What Is Your New Year’s Resolution?

What is your New Year’s resolution?

Mine is likely the same as Premier League referee Alan Wiley.  To hit the gym or at least the treadmill every day.  But it seems to me that this resolution is too popular for just about everyone here in America in January. 

And sure it makes perfect sense here in the states where we are renowned as the most obese nation in the world.  Where McDonald’s outweighs GNC stores tenfold and ice cream trucks cruise down nearly every neighborhood street giving some joggers something to run after.  Plus we just got finished shoving turkey, ham, stuffing, mashed potatoes with gravy, pumpkin pie, alongside X-mas cookies, and anything else we can get our hands on down our throats.

But what about other New Year’s resolutions that do not focus on our favorite seven deadly sins?  Here is a list of some of the potential New Year’s Resolutions of soccer icons both American and global.

Landon Donovan

Donovan’s New Year’s resolution is to improve his penalty kicks.  Or else people leaving matches early should look out for falling objects from the sky.

Florentino Perez

Real Madrid owner Florentino Perez New Year’s resolution is to spend less money on shopping splurges next year.  But Perez will likely break this goal before the end of January though.

Alex Ferguson

Sir Alex would like his fourth straight Premiership title, but maybe the old legendary coach should try to zip it instead?

David Beckham

The Becks wants a spot on the World Cup roster for England.  All ready got it?  Well how about a big shiny Cup?  Asking for too much?  Thought so. 

Alexi Lalas

Alexi’s New Year’s resolution is to grow the goat back.  Last time the U.S. did well in the Cup Alexi’s goat was prominent.  Enough said.
