We Tried It: Training Like a Professional Women's Soccer Player

What It Is: Training with the Sky Blue Football Club, one of the ten professional women’s soccer teams in the National Women’s Soccer League

Who Tried It: Briana Draguca, Style and Beauty Intern

Level of Difficulty: 7/10. It’s not every day that a regular person gets to work out like a pro athlete. My muscle memory definitely needed some refreshing (I totally forgot how to strike a soccer ball). Luckily, the players took it easy on me.

I played soccer in high school, so professional women’s soccer has always been something I hold close to my heart.

Another D23, a massive Disney fan event, is now behind us. Over the weekend, the Anaheim convention centre was transformed into the ultimate Disney fan HQ with autograph signings by stars, fan photo ops, and all kinds of exclusive merch. It also turns into the hub of entertainment news, with 3 days of big, star-filled panels. While that was happening, I was busy covering the red carpet behind the stage, talking with all the filmmakers and stars, while a crowd of thousands of fans erupted at the big announcements being made on the other side of the wall. I did run into a few Canadian fans on the convention floor over the weekend, but in case you weren’t there,

© BPI/Michael Zemanek/BPI/Corbis

Joe Cole is set to make his loan move from Aston Villa to Coventry City permanent by the end of the week, The Independent reports.

The midfielder has been on loan at the Ricoh Arena since October, but is keen to make the move from the Barclays Premier League to League One a full-time one.

Coventry manager Tony Mowbray has confirmed that Cole will need to take a pay cut if he wants the deal to happen, he said:

“I think the player will help us but there’s a number of discussions to be had, not just with our football club and the clubs concerned.

“There’s no way we could pay similar sorts of salary levels so they’ll have discussions with their parent clubs and after that, we need to have discussions with their advisors. So there’s lots of stuff to be talked about.

Super Bowl: How Bob Dylan Jumped From Counterculture Icon to Car Salesman

Super Bowl: How Bob Dylan Jumped From Counterculture Icon to Car Salesman
Bob Dylan has moved from “Positively 4th Street” to absolutely Madison Avenue.

By appearing in a longer-than-usual commercial for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles during the Super Bowl Sunday night – and allowing the use of his wordy 1966 single “I Want You” in a separate spot for Chobani yogurt – has cemented an idea that few would have ascribed to him when he first came to prominence in the 1960s: He’s for sale.

“You can’t import the heart and soul of every man and woman working on the line.” Dylan said Sunday night in the latest of a series of Chrysler Super Bowl ads meant to spark pride in America and the cars it makes. “Let Asia assemble your phone…We will build your car.”

Dylan’s likeness and music have appeared in advertising several times in the recent past – he most notably allowed Pepsi to do a mash-up of his “Forever Young

Preacher: 10 Scenes That Must Appear In TV Series

Early last month news broke that AMC – the guys behind hit shows Walking Dead and Breaking Bad – had ordered a pilot to be made of all time cult classic comic book series Preacher to fill the gargantuan void left by Walter White and his Sky Blue meth.

Despite being as excited as a new puppy in a bubble factory, none of us was willing to invest too much in the announcement after several failed attempts to bring the Garth Ennis/Steve Dillon comic opus to life numerous times in the last decade despite being tied to big names like Kevin Smith, HBO and Sam Mendes. The latest attempt however came from way out in the left field when lardy comic Seth Rogen; better known for his laugh out loud stoner roles – laid claim to his involvement via his Twitter account.

Man City Transfers: 5 Centre-Backs Citizens Need To Bolster Defence

Media Image Ltd

Last night we witnessed the full attacking prowess at Manchester City’s disposal as last season’s Premier League runners-up ruthlessly dismantled a 10-man Newcastle team at the Etihad.

It was the Citizen’s familiar faces who did all the damage as David Silva, Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and Samir Nasri got their names on the scoresheet, and that’s not taking into account the exciting new talent at manager Manuel Pellegrini’s beck and call.

Jesus Navas started on the wing, striker Alvaro Negredo came on as a second half substitute while forward Stevan Jovetic, who scored thirteen league goals last season, wasn’t even on the bench.

The Sky Blue’s attacking might is frightening, and so it should be considering the £90 million outlay it took to assemble.

With arguably one of the best attacks in the division though, are there are any chinks in City’s armour?

Man City Transfer News: Shakhtar’s Fernandinho To Complete £30 Million Move

According to The Guardian, Manchester City are close to completing a £30 million transfer for Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder, Fernandinho

The 28-year-old was seen arriving at a private Manchester hospital for his City medical on Wednesday morning, indicating a deal was imminent.

The Brazilian’s buyout clause, which is £42.5 million, has not been activated due to Manchester City and the Ukrainian team having agreed a deal believed to worth around £30 million for his services.

Fernandinho will be The Citizen’s second transfer of the summer after completing the signing of Sevilla winger Jesus Navas for a fee of around £24 million earlier this week. Once Fernandinho is confirmed as a Sky Blue player, City’s transfer spend will be up to £54 million and we are only a few days into June.

Shakhtar’s number 7 has achieved everything he can in the Ukrainian league having lifted the title in the last four consecutive seasons,

Man Utd vs Man City – Blues Will Win, Says Mario Balotelli

Former Manchester City star Mario Balotelli is convinced his former side will emerge victorious from tonight’s top-of-the-table Manchester derby.

The enigmatic Italian, who swapped the Sky Blue of City for the Red and Black of AC Milan in January, hopes his former employers can find a way to win tonight’s encounter at Old Trafford.

And he admitted he would be tuning in tonight to watch the Premier League clash.

“I am sure Roberto Mancini will find the right way to win the derby. I really hope City win.

“I am sure me and Nigel (de Jong) will watch the game – perhaps not together – but we will both supporting our ex-teammates, the boss and the supporters big time: we want a win.”

In last season’s reverse fixture, Balotelli produced one of the most iconic moments of the season by scoring against the Red Devils in a 6-1 rout

Man City Transfer News: David Villa Set To Sign

Talksport have sensationally announced on their website that Manchester City are planning an audacious bid to land Barcelona star striker David Villa before the end of the transfer window. Having been relatively quiet in the transfer window so far – much to Roberto Mancini’s chagrin – and having missed out on Arsenal star Robin Van Persie, the Premier League winners could now pull off “the biggest deal of the window” according to the Talksport website.

That report says that City will follow up their 2008 deadline-beating sensational swoop for Robinho with a big money move for Villa, who was out for most of last season after breaking his leg during the Club World Cup competition in a match against Al Sadd.

According to Talksport, Barcelona would be reluctant to sell Villa, who is still considered one of the best strikers in Europe, but they could be swayed by a bid of between

Good morning, Brewbies! Trish Bendix is on a much-deserved vacation so I'll be Brew-ing it up for you this week.

Music: Music Review: Wilco: The Whole Love

It’s a little too easy to correlate the relaxed, familiar sound of Wilco’s recent work and the present state of the group, which is as settled as it’s ever been. But after presenting itself as a different band—figuratively and literally—on every album it put out in the ’90s and early ’00s, Wilco has nested on its last three records. For lack of a better term, 2007’s Sky Blue Sky and ’09’s Wilco (The Album) were very Wilco-sounding—and there used to not be such a thing, perhaps because Jeff Tweedy couldn’t keep ...
