1Hey Coach,
I am a girl who loves to skateboard. I love to play all kinds of sports with the guys and I ride a motorcycle. I am not into any girly stuff like make-up, hair or dressing up. Am I really a tomboy?

Hey sk8rgirl_punk,
Most dictionaries define a tomboy as a girl who dresses and acts like a boy, especially when playing physical games that boys usually play. So, you do kinda fit that definition, but that's not a bad thing. The word tomboy was invented more than five hundred years ago when girls weren't supposed to be aggressive, outspoken or ride skateboards. But many things in life are different from five hundred years ago. People shower more than once a month, doctors no longer drill holes in patients' skulls if they have a headache and lots of girls play football and all other sports. So, keep riding skateboards, keep riding your motorcycle, keep playing sports with the guys and leave the word, "tomboy" for those nerds who are still living in the 16th century.

    Pats. The only way they would lose would be due to the deflated balls as an illegitimate way of getting to the Super Bowl. They wouldn't deserve to win in the eyes of some people. Maybe even the NFL. Besides that, the Patriots will take this win.  And lets be honest, nobody wants to see the Seahawks win two years in a row except for the fans that became fans once they saw that they were good. (Yes the shots have been fired.)

The highest I go is about the middle of the pitch :p :p :p So basically you play more of an attacking right midfield? That's interesting.  I'm guessing you play a 4-2-3-1 ? I play RM and LM. I'm a Box to box midifielder though. I rarely go through to the middle and I play wide.
