13 Things All Soccer Players Love
Samantha Stehlin

Soccer. The world's favorite sport. From a 2-year-old's first kick of the soccer ball to an 85-year-old grandpa watching their grandson's soccer game, everyone of all ages loves a good soccer game. As any true soccer player knows there are a few particular things that all "foot fairies" seem to relish.

1. Wearing brand new cleats for the first time

The best part is having all your teammates stare at the beautiful new "boots" you get to call yours.

2. World Cup Season

It's the summer, and there isn't a care in the world.... unless your team doesn't win.

3. The sound of cleats on pavement

This could be the most satisfying sound in the world. Though awful for your cleats, there's nothing quite like this sound.

4. Penalty Shootouts

With adrenaline pumping through your veins and a victor potentially being crowned at any moment, every soccer player loves the intensity of penalty kicks.

5. Pick-up Games

A quick game with friends on a boring Saturday afternoon is the best way to turn your day around.

6. Team Parties

It is always a crazy time at team parties with a whole lot of bonding between teammates and perhaps becoming a little closer than you ever wanted.

7. Rivalry Games.

A high stress game with bragging rights on the line.... anything can happen.

8. Taking out another player on behalf of a teammate.

Sorry, but sometimes it needs to be done, and boy do you feel good about it after.

9. Weekend Travel Tournaments.

From roaming the halls of the hotel to venturing downtown into whatever city you're staying in, weekend tourneys alway have loads of adventure in store.

10. Playing Barefoot.

Whether playing in the grass or on the beach, there is nothing like the connection your ball makes with your barefoot.

11. The bonds made with your teammates.

Spending everyday of every week together for the whole year really brings you close together and creates unbreakable bonds.

12. The feeling of a win after being behind all game.

When you finally pull off a win from behind in the final minutes of play, it's always a game for the books.

13. Playing in the rain.

People always slip and fall and it's hilarious, and it adds a very dramatic setting to the game.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.
