You know the token “old guy” who shows up at your pick-up basketball games and still keeps up with everyone half his age? Soccer’s “old guy” is Ryan Giggs, and he’s not just playing pick-up, he’s still competing in the top soccer league in the world!
At a shade over 39 years old, Ryan Giggs improved on his own record today by scoring his first Premier League goal of the season, marking the 23rd straight season in which he’s scored at least once. It also makes Giggs the only player to have scored at least 1 goal in every single Premier League season since its inception in 1992-93.
There’s just one word for this kind of feat: legendary.
This is a gem: Sir Alex and some Manchester United players took part in a good old fashioned game of charades for the MUTV channel, and Fergie seemed to get pretty frustrated with his teammates.
Being tasked with acting out Maradona’s “Hand of God” goal, Ferguson’s flailing hand gestures stumped his teammates far longer than it should have, prompting the legend manager to drop an F-bomb out of frustration! Much to the enjoyment of Ryan Giggs and Wayne Rooney on the opposing team.
Every season you can’t help but be surprised by how much Ryan Giggs still plays for Manchester United. Well we finally figured out why: the lad doesn’t seem to age!
This picture has been making the rounds on soccer blogs today, and it shows Giggs’s career through 20 years of Merlin Football stickers. How many more kits will he go through we wonder?
