Sweet Stuff

See what being a loyal friend and a world class athlete can get you? Ice cream!

I scream, you scream, we all scream .... :)

I have a tremendous amount of respect for Carli Lloyd.

Spread your words around Carli. Over & over again:

"I really hate drama," said Carli Lloyd of Delran, N.J. "It's draining; it's mentally draining. It's a waste of time. Hope and I have gone way back. I played with her, I guess, for four years on the under-21s. I was a little bit intimidated by her at first, but we grew closer. Everybody makes mistakes in their life. I just knew she was a great person."

So Lloyd chose to remember more than some ill-chosen words.

"There were a lot of emotions involved," she said. "I think there's been some people that kind of regret how they handled the situation. Hope stayed strong through it all."

Note the "a little bit intimidated by her at first" part. Hope, like Abby, has a very strong personality. I'm willing to bet a very good friend once you accept that.

8 days to go - let the countdown begin!

Little unwieldly that ice cream name...could have just called it "Carli's Class".

One question:
How could a 21 year old college soccer player not run for more than 15 minutes?

One statementer:
Carli probably wouldn't agree with your comment Joseph

That's O.K., primate wranger; Carli's entitled to her own opinion.
