is renaldo is a terrible sprinter?
can he do 13 moves 8 seconds?
or how about heading a corner with no vision???
or curving a ball 3 meters?

remember those "scientists" of yesteryear that said that in baseball the curve was an optical illusion....

i remember coming from soccer - had that short stride with flailing arms - which heightens agility with the soccer ball. it takes a while to get used to the robot straight ahead motion.

I came to soccer from track and my coach thought I ran 'funny' because my arms went straight up and down and my knees came up so high. I didn't have a great change-of-direction, but man could I fly on break-aways! :D
