Hello and we're back with another rendition of thighlights! Over the past couple of days some people lost soccer games and some people won soccer games but everybody worked up a sweat, whether they were watching a game or playing in it.

According to the many people screaming outside my window on Sunday evening, some seriously intense soccer is being played these days. Luckily, once soccer season is over, you won't have to go far for some physically impressive individuals. We have a real bounty right here in the good old US of A.

They're all so nice to each other! (When things go well)

If facing a loss, when in doubt, take your shirt off/hug a teammate.

Say HOLA to the back Fernando Torres of Spain, who had this pic snapped of him when he was in the middle of changing a torn jersey.
