job sites in the internet you will probably directed to big sites such as Monster or other similar sites. There are also generic sites that provide not just job specific but country specific jobs. The best job sites are those that provide search capabilities and can give you job offers that are updated regularly.

Choosing the Right Team

For a football player or any athlete, when choosing a team or a company it is important to look at the track record of the organization. It is very much like choosing a medical and financial service company that can assist people that need to get social security disability insurance. It helps to know that the organization one will depend on or be a part of can deliver. But it is also important that you know how you can be an asset, too.

I Need to Get Back

I posted the pics of the last tournament our club joined where we won a match but lost a second and eventually did not qualify for the finals. Back then, I was in tip top shape and had no need for some diet pills. Now, I am working out but haven’t had much aerobic exercise that would make me have the endurance and stamina to last 90 minutes on the pitch. I need to get back to exercising again.
