    I don't see Freddy Adu on that list. [​IMG]

    Leo Messi of Barcelona and Argentina should be on any best world 11 team. I'd ditch Steven Gerrard as well.

    As good as Messi might be I'm not a huge fan and he is a midget. I have Gerrard in my team because he brings stability, leadership and his unique wide range of passing skills.If not Gerrard then it's Rafael Van Der Vaart (Holland) for me.

    Oops! :) I misposted a baseball post here in the soccer section. It's a post on the team that did the best job of resisting politically-correct multiracialism: the 1958 Boston Red Sox. I moved my mispost over to baseball here: http://www.castefootball.us/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=7420&g et=last#95398

    But my goof on the misposting prompts the thought that the true enjoyment of sports is a community activity shared by a people with a community of racial interests to share...infinitely more than it is a contest of tape measures and stop watches.

    The truth of that communal folk reality of the true value of sports and sportsmanship means that I'd MUCH rather watch a soccer game played by the White 1958 Boston Red Sox, since they are kith and kin of my people, than any team drawn from foreign races.

    That's why cheering on a Little League baseball (or comparable soccer) game played by totally average kids from one's own people is always a more rewarding experience than sitting through even "world champion" technical feats by alien races.Edited by: Jamie Kelso

    Thanks for noticing my goof, nhl411. I moved my post on the 1958 Boston Red Sox to a baseball thread.
