Ricky Williams Personal Life Includes Yoga, Vegetarian, Social Anxiety Disorder and Hindu Faith

Ricky Williams is one of the most interesting players in the National Football League (NFL) because of the fact that he seems to be unique in many ways that are unlike traditional norms and stereotypes about professional football players. Chief amongst the intriguing aspects of the life of Ricky Williams that separates him from most of his teammates are:

1. His interest in yoga – Ricky is a certified yoga instructor

2. His endorsement of a prescription drug to deal with his social anxiety disorder

3. His vegetarian diet

4. His Hindu faith

By normal standards within the general population of Americans anyone of the four items listed above would be enough to place an individual in a small minority of all citizens in the United States. The fact that all four of the unique and in some cases controversial issues listed above apply to one man who happens to be a standout NFL football player who was considered one of the best college football players of all time is particularly odd.

When most people think of professional football players they do not picture serene yoga classes. Ricky Williams is the exception to this rule because he is such a personal advocate of the practice of yoga that he has actually gone as far as to become certified to instruct classes. He has given free yoga classes in Toronto, Canada.

Williams suffers from a form of social anxiety disorder that his therapists have helped him manage. Having a social anxiety disorder is hard for the average person and can be increasing difficult to deal with as a celebrity who is constantly bombarded by strangers and attention. For a brief period Ricky worked with a large pharmaceutical company as a spokesperson of sorts to promote education about the product the company was producing to assist in managing social anxiety issues.

Ricky does not eat the sort of diet that is normally associated with a powerful 230 pound NFL football player. As a professional football player Williams can afford to eat at the finest steak houses but instead chooses to practice a vegetarian diet in which he abstains from eating meat. In addition to his personal diet as a crusade to help animals Ricky has been a face for the PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) organization.

According to a 2001 study.4% of Americans are Hindu. Ricky Williams, an African American, counts himself as one of the 1.1 million US citizens that practice Hinduism. Of the approximately one million practicing Hindi citizens live in the United State the vast majority are of Indian heritage. Williams, a current Florida resident, does not even live in one of the five US states where Hinduism is most prolific. Those states include: Illinois, Texas, New Jersey, New York, and California.

Chelsea Set to Dominate European Football

There is a new heavyweight force in European football, they are being bankrolled seemingly by the Russian economy, they mean business, and their name is Chelsea F.C. Chelsea Football Club have always been a decent club in the second strata of English clubs. In London alone Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have invariably been ahead of the Chelsea Blues, even West Ham have often put Chelsea in the shade. But no longer, for in the season 2004-2005, Chelsea won the English Premier League title for the first time in fifty years, their only previous winning season.

But they haven’t stopped there, in the new season 2005-2006 they are already well clear in the title race leaving all their rivals gasping, and now they have set their sights on the pinnacle of all the club trophys, the European Champions League. Chelsea have never won the Champions League, indeed no London club ever has. And it is clear that their charismatic manager Jose Mourinho is intent on winning the Champions League again, he did so with his previous club Porto, of Portugal.

So what of the traditional English giants? Manchester United, often described as the world’s richest football club, have fallen into the hands of the Glazer family of Tampa Bay fame, but they reportedly needed to borrow half a billion pounds to buy United, a debt the club now shoulders. Spending on new players has so far been thin on the ground and United’s brusque Glaswegian manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, has admitted that United, for so long England’s most successful club, cannot compete with Chelsea when it comes to buying players. The hordes of United fans are not amused, the natives are growing restless.

Arsenal, London’s biggest and most successful club, lost their skipper and driving force Patrick Vieira last summer, he moved to Juventus in Italy for £12 million pounds and with their star striker Thierry Henry suffering fitness problems, they picked up some uncharacteristic defeats at unfashionable clubs like West Bromwich Albion and Middlesbrough. This is their last season at their famous old Highbury Stadium before they move to their new purpose built Emirates stadium almost next door. The increased capacity of 60,000 will undoubtedly give their French manager Arsene Wenger more money to spend next year, but of course they have to pay for that new ground too. Far from challenging Chelsea again, it would seem that Arsenal are more likely to fall further behind.

