Arsenal vs Manchester United, Sept. 30, 2000. Thierry Henry received the ball with his back turned to goal and he flicks it up and volleys it to the back post upper 90.
I have always dreamed about representing my country whether it be for the United States or for Tibet. Right now my primary focus is UWM soccer, but after college I would like to try out for the Tibetan national team.
The best player I have played against would be (Columbus Crew midfielder) Danny Szetela. My Yahara team played his U-16 U.S. national team at the Dallas Cup. At his age he had great skill, touch and strength on the ball.
Our biggest rivals are UW-Madison and Marquette. Because my teammates and I know a lot of the players on both of these teams and of how close our universities are together, it makes for good competition. This year we'll be in Madison and Marquette will be at Engelmann and I expect two hard-fought games.
I have been blessed to have many great experiences as a soccer player, but my most memorable one happened just last year. My UWM team was playing Butler in the Horizon League quarterfinals and I scored the game-winning header off of a cross from Dale Weiler. A lot of hard work went into preparing for that game and I was happy that it paid off.
It was a great opportunity to learn more about my Tibetan culture and history. The film was shot in Morocco and I had a great time exploring the country. The experience also brought me closer to my father and we have a strong bond because of it. My most memorable moment would be during the first night of shooting one of my scenes, Scorsese was constantly yelling at me to get my lines right. He'd say "C'mon kid, I need more anger and emotion!" He's probably never had to ask that from his actors before.
We have a great group of talented players and I expect us to win the Midwest Division and then win the national championship. Personally, I just hope to contribute my best performance day in and day out.
Quick, tricky, hard-working and relentless.
I have met him a few times when I was really young and I don't remember too much. My father has a good relationship with him because he was his Tibetan-to-English translator during the '60s and '70s. When I was born he took me to the Dalai Lama to be given a name. He gave me his first name, Tenzin. Today, I believe the Dalai Lama to be a very pure, kind and compassionate person.
Brazil will most likely win again, but I hope the U.S. do very well. I am also a big South Korea fan and hope they do well also.
