Wow so Hodd won the Norwegian Cup...
And I would have thought the Tromso weather would be worse than Ullstainvik considering how far north it is.
I have a feeling that she and her hubby are going to be good for at least a few headlines in the near future.
Checking in again.
We have only one last game to play this season. Rosenborg needs to go to Germany to complete our 2012 schedule.
(that gives me time to again answer some questions to this well kept secret group of BS - so, should we say - the first ten?)
The USMNT season also came to a end. Like in the last game of 2010 I was again allowed to close their season with a few minutes of playing time that in fact caused a positive impact on the FIFA ranking. Even though I am completely aware that I am not competing in an individual sport, I try to find inspiration from those who have had to: train by themselves, being ridiculed, faced life and competitions against the odds - but still have come through and seized their special moments.
Be patient, I have said to myself. Prepare. Wait. Still, - be ready to ignite. But if you can't be supportive of the mission itself - quit.
In all of this, my good friends offer me proverbs and quotes. Sometimes they help me just as they come, and other times they trigger associations that just cannot have been intended.
Do you see how this sums up the above?:
Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.
Regardless of ideology
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too
Hi Mix, what do you think you've improved most over the past year in your game? Do you have an area of your game you're looking to work on in the year ahead?
The Russians like their vodka more.
Here are a couple I have enjoyed recently:
hey mix, i have two unrelated questions.
1. who would you say are the top three players that you've played with that have been the most impressive for you, or that you've maybe been the most in awe of?
2. who are your three favorite moral philosophers and why?
I think that deuteronomy's Shakespeare, Napoleon, Einstein, and Lincoln quotes are all fake. (The Shakespeare and Napoleon ones seem impossible.) Here are some real ones from them.
Julius Caesar, act II, scene ii
Letter to Passariano, September 26, 1797
quoted in The Diary of a Cosmopolitan (1971) by H. G. Kessler
Letter to Horace Greeley, August 22, 1862.
Plans for the offseason? Going on any vacations, or perhaps visiting any of your USMNT counterparts in Europe. What about making a trip stateside?
What did JK tell you in camp about where he sees your role with the national team and did he give you any good advice for improving your game going forward?
How is your Taco Bell franchise coming along? Any shot at you bringing a Taco Bell to Norway?
What's your favorite post-match jersey exchange? Sidebar-what do soccer players do with all those jerseys?
You are my 10 year old daughter's second favorite player behind Alex Morgan. That got me thinking which, (if any,) particular player(s) were an inspiration for you?
And/or who are your top 5 all time players?
If you had to pick any league outside of Norway, which one would best suit your style of play?
Not a question, just wanted to thank you for posting here and providing us with some good insight.
Why don't you realize how lame that Sting lyric is?
(True story...at the time that song came out, I was in a band, just some guys that played out and made beer money on a typical night. Anyway, I thought that song was ridiculous and jejune, so I wrote a response song. The opening lines were
Nuclear war would be bad
Nuclear war would make me sad
My whole family would die
Then I know that I would cry
It went on like that with silly couplets. Mix would probably be most interested in
All my hair would fall out
Of that there'd be no doubt
Then I couldn't get a date
That's a thing that I would hate
Yes, the lyrics are stupid. That was my point.
It ended with
With all due respect to Sting's point of view
You can't solve a problem in 3:22)
Question: What are some of your interests outside of soccer/football?
What are some of your favorite movies, TV shows, books, albums?
[And if you are looking for recommendations: The Assassination of Jesse James, Breaking Bad, Thinking Fast and Slow, Pixies - Doolittle]
Here are all the quotes you need: http://www.nietzschefamilycircus.com/
Sting... Quadrophenia... coastal towns... nuclear bombs....
I'll skip the quote indulgences . . . and ask- if YOU could pick a league to play in next year for a good team, which league would that be?
Who were the players you looked up to as a child, trying to mimic/imitate? What were your favorite moments as a fan of the game, growing up? What shaped your soccer style/philosophy of the game?
1. Touch + Vision.
2. Sliding tackles (not on any turf though )
1) Pontus Farnerud, Erik Mykland (Myggen), Sverre Krogh Sundbø (different kind of player)
2) Philosophers AND practitioners: My Grandma, Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela. (By the way, I have met two thirds of them)
1. Road trip with friends: Arizona - Nevada - California.
2. More like stateline (Lake Tahoe )
Mix, how would you solve the current political impasse and budgetary crisis affecting the US?
Why do you want to know what he told me?
You should be interested in what I told him!