That leaves Liverpool and Newcastle. News comes through just today that the American Kraft Company and family are interested in investing in Liverpool F.C., perhaps even buying the club outright just like Manchester United fifty miles up the road, but that is some way down the line. And they too are seeking to build a brand new stadium on Stanley Park and of course that all costs big money. Despite last year’s freakish win in the Champion’s League, Liverpool’s league form this season has again been patchy, and that included a 4-1 walloping by Chelsea on their own Anfield pitch. The idea that Liverpool might challenge Chelsea for the title remains a far-fetched one. Newcastle, England’s second best supported club are gradually improving, and they have signed England’s centre forward Michael Owen, but they still remain unconvincing at the top level. They haven’t won the title since Noah was seen building his ark, or so it seems, and they aren’t going to do so this season either.

So though it is very popular for foreign investors to snap up the leading English (and Scottish) football clubs, it appears that only Roman Abramovich at Chelsea has the financial muscle to buy the best players around. He is the only one to put unlimited funds on the table. Top class players now command a transfer fee of £40 million each and whereas Manchester United might afford one of them a season, Chelsea’s purse seems bottomless. They have already spent £220+ million and are still in the market to buy again when the transfer window re-opens in January.

They have already achieved success by winning at home, now the European Champion’s League is the Holy Grail for them, a trophy they are now the outright favourites to win with the odds layers. And astonishingly they have achieved their success to date with an array of strikers who haven’t really cut the mustard. Mutu the Romanian, was promptly sacked for drug taking, Crespo the Argentinian, was sent out to Milan on loan last season, and though he is back now he is hardly setting the world afire,or even playing that often, Gudjohnson an Icelander, plays more often than not, the muscular Drogba from the Ivory Coast, seems to have finally claimed the number nine shirt as his own, yet many blues followers still remain unconvinced about him, so it would seem likely that Chelsea may yet be looking for another proven goal scorer come January, especially after a recent rare defeat at Manchester United.

It would take a brave man to back against Chelsea in any competition at the moment. But if you’d like to, you can still have a free $30 dollar bet at Betfair.com by entering the code 6CHE3VPWJ when prompted. But one thing is for sure; no one would be surprised if this time next year the Premier League trophy AND the Champions League trophy were both on display in the Chelsea boardroom. It seems that only the Italian giants Milan and Juventus, and the Spanish top two, Real Madrid, and most especially Barcelona with their Brazilian superstar, surely soon to be the world player of the year, Ronaldinho, might stop the London blues. It really does seem as if we have entered a new era in European and world football, or if you prefer the ridiculous name that no one ever uses, Soccer. Chelsea fans have never had it so good while everyone else is left gasping in their wake, for it is a fact that Chelsea Football Club have raised the bar for everyone else to follow. Time will tell if anyone can.

Losing More Weight Faster With Low Carb Diet Food

Just as the name suggests, a low carb diet includes foods that are low in carbohydrates and naturally high in proteins. There are plenty of options available when deciding to eat a low carb diet.

The greatest advantage of eating these foods is that you will find yourself losing weight in a short amount of time. By reducing or eliminating the carbohydrates you consume you will begin to shed extra pounds without sacrificing taste and satisfaction in the foods you eat.

Plan Your Meals Ahead

Start by planning your food selections ahead of time in order to keep variety in your diet, and to avoid eating the same foods repeatedly. For most dieters, the main objective is weight loss, which is the reason for consuming diet food low in carbohydrates. Additionally, some people who have been diagnosed with hyperinsulinemia will do well on this diet. These foods help regulate blood pressure, stabilize high triglycerides and have been found to help people suffering from certain anxiety disorders.

