No Crying in Soccer
I can't believe the players who question why Jürgen Klinsmann has them make scouting videos or requires them to take fitness and blood tests (Now Is the Time in Soccer ...). If they have no desire to do whatever it takes to become a better team, then they should make way for those players who do.

Chance of a Lifetime
The positive attitude of Brian Banks, who was falsely accused of rape and served five years in prison, is to be admired (SCORECARD). Seahawks coach Pete Carroll should also be commended for being the first to offer Banks a tryout in the NFL. Even if Banks ends up making only a scout team, I'm sure he will be grateful for the opportunity to prove his worth.
