“Manuel is part of the team, and when the team goes to the Südkurve to celebrate, he will come with us. We will do everything together: when we win, and sit in the locker room and be sad, if we lost. That shows that we are a team, and that we’ll do everything together.” ~ Philipp Lahm
my heart hurts
One of your teammates won the Golden Boot at the 2010 World Cup. How can a 20-year old play this way?!
- It’s because he is crazy! (laughs) All the time he’s chatting, chatting – he’s not silent even for a moment, like the radio! Everyone in the hotel asleep - and you can hear his voice through the wall. Muller is a funny guy. This is very good for a team to have a person with such a personality. And he’s a great player too.

Thomas is a manchild. An adorable weird little man child who can occasionally morph into some weird sex god. I don’t even know, man.
Charles Barkley • The Hall-Of-Fame power forward speaking out about homosexuality in sports, in the wake of Phoenix Suns President and CEO Rick Welts coming out in an New York Times story over the weekend. Barkley’s comments are earnest and worthy of notice, especially in recent weeks that have seen sexual orientation become a focal point in the NBA. The impetus of it all, to some extent, was the very public stance the league took when Kobe Bryant hurled a slur at an official. Bryant received a s stiff fine, and to his credit to some extent, he later partnered with a gay rights group for public education. Then, Phoenix Suns players Grant Hill and Jared Dudley shot a PSA denouncing the use of “gay” as a playground insult (a move that invariably and depressingly got them called “gay” a lot via Twitter). It was on this recent foundation that Welts came out. Courage like this brings us ever closer to a more enlightened society, so simply, thank you. source (via • follow)
I am very happy to be a Suns fan right now. Let’s not forget, Charles Barkley played for the Suns and helped them make their second trip to the NBA Finals, while winning the MVP award.
Charles still lives in the Phoenix area and is a very active member of the community there.
Same quote, just with added description above.
Maybe it’s just the idiotic-prejudice aspect of the world that’s going to end on Saturday?
And here we have in jpg form why I will always love Charles Barkley. One of my favorite people in the world, bar none.
I like him lots.