Some people with digestive problems or others who are trapped in binge eating patterns will benefit from a low carb diet which can offer a solution to all of these maladies. They aim to reduce or eliminate white flour and sugar, both culprits in so many eating and digestive problems.

Some fruits, although not all, are excluded when doing these diets. Certain dieters need just 25 grams of carbs every day, while others require even less. Usually, low carb diets include seafood, eggs, meat, some cheeses, some fat, most fruits and low starch vegetables.

Saltwater Fishing Reels

Saltwater fishing conjures up the image of a vast sea with a large fish dancing across the waters surface. This is not far from reality when you think more generally terms of large fish and corrosive conditions. These are the two main reasons why a good saltwater fishing reel is so important to your fishing arsenal.

While a saltwater reel may look much like any other reel, the fact is that the these fishing reels are constructed for saltwater fishing conditions and are designed to stand up to the elements that a fisherman encounters. They are also made to with stand the rigors of heavier fish.

Consider first the type of fishing you will be doing. Shore fishing and open water fishing are two of the distinct types of saltwater fishing anglers can enjoy. Each type requires a different type of reel.

If open water fishing is for you, then you will be searching for a reel that has durable construction and is more on the heavy-duty end for bigger fish and deeper depths. Baitcasting type of reels are the most commonly used saltwater fishing reels, as these saltwater types of reels are made to handle heavy line weights associated with open water fishing. Also you will find the drag systems accommodate a variety of resistance automatically.

Shore fishing on the other hand will most likely be scaled back when it comes to the depth of the water and the fish size. Here a spinning reel, similar to those used when bass fishing, will do the job. The saltwater spinning reels offers better resistance to corrosion, as it is normally made from stainless steel. Always keep corrosion in mind when thinking of reel selection or reel maintenance.

The life expectancy of your saltwater fishing reel depends squarely on your care. Cleaning is crucial when you own saltwater reels. Always hose down your saltwater equipment after every outing. This will help your expensive fishing reel last longer.

Roma’s Impossible Mission

Looking at the facts of what has gone on this season; no Italian side has managed to score away from home against any of their English counterparts with AC Milan, Inter Milan, Roma and Fiorentina failing to score at Arsenal, Liverpool, United and Everton respectfully this season.

Those particular facts may not be relevant in this case but a more relevant observation is that Roma seem to have an inferiority complex in general and to United to be specific.

In the league match this season in Rome, United put out a virtual 2nd side as they had qualified with so many players that we had not previously heard of whilst Roma had most of their big guns out and they still could only draw 1-1 with United taking the lead.

Roma also are here without Francesco Totti and that suggests that they do not truly believe they have any chance of going through as they might have risked him if they thought there was a chance.

Putting all that aside, the main reason I do not give them and chance is that they are not just not good enough to go to Old Trafford and bettering United’s 2-0 win in Rome.

First of all they do not have Gigi Buffon or Petr Cech in goal that would give you confidence in not conceding, they have Alex Doni and he is not just good enough. They do not have strikers that take their chances went presented like David Trezeguet, Didier Drogba, Ruud Van Nistlerooy etc and the midfield is not steely enough to stop United if they feel the need to attack and score.

Like Arsenal, Roma are a joy to watch but also like Arsenal they concede too many avoidable goals and do not always make the most of the chances they create. I would dearly like for them to prove me wrong but unfortunately I do not think so as it would be a Manchester United vs Barcelona semi final as Schalke would not have the belief that they can win at the Nou Camp, no matter how much Frank Rijkaard helps them out with his tactical decisions tonight.

His full name is Oliver Rolf Kahn. He was born June 15, 1969 in Karlsruhe, Germany. He was a German soccer player and played the position of the goalkeeper for Bayern Munich.

Kahn begun his career at Karlsruher SC and in 1994 was transferred to Bayern Munich, his last professional club. He’s a modern goalkeeper, that manages his defenders splendidly and he also has the power of character to make himself heard and esteemed by his teammates, which is a surprising achievement considering he’s playing together with world class superstars at Bayern Munich and the German national team.

