Someone is having a sad. And that someone is Cristiano Ronaldo. It makes sense - Portugal lost to Spain on penalties on Wednesday afternoon and was eliminated from Euro 2012. If you’re a Spain fan, it means your team is now in the final and must wait for the winner of Italy vs. Germany to find out the next team.
Sad Cristiano… I bet the Ukrainian men are celebrating hard tonight!
Early Bird Special: Lionel Messi never dives.
This is why watching great football players is amazing and it’s not always about the scoreboard. Then again, he’s also a super star because of goals like this.
In his 18 years at Pinckney Community High School, Jim Darga, the principal, said, the homecoming queen had always been crowned at halftime of the school’s football game. Never before, though, had she had to be summoned from the team’s locker room.
And that was just the beginning of Brianna Amat’s big night.
If being named homecoming queen is a lifetime memory for a high school student, so, too, is kicking a winning field goal. For Amat, 18, they happened within an hour of each other.
On Friday, with Pinckney leading powerful Michigan rival Grand Blanc, 6-0, at the half, Amat, the first girl to play football for the school’s varsity, was asked to return to the field. When she arrived, she was told that her fellow students had voted her queen. When the tiara was placed on her head, she was wearing not a dress, like the other girls in the homecoming court, but her No. 12 uniform, pads and all.
A short while later, with five minutes to play in the third quarter, Amat was called to the same field to attempt a 31-yard field goal. She split the uprights.
The kick proved decisive as Pinckney held on for a 9-7 victory against a Grand Blanc team that had come into the game ranked seventh in the state in its division. It also earned Amat the nickname the Kicking Queen.
