It would be the first time the world's biggest sporting event would be held outside of the United States. In previous years, the NFL has held preseason games in Mexico, Canada, Europe and Asia. A 2005 regular season game between the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers drew a record 103,467 fans.

Sports News - Kobe Out of LA?

Has Kobe Bryant played his last game as a Laker? It appears so, as rumors that Bryant has already cleaned out his locker have surfaced. In the past week, owner Jerry Buss has also suggested that the Lakers are open to shopping their franchise player. During the summer, Bryant made it no secret that he wanted out of Los Angeles when he voiced a few attacks on his team in the media. Among the teams on Bryant's wish list are the Dallas Mavericks, New York Knicks and Chicago Bulls.

    Cheer-leading is a sport it is not just for girls it basically gymnastics but in routines its a great way to feel better about yourself and you can learn all sorts of skills there but my tip is if you want to start cheer go to gymnastics first so you can get a bit of flexibility and work from there and if you want to do more advance things like tumbles then practice and being self taught is not a disadvantage its a bonus cheer is nothing like the movies (in some parts yes but not in the drama part its more like fitness than showing off it keeps you in good state in mind agility and visually try it ad see how you feel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) byeeeeeeeeeeeee
