Soccer players that care

In a me-first, results-driven world, it was nice to see a couple superstars take time to acknowledge some bigger issues outside the soccer world.

Didier Drogba could've easily shrugged off the Ivory Coast stampede tragedy, but the Chelsea striker said that day still affects him.

In Italy, Roma star Francesco Totti voiced concerns over the victims of a recent earthquake in his home country.

It's not a lot, but in this tabloid era where anything can make headlines, it's nice to see some of the A-list talent making news for the right reasons and using their platform for a good cause.

Telling the truth I do enjoy reading your blog, but don't you think it needs some redesign? Default Blogger themes seem to be boring for such a great resource. I think you should take a look at Free Custom Blogger Themes and pick the right one for your website.
