It's no secret that when any international football (soccer) tournament begins, there's never really been a huge level of support surrounding the England national team and the 2018 FIFA World Cup was no different. When the tournament began, and even in the months leading up to the competition; skepticism was, as usual, at it's highest among the English people, both on home soil and abroad. England have notoriously not done well in international competitions for as long as I can remember and while I am by no means an expert in the rules of The Beautiful Game, when has that ever stopped anyone from having an opinion on something they don't fully understand? While I have never really followed a football competition all the way through; this time, I couldn't helped but get sucked in...

Dear athletes and coaches, My name Justin Zoet a former football and basketball player, and am now coaching both football and basketball. I am writing this in an effort to help better the relationship between a coach and the athletes he/she is coaching, and for athletes to know what to expect from a coach and how to further support coaching tactics. I played football and basketball for 10 years of my life and grew up surrounded by coaches as my father, uncle, and grandfather were all coaches. They taught me how to develop a positive relationship between players and coaches. It is very important to the success of a team to have a great player-coach relationship with mutual respect going each way. First, to develop a positive relationship as a player with your coach you should...

I like you had a very successful season winning the sec championship winning the national semifinal game in overtime against Oklahoma but, you came up short by one play by Alabama a winning touchdown play in overtime that gave Alabama the national championship .the defense came up very short in overtime to give Alabama the victory overhaul it was a good run this year. I hope this is a start of something positive in the football program as far as competing in the sec title as well the national title. I like to say to Kirby Smart you...

This is an open letter, one extending my humblest apologies to University of Missouri head coach Barry Odom. I apologize for not fully believing in you after your passionate speech following the home loss to Auburn. You believed that you were going to turn things around and start winning with this staff and this roster. Fact of the matter is, getting this program back on track was a bigger task than most of us bought into. There was a lot of talent and experience that was lost from the back-to-back SEC East Championship teams. The last two recruiting classes under Coach Gary Pinkel (2014, 2015) have been underwhelming. These two classes combined featured only two recruits from Texas, both of whom were rated 2-star recruits. A pipeline that produced so many productive players for the...

Dear those who don’t know, 18∙Nov∙2017 I am a figure skater through and through, down to the bone. It hurts me and my fellow skaters to see you all with your noses in the air saying that figure skating isn’t a real sport. Isn’t hard. Isn’t painful. Doesn’t require money or time or effort. Is for little girls. Is to be used as a hobby. Should be used for birthday parties and dates and big group get togethers. Now you will know. Now you will understand how mush skating takes out of you. And what the costs are: money, time, effort, and body. Skating is one of the most expensive and dangerous sports of all time for a reason. It’s one of the ones where you damage your joints, bruises and abrasions...

An open letter to Bryan Bickell: Mr. Bickell, I do not know if this letter will ever make it to you and that is okay. For this letter will serve as a reminder to all that do read it that uncontrollable illness and hardship is not the fault of anyone, especially not the person suffering. Hearing about your story during this past season was truly moving. To see a man that did so much for the Chicago Blackhawks and continuously brought joy to the lives of all who watched him play have to give up the game because of something uncontrollable was heartbreaking. However the most moving and unbearable moment of this whole situation came during your recognition at the NHL Expansion draft. I could not help but to hear you apologize to the audience and viewers. Hearing this flooded my mind...

If could reach Nicky Hayden or his family right now, I’d like to tell them a small story about 16-year-old me. When I was 15 I knew nothing about Moto GP or Nicky Hayden. I was an annoying teenager trying to pass maths and look prettier. Then I was diagnosed with stage IV Hodgkin Lymphoma. The cancer had also eaten part of my D5 disk in such a way that the smallest pressure could break it completely and leave me in a wheelchair for life. We all know how devastating cancer is, we all know a story or two, and this one is obviously a happy one for I am writing this letter in perfect health. As I said I knew nothing about motorbikes, I still don’t, but I had to spend an awful lot of time in bed because of my disk so I came across the start of the Moto GP Championship. They were...

Dear Wayne, I am writing this letter really just to say a massive thank you for being an amazing servant to my football club and country over a number of years and to highlight my huge connection to your journey with us and let you know how much what you have done has meant to me. To set the scene I was born into an avid Manchester United supporting family and if I was going to be interested in football there was no way I’d support anybody else. I’m told I “waved a flag” at the age of 2 during the 1999 thrilling Champions League final, though I can’t quite remember it unfortunately, but in 2004 aged 7 I began to be interested in football. After seeing United lift the 2003/4 FA Cup I was hooked and I suddenly became aware of football and started learning about it. That was the year...
