uswnt goalkeepers - mia hamm

On June 8 however, her versatility was put to the test during the USA’s first round 2-0 victory over Denmark. Goalkeeper Briana Scurry was ejected in the 84th minute for a highly-contested hand-ball infraction outside the US goal box. Since there were no other allowable substitutions to be made (the US had previously used their allotment of three) Mia Hamm was chosen to step into goal.

"I was scared to death," she said as her eyes widened. “I felt like ‘Mia Campos.’ But it’s really a once-in-a-lifetime thing. I hope I don’t have to do it again." Despite her misgivings, Hamm performed admirably, posting a save in the last minute of the match. She was determined not to let anything get by her.

There was also a free-kick that tried her nerves late in the match. “I was so out of position,” she said rolling her eyes, “I was hiding behind the wall. I didn’t know what I was doing. I’m just glad the girl missed the goal!” She now knows how the other half lives.

The experience has given Hamm more respect for goalkeepers. “The goal is so much bigger when you’re inside it than when you’re shooting at it,” Hamm said prophetically. “You’ve got to get inside it to see what it’s like.”

hi thank you for putting the back story i was too lazy to do it haha

Leadership at it’s finest. 

Date someone who is interested in you. I don’t mean someone who thinks you’re cute or funny. I mean someone who wants to know every insignificant detail about you. Someone who wants to read every word you write. Someone who wants hear every note of your favourite song, and watch every scene of your favourite movie. Someone wants to find every scar upon your body, and learn where each one came from. Someone who wants to know your favourite brand of toothpaste, and which quotes resonate deep inside your bones when you hear them. There is a difference between attraction and interest. Find the person who wants to learn every aspect of who you are, and hold onto them.
