    league team. As outspoken as men are in sports, this type of punishment is not something you would see in men’s soccer. This is supported by comments from people in the industry such as Rich Nichols, the executive director for the USWNT Players Association when he stated, “We also question whether this action would ever have been taken against a male player or coach, who, in the heated moments after a frustrating defeat, questioned the tactics of the opposing team” (Twitter). Men are often…

    The Touch of a Snake I remember the day of November 6th, 2008, the day the incident happened. It was a sunny, beautiful shinny day outside, wind blowing, leaves falling kids running, and the smell of fresh air filled the place. That day was the day my friends and I decided we should go outside and chill. Tripping over the carpet in front of my door was just the beginning of my adventure’s life. That wasn’t the worse that had happened; of course I had injuries from working out the day before,…

    For a long time I had no fear in taking action. This changed quickly when my parents forced a young elementary school version of myself to begin playing sports in an attempt to expand my horizons. I was only in the first grade when my parents decided I would play soccer. There wasn’t even any particular reason for my parents choosing soccer over any other sport. After the generic tedious paperwork and payments all the kids got their picture taken and were assigned to a team. After some time my…

    Step by step we lined up and walked to the center of the field, all around us the sound of the Olympic music played. I felt as if nobody could touch us, we were on top of the world. Then, we stood proud, hand over our hearts as the National Anthem played and as the last words of the song came to a close, reality returned, nerves overtook me and the butterflies trying to escape from my stomach. For one last time we huddled as a team and yelled, “Cyclones!” As we will face many different…

    I have played soccer for most of my life, however at the age of 17, I wasn’t as good as I wanted to be. I wasn’t as small or fast as I was a few years before. I had gained some weight and slowed down a lot. I was going to have to become a lot more skillful since I could no longer out run my opponents. First of all, you would think that all the years that my team had been together, we would be the best team in the league, but that was not the case. We were a group of skillful players that…

    Narrative Essay It was the Tuesday night before my 14th birthday, at the Greenville Track Club summer all-comers meet, that I first felt the pain of running. Even though I hadn’t trained at all beforehand, I jumped in one of the mile heats anyways. The first two laps went without much trouble, and I was feeling good. I have been told that the first lap of a mile race is run off of nervous energy, and the second lap is run off of the momentum of the first, but the third lap is when the race…

    I just focus on school and nothing else. Also, my dad always told me about how in his home country he used to just relax after school with his friends and play soccer. He said that soccer balls used to be really expensive so his whole class would pitch in and buy one, and then they would spend the whole afternoon playing with the soccer ball. He also told me that playing soccer and spending time with loved ones should be what life is made of. That is why I surprised him with a game of soccer…

    Heads Up: causes and effects of brain injuries in athletes Each individual raindrop crashes against the thousands of fake green strands of artificial turf that creates a slippery battlefield. The rustic benches are stacked endlessly to provide an ultimate view of the fierce duel that is going to begin at any second. The crowd is roaring as steaming hot chocolate is spilling, and the stands are squeaking as they sway back and forth from the uncontrolled chants. The tension is forming, the little…
