“Spirit of Freedom”

Everything and anything outrageous that Maradona has done in his lifetime, from his promises of streaking throughout Buenos Aires if Argentina won the World Cup, he demands for a particular toilet seat for his place in South Africa, his baiting of the German national side before their match, etc. But what usually isn’t reported is his kind gestures to others like Diego Forlan’s family.

A funny account of England’s national side’s woes during the 2010 World Cup, make sure that you read the last bit, it’s the best part of the article. There was another blog post that was on ESPN but I can’t find it now, talks about why simply making the best American athletes play soccer/football won’t simply solve the issue of why America’s not that good at the beautiful game because of the build and height of the American athlete.
