Say It Ain't So Adrian

I have always thought that when life gives you a second chance you should seize it.

Think about Ebeneezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carol who gets the chance to see how little the world would mourn his passing.

You would cherish every day after that experience, wouldn’t you?

And, more importantly, you would surely never make the same mistakes again.

It struck me that the same was true for Fiorentina’s errant striker Adrian Mutu, a man who has known his share of sporting turmoil – some of it self-inflicted.

He was banned from the game for taking cocaine but he served his time and looked to be completely rehabilitated.

Indeed, it seemed there was a renewed zest in his approach to enjoy the sport which had been denied him for some time.

Just one text message changed all that. “Have you seen your man Mutu has tested positive again?” it said.

I hoped the information would prove incorrect but confirmation soon followed with a news story outlining the outcome of checks following the recent Fiorentina match with Bari.

The Romanian had indeed tested positive for sibutramine, an appetite suppressant, and could face a four-year ban.

It is news which has left Fiorentina fans reeling.

The best case scenario is that there turns out to be some fault with the tests and he is cleared of any offence. But the worst case could effectively end his career.

If he did take a banned substance, it smacks of sheer stupidity given the price he already had to pay for a previous infringement.

He will have let himself, his club and his supporters down and thrown away a second chance which some people are not lucky enough to get.

This is a very intriguing topic you received going on right here.
Today is your lucky day cos I am living proof that it truly is completely attainable to meet your future really
like on a networking or social media marketing internet site.

I met my now Wife on a social websites internet site (Not FB) but similar.
I't was pure coincidence since I was not on that web site to locate love in the 1st spot.
Basically I identified some in the things she wrote about herself extremely intriguing and intriguing thus wanted to understand more. I commented on her bio no motive in mind than to know more about her hobby (studying people) which coincidentally is one from the things I prefer to do in my own cost-free time . We did a lot of inboxing' back and forth for over three months
and in those three months we by no means spoke around the phone.
(personally I was not so keen on talking with her on the phone).

Fast forward several months... It so happened which i was in her city for some enterprise and i experienced commented
on my web page on how horrible that city was oops!
Nicely she inbox me letting me know how offended she was cos
I was talking about her city (had no idea). She was so bent on proving to me
how excellent her city was that she offered to show me several
fascinating places inside the city. Wow! how bold.

.. Not so keen on this I countered her supply by suggesting a
quick lunch in any area of her choice (she had to prove me wrong).

We met and to say the minimum the chemistry was instant.
.. Lunch went by so fast... experienced to leave back
for the hotel for a meeting so we exchanged numbers and the rest is history.

Still happily married with a single stunning daughter
(a year old).
So all I've to say is the fact that love has no strategy... It just hits you when you the very least expect and sure it can happen on fb also .

Yeah, I received some heart troubles when i was getting no xplode.
Not certain if it was related even though. In any case, considering
that I switched to superpump I haven't experienced any troubles.
Your rating is interesting since a buddy of mine swears that nitric pure is by far the top bodybuilding dietary supplement he has employed so much. Maybe I'll give it a try.

Ladies appear to become much more totally free to put on cross-gender clothing and to act
outdoors their recognized gender role. Think about how
the media portrays women and men. It seems guys are both the stereotypical macho guy or even the bumbling fool.
Guys are significantly less totally free to display their emotions.
Women can be proficient, intelligent, and athletic.

Let me bring up Superboy-Prime. He is an example
of what Superman can do when he will not maintain back, have any ethical compass, and is strictly
driven by rage and revenge. Prime, has killed several (possibly 47) Green Lanterns, and countless other DC Tremendous Heroes and Villians.
The Whole DC Universe knows that Prime will and has the power
to destroy planets and every person that he comes across,
bar none. So if which is what small Superboy-Prime can do, imagine what Superman can do, if he decides to let loose.

Know in World War Hulk, we see Hulk, not like a idiot who
can not believe or reason, and just smashes, but one that has average
intelligence. Strength and other powers on par with Superman( for
the Marvel universe). Hulk, proves himself as being
a wise strategist during the sequence, and even being a prudent leader.
Hulk destroys creatures that no one particular else could
destroy on that world, proving that he is within the class of powers of Superman.

trying to decide who would win Hulk or Superman is like trying to
decide Chicago or New York pizza. But in this example Superman could
win "IF" he takes Superboy Primes's attitude and just rips the Hulk in half ahead of factors get out of hand. the Hulk will win if Superman goes his usual boyscout route and takes his time. WW Hulk shows that Hulk will destroy his enemy, whilst Superman has yet to show he is willing to tap into his potential serial killer side and tear men and women a new one.
So maybe the query must be who would win Superboy-Prime or Hulk?
SuperBoy_Prime of course. Often bet on the deranged serial killer, they seem to usually win. And he seems to become the only person in either Dc or Marvel to truly have Accurate INVULNERBILITY, and he actually uses it.
