Football Shirt: Showing Loyalty in style by

Sporting football shirts bearing the legend of one’s favorite football club is not just a means of revealing one’s allegiance. It is also a subtle statement of cool and chic. And market savvy football clubs have been, predictably, quick to cash in on the current football shirt culture fad. Clubs, more specifically club names, have become ace branding agents. Small wonder that most retro shirts cost nothing less than USD 51 or 35. And there is a mad rush for them.
Things were not always so. In the good old day of modern football in England football gear was pretty conventional. Believe it or not, but players would be seen in shirt, suit, and tie! And some would appear in home-knitted caps. Some footballers, with a wry sense of humor obviously, would concede to wearuing a rosette on their chests.
Even as the game continued to gain popularity there was little fans could do by way of showing off their team allegiance. When footballers started earning their stripes they began to settle for colors, but in heavy cotton wear. Today’s players wear polyester, nylon or light cotton with jazzy designs and colors. Which makes it so much easier on their fans who lustily cheer them in sweltering hot weather sometimes.
Businesses have been quick to jump on to the football shirt bandwagon taking advantage of the culture of teams brands. Let it be said, though, that most football fans frown upon the idea of having to sport corporate logos while demonstrating affiliation to their favorite teams.
As we said earlier, football shirts also make a great fashion statement. The England football shirts, for instance, are the current rage amongst fans. They are dignified, regal, and easy on the eye. Take the Arsenal away shirt for instance. At 49.99 this genial ochre chemise with a round collar and red stripes on each sleeve looks rather becoming. The cheery red 2008-09 Arsenal home shirt (Adebayor 25) too, looks rather fetching as well and comes in all sizes. Good for Arsenal affiliates, surely, as it reminds them of the great Premier League and First Division wins and titles.
Or, if you are a Togo fan, you might simply dig this lemon and lime shirt with seaweed green piping on the collar and a similar color highlighting the ripe golden in a happy contrast. To be featured in the 2010 World Cup during the qualifying campaign this is surely a home shirt â€To Go’ with Togo.
Manufactured by Puma (the Arsenal shirts have been manufactured by Nike) the Togo away football shirts look just as cool and dignified in beige green with logos manifested just below the shoulders and neck. This gorgeous brand is available at a rather cool price- 44.99.
And, of course, how can anyone miss out on the England World Cup shirts, particularly away shirts? The short-sleeved 2010-11 England away football shirt looks dazzling in ruby red. The sleeves are subtly highlighted in slim white piping.
All these England football shirts are available in great hues and all sizes. Time for a trial, what say?

The Need For Friendship And Community by Jane Straus

As a life coach for over 20 years, I have noticed that my clients are looking for more than insights or pearls of wisdom; they want a guarantee that they can trust that they will not have to vie for someone's attention, that they will be heard and cared about, and that they will be listened well to, without interruption and without feeling rushed.

Most of us don't consider ourselves isolated or friendless. Yet, almost 25% of Americans say they don't have even one close friend they confide in. What this tells me is that we may no longer expect friends to take the time to listen or to have the skills to help us reflect on our circumstances. In other words, intimacy, while valued highly as suggested by the price people are willing to pay for it professionally, is no longer a criterion we gauge our friendships by.

This puts more pressure on mates, who are as ill prepared and time crunched as everyone else. Many of my clients fight with their significant others more about communication or lack of it than about sex, money, or children. They have a hard time resolving day-to-day issues because they can't find the time to talk to each other or don't feel listened to, resulting in escalating arguments rather than solutions.

Couples sometimes schedule with me as a way of carving out uninterrupted time to talk or to have a mediator who will keep them from hurting each other's feelings. My work is about supporting a receptive environment where they can each listen better and can practice communicating sensitively. This takes practicelots of practicewhich we are increasingly deprived of in our culture.

It isn't just technology that is at cause; it is the dwindling social skills as a result of technology that hinder intimacy and friendships. It takes more than just time to be a good listener; it takes skill. One has to learn to focus one's attention on someone else to discern and help with underlying feelings that might be too painful or embarrassing to reveal immediately. This can't be done via text messaging or email. It is tricky enough to do on the phone when we can't see someone's face. Without practice or the expectation from one another that we provide this, we lose both the ability and the commitment to provide the glue that binds us as something more than acquaintances.

How does technology affect our friendships and even our ability to know how to be a good friend? In the 1970's my husband was on the baseball team at Stanford and when the team traveled to another university for a game, the guys spent their time on the bus talking together. About what? He doesn't remember. But there was nothing else to do. Without ipods and laptops, these guys were forced to use each other to pass the time and build the camaraderie that cemented friendships he has to this day.
He went back for a Stanford reunion last year and saw something that alarmed him: When the football team got off the bus, they weren't talking or laughing; they were all plugged into ipods. None of them seemed connected with each other. He imagined they spent the entire duration of the trip alone in their own world of music rather than goofing around, strategizing, learning more about each other, in other words, creating bonds that would last beyond their time as college athletes. He felt saddened for them. How would kids from the suburbs and those from blighted urban areas bridge the gap among themselves if they didn't find more common ground than what was underneath their feet during a game?

If what used to be a natural alignment such as teammates can be broken by a pocket-sized white rectangle that isolates us in a bubble, how are we to reach out or be reached out to? Even taking the bus to work used to involve seeing the same people every day, affording us an opportunity to reach out to our neighbors and develop connections. Today, on a typical bus ride during commute hours, more than likely we will be on our cell phone or plunking at our laptop keyboard, using the bus as our mobile office. We're working longer and harder and the price we pay is increased isolation.

With online chat rooms and dating services, text messaging, and email, we can exclude the wrong people" and avoid wasting time." But how many of us who are happy in a relationship would have picked our mates out of a line up? Did we really end up using the criteria we had in our minds or on paper? Does our partner really look or always behave like our wish list? Who are we overlooking by not taking the time to have a cup of coffee but instead choosing to not wink" back at?

What can we do about this trend? And do we want to do it? Is it simply more efficient to pay for therapy or coaching? The problem with relying solely on professional friendship" is who is going to pick up your child from school because your boss wants you to stay late or the car breaks down? And unfortunately, you might be afraid to bother even those you consider friends if you haven't taken the time to nurture these relationships. Needing something in an emergency becomes an embarrassment instead of part of the pact of friendship.

But even beyond emergencies, we owe it to ourselves to have at least one or two people who are available to us without having to whip out our appointment calendars. It takes conscious effort these days. We live in suburbs where we may not be in walking distance to that special friend. We have jobs and chores and families that demand so much of our time and focus. But we need friendship perhaps today more than ever.

Friendship, community, and intimacy require changing our routine, unplugging from the TV and computer, picking up the phone instead of emailing, having meals together regularly, even doing errands together. Most of all, we need to slow down long enough to listen. We will make these efforts when we remember that a true friend is both an investment and a treasure.
