Awesome moment here from the PSG teammates as David Beckham has told everyone that this PSG finale will be his final game playing the sport professionally and he plans to retire. Love him or hate him, there is no denying his contribution to the game, and seeing someone go out on his own terms after an absolutely ridiculous career spanning a whole lot of countries and whole lot of games and a whole lot of trophies, is awesome. Shouts out to David Freaking Beckham.
* PSG won 3 – 1
Check out some really cool video after the jump…..
Roberto Mancini, the former Man City boss, who hasn’t spoken to the media since being sacked after a second place fininsh following a year in which his side won the Premier League, broke his silence with a full-page ad in the Manchester Evening News(paper) to acknowledge ‘Three Unforgettable Years’ and thank the millions of Manchester City supporters who have been along for the ride.
“Tangier is one of the few places left in the world where, so long as you don’t proceed to robbery, violence, or some form of crude, antisocial behavior, you can do exactly what you want.” – Anthony Bourdain
Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown is a show that you should be watching. What Parts Unknown is, is a travel and food show on CNN, that premiered last month where Anthony Bourdain travels to places that are unknown to most people and give his very Bourdainian take on the culture, its people, and most importantly its culinary treats that to this point may be undiscovered by most. The show is wildly entertaining and I’ve been looking for a way to shoehorn it into a post on TOW, and when I happened to be watching the Tangier episode this morning and saw them walking down an alley, I noticed this soccer storefront and knew it would be a good Random Soccer in Random Places post.
You know, when I first saw this show I made the comment on my fb that I am fed up with foodie types on TV and in real life, and AB is the only person this side of Tom Collichio that I will tolerate talking about food for more than 35 seconds, and I found some episodes on youtube so that you can see what I’m talking about. If you have the time, check out the Canada episode because Bourdain and some of his friends have one of the most absolutely incredible meals that I have ever seen in my life. Just as a side note, this show is so good, CNN picked it up for a second season a couple of days after the first episode aired. This is one of the best written and best shot shows on tv. Watch it.
~~ Kinda respect the fact that Neymar is taking his time in deciding where the next stage of his career and life is taking him. If you follow him on Instagram, kid just is having the time of his life with his boys. Money isn’t an issue for him (can’t say the same for his club Santos), so it’ll be VERY interesting to see which club his chooses and whether it’s for the chance to win trophies or to live the lifestyle in which he’s enjoyed so far.
~~ Probably four or five years ago I decided it was time to re-up my ‘High’ game…. Something about the feel of Dunks / Blazers / Originals Hi’s / Nizza Hi’s / Mid’s etc. and the way they feel around the ankles.
Maybe it’s just a subconscious thing as a former player who always played with taped ankles or a little skate rat growing up in the LA area, but I find my self reaching for those first (unless I’m heading out for a run).
These right here are something special. Shorts, Jeans or Suit Kicks.
And again, this is why I love Premier. P-Rod’s shop has pretty much every type of kicks that I’m looking to wear.
More Looks at the Burgundy / Aquamarine Dunk High’s after the Jump…….
~~ Pretty incredible to stop and think about the goal haul Frank Lampard has had for Chelsea, breaking Bobby Tambling’s record of 202 goals scored at the club (back in the 1960′s-70′s) from his midfield position…. But it’s not just the amount of goals he’s scored, but the amount of games and minutes he’s logged since joining Chelsea in 2001 from West Ham, his work rate, passing and vision for the game….. And don’t forget to throw in the 95 appearances for England into the equation.
You very, very rarely hear about Lampard being injured and hat’s a testament to his professionalism, taking care of his body and just pure luck in never picking up a serious injury.
