Pan lies on a rocky bed surrounded by vines, grape clusters, and a slithery salamander. Carved from marble in this sculpture, Pan the satyr, a half-human, half-goat creature of mythology is very well known for his bad behavior.
I ask the American commentators, please stop announcing that Landon Donovan is the “all-time U.S. leading goal scorer.” He is not. With 57 international goals, he’s not even in the Top Five. The all-time U.S. leading goal scorer is Abby Wambach, with 167 goals, followed by Mia Hamm (158), Kristine Lilly (130), Michelle Akers (105) and Tiffeny Milbrett (100). In fact, Abby Wambach is the all-time leading goal scorer in the world, among all soccer players, male or female. (via World Cup Soccer Stats Erase The Sport’s Most Dominant Players: Women)
