Newcastle United’s brand new Puma home kit for the 2015/16 season is available to pre-order. The stylish black and white shirt will go on sale from 9am on Thursday, 21st May and can be pre-ordered from nufcdirect.com now.
The new kits will be worn for the first time in Sunday’s vital Barclays Premier League game against West Ham United. There is a possible relegation situation happening if Newcastle doesn’t get a result.
This dynamic Lionel Messi wax figure shows the Argenitian mid-kick as he prepares to score a goal.
The figure is wearing his #10 Argentina jersey, as he wore it during the 2014 FIFA World Cup games in Brazil.
Studio artists from Madame Tussauds worked for four months to create his figure, calculating over 250 measurements from photo and video references of the athlete in order to perfectly recreate his appearance and capture his on-the-field intensity.
With the introduction of the Lionel Messi figure, the all new and entirely renovated Sports Zone at Madame Tussauds will be complete.
Messi’s figure will be placed in an interactive soccer simulator where visitors can practice their best Messi kick in a virtual soccer arena.
The space features the figures of legendary athletes including Derek Jeter, Carmelo Anthony, Serena Williams, Muhammad Ali, Eli Manning, David Wright and Michelle Kwan.
Renovations to the space include a football locker room for Eli to suit up, a basketball court for Yao to dunk in and a rotating platform to highlight Kwan’s grace on the ice.
Visitors will be able to squat behind the plate while Jeter is in the batter’s box or try their best to last a round with Ali or Evander Holyfield in an all new boxing ring.
Please be advise… this is not the first Lio wax figure. The other one went up a couple of years ago at Madame Tussauds in London which they unveiled at Wembley. Check it:
* I have, about, a billion questions about this movie already.
First things first, I love this trailer. I love everything that this movie can be about. The city of LA, that college CSUN is about 30 minutes from the penthouse. Smokeshows, it sounds crazy but I don’t think I’ve ever heard Emily Ratajkowski speak before. DJ culture, I’ve always been curious and I’ve even known people who have CHANGED THEIR ENTIRE LIVES by picking up the ones and the twos and pulling dj sets – not like one person, but I need two hands. And, ‘coming-of-age ttype of movies.
Cole (Zac Efron), a 23-year-old DJ who struggles in the Hollywood’s electronic dance music scene, has dreams of becoming a major record producer. Eventually, older DJ James (Wes Bentley), begins to mentor him, but Cole makes a connection with James’ girlfriend, Sophie (Emily Ratajkowski). When Cole’s relationship with Sophie blossoms and his friendship with James begins to break down as a result, he is forced into difficult decisions over his future.
I would go as far as to say that this movie may not be the breakout hit of the summer (I want* to say that this might be better than the Entourage movie) but this has a feeling of one of those movies that will be around for a while.
Don’t sleep, Zac is a pretty good actor. And, I’m just going to assume that Emily Ratajkowski is pretty good at everything.
* I want to say it, but its just not going to happen. Same production company, and WB is putting waaaaay more behind Entourage than this one. But, I will be closely watching the Rotten Toms scores, because I’m going to say that this one will get better reviews. Relatively speaking of course.
~~ If you go back to the mid 1990′s, there was a big momentum push off the backside of the 1994 World Cup Final in the United States… Soccer was everywhere and there were realy only two brands that were representing the game.
And us ‘Latchkey Kids’ were repping hard. Boots consisted of Copa’s / World Cup’s / Puma Kings / Perla Negra’s / Lanzera’s and a few other obscure brands that we would search for every month when the latest EuroSport Magazine would land in the mailbox. Those were ‘Christmas Morning’ days.
Bouncing from house to house with you crew… Training session to training session on your skateboard / bike… Getting home and raiding the refridgerator… And doing it all over the nex day.
Those were the iconic moments of our youth.
To see all of the soccer brands taking their base elements and (very quietly) utilizing them in other genres has been really incredible to watch. Take these adidas Busenitz :: Hemp / Suede above.
Mia Hamm is the soccer champion widely regarded as the world’s best all-around women’s soccer player. At 15 she became the youngest woman to ever make the U.S. Women’s National Team and went on to win two FIFA World Cups in 1991 and 1999. By her retirement in 2004, Hamm’s 158 goals made her the record holder of international goals among both male and female soccer players. – MAKERS
In this MAKERS video, our favorite and your favorite female soccer legend Mia Hamm talks about her early love for the game and how it led to an incredible career and life. She talks about the ’99 Womens World Cup, some of the early struggles of acceptability and how that wonderful win could and did, inspire and open a whole new world of sports for girls.
MAKERS (which I was not aware of until about 20 minutes ago) is a digital and video storytelling platform that aims to be the largest and most dynamic collection of women’s stories ever assembled.

A lot of writeups have been going on the internets in the last few days, but a few hours ago the LAFC team made it official. They held a press conference in South Los Angeles today, on site, and announce that they are working with the City of Los Angeles and the owners of the LA Coliseum site, to build a stadium on their grounds.
“The proposed sports complex will not only promote the same excitement in our diverse city, but also bring an infusion of private investment to South LA,” said City Council president Herb Wesson.
Reportedly, the mayor’s office and the University of Southern California, which controls the Sports Arena are all game for it.
“We’ve already got all the permits.” said co-owner Magic Johnson.
He continued, “The public and private sectors got to come together when you’re building a stadium of this size. This is going to cost about $250 million, but everybody came together and made it happen.
Well, well, well…. there you have it then. This is pretty exciting news for MLS, the city of Los Angeles and fans of soccer.
It’s funny because I got a text earlier this afternoon from a non, and this is it, word-for-word:
“More MLS and still no NFL in LA…smh. Steve, I already know that you are in for season tickets.”
Just think about that one for a moment… two MLS teams based in Los Angeles. Winning championships, building world class stadiums, getting public excitement…. and the biggest sport in the United States (dollars-wise at least), who is absolutely printing money has had absolutely no presence in LA for over 2 decades.
