A Letter To My Teammates Before Game Day

For some motivation before the big day.

A Letter To My Teammates Before Game Day
Facebook-University of Denver Women's Soccer

To all my soccer sisters,

Today is the day. We have worked hard, put in the tiring hours, and perfected our mistakes. Now is the time to show everyone what we are made of.

We are here for a reason: To show up and show out. There is NO holding back tonight. We all know what we are capable of, so why not prove it to everyone else on the field?

To my goalies: YOU are our rock. Your voice means something-no matter what you are saying. You see everything before anyone else... use your knowledge and skills and DO NOT back down.

To my defense: You will kick butt tonight. Defend like you have never defended before. Make the extra tackle, communicate with your midfield, jump a little higher for those headers, and be the best defender out there.

To my midfield: You are the PLAYMAKERS. You say, we do. If you work hard for the rest of us, we will work harder for you. The amount of energy you bring to the game is huge--play with your heart and own this game.

To my forwards: SCORE SOME FREAKIN' GOALS! Make the extra run tonight, even when you're tired. If you have a shot, take it! Do not be afraid to take risks tonight. Play the way you know to play, and give it your all.

And last but not least, to my team: HAVE SOME FUN! Remember the feeling of when you fell in love with this sport. Remember why you play. Remember why you are good. Remember all of the hard work we've put in. Remember the feeling of winning.

But most of all, remember who you play for. Whether you play for yourself, for you parents, for you coaches, or for your teammates, there's a reason for it. Tonight we will not disappoint, no matter the outcome of the game. Play your heart out, and do not hold back.

Do not take this night for granted. We have dedicated way too much time to throw it away now. We will determine the rest of our season by how we go into this game tonight. Like I said before, LET'S SHOW UP AND SHOW OUT.

"Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose." -Friday Night Lights

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.

In no particular order, I would like to demonstrate a little culture about the ways Christmas is celebrated or is not celebrated throughout five different religions.
