What teams do you support?

L.A. Lakers, Barcelona

I play a bit like...
You know, I love to think I can bend it like Beckham or shoot just as well as Rooney and can do moves just was well as Cristiano Ronaldo, but obviously that is me being a tad cocky!
All jokes aside, I really cannot identify with just one player. I like to think that by just watching the game I can pick up qualities from many great players out there.

Who is the biggest joker on the team?
Kathryn Watson

Scoring a goal fo rmy team to make it to the ECNL championships in our last tournament together.