He is one of the most triumphant and famous soccer players of German in latest history, having won eight German championships, six German cups, the UEFA Cup in 1996, the UEFA Champions League and the Intercontinental Cup, both in 2001.

Chijioke Ejiogu: Complete Profile of Arugo Monkey

Goalkeeper Chijioke Ejiogu is the number one goal tender for Double CAF Champions league winners- Enyimba Football club of Aba. He is one of the most consistent goalkeepers in the Nigeria Premier league. His dexterity between the goalpost while playing for amateur side- Arugo F.C in the late 1990’s during the F.A Cup Competition have earned him the nickname- Arugo Monkey.

Monkeys are one of the most acrobatic animals in the jungle, and they have the ability to jump from one tree to the other with so much ease and skill. These were the exact qualities that Chijioke Ejiogu displayed during the F.A Cup competition more than 15 years ago while starring for Arugo F.C.

He was quickly snapped up by Julius Berger F.C of Lagos immediately after his F.A Cup heroics, and helped the Bridge Boys to the final of the CAF Confederation Cup. His agility behind the post was soon noticed by the management of Enyimba F.C and he soon put pen to paper for the peoples Elephant in the 2008-2009 season.

The confidence he displays in organizing his defence line is quite amazing, considering the fact that football has become so competitive and tactical. One of the qualities that distinguish a good goalkeeper from a bad one is the ability to anticipate and deal with aerial balls and this is one of the strong points of Chijioke Ejiogu.

He has been invited to the national senior team on several occasions during the reign of Coach Christian Chukwu as Chief Coach of the Super Eagles, but on each occasion, luck has not been on his side. The desire to excel in the local league to enhance future call-ups has always been his main motivation, and this has seen him emerging as one of the stars in the star-studded Enyimba Football club.

Arugo Monkey has become a veteran of sort in the Nigeria Premier league and with each passing season, he has shown more maturity and better composure between the posts to the admiration of his fans all over the country. His acrobatic saves and daring maneuvers in front of strikers have earned him a place among the best Local league players.

It is hoped that the coming years will witness a change in the fortune of this charismatic goalkeeper who has paid his dues in the Nigeria Premier league in the past 10 years. His chances of putting on the green white green colors of the Super Eagles have been made a lot easier with the appointment of an indigenous Coach for National senior team in the person of Coach Samson Siasia in December 2010.

Why Players Prefer Football in Italy and Spain – Not in England

The exodus of so many great players from the English Premier League does force one to believe that perhaps it is not as appealing to world football stars as the football leagues of Spain and Italy. Despite the fact that it offers so much financial benefits and world-wide viewing as compared to other leagues, we have observed that more foreign stars have been found leaving the Premier League than joining. And whats more interesting is the fact that most of these players either opt for the football leagues in Italy, or Spain.

Here I look at some of the reasons why Premier League has been hit by the exodus of players like Ronaldo, Henry, van Nistelrooy and many others to the football clubs of Spain and Italy!

First of all, the style of football played in these two countries differs from that of the English. They provide players with much more time on the ball and matches and therefore feature more skillful moments.

Another reason for the preference given to Italy and Spain would be the fact that the foreign players are more comfortable in a Mediterranean climate than an English one.

Perhaps the players who are recognized worldwide do not like the media attention they get from playing in English League. Most of the foreign players, especially the ones from Argentina and Brazil, are from humble backgrounds and the media attention really bothers them. Such media attention is not a problem in other leagues as they don’t have much viewership but provide even a tougher atmosphere to hone your skills.

If you make a mistake in English Premier League, you will have to bear the media bombardment for at least a whole week. And that can really get to your nerves. People will always be babbling about the style of your game, or the lack of it.

The only thing perhaps that may bring in more foreign stars to the English Premier League is money. And believe me there is no dearth of it In the English Premier League. However, not everyone plays for money. And there are things even money cannot buy!
