Messi Argentina jersey captures every attention of soccer and other sports enthusiasts who would love to wear jerseys. If the Messi jersey has a number 10 on it and is signed by the famous player Messi, many people will not hesitate buying it. Avid fans of Messi are willing Messi jerseys as a form of support and appreciation to the player.

Messi jerseys became even more famous and in demand when Messi scored 5 goals during the UCL – this is a legendary performance that football fans are amazed of. People love to own his jerseys as memorabilia. Collecting jerseys has been some of the people’s favorites and the collection should include those that are owned by Messi.

Although many of his offensive records have now been left in the dust by Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux, former Boston Bruins/New York Rangers center Phil Esposito is still regarded by hockey experts as one of the greatest players in NHL history.

Esposito was born in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario and his prodigious hockey talent quickly became apparent. He was signed by the Chicago Blackhawks as a teenager, and made his NHL debut in’64 quickly earning a spot on the teams top line between Bobby Hull and Marcel Dionne. In’67, Esposito was traded to the Boston Bruins along with Ken Hodge and Fred Stanfield. Within a few years Hodge and Stanfield blossomed into All Stars, while Esposito quickly took his place alongside his former teammate Hull as the best scorer in the league. Suffice to say that Boston fans were of the opinion that theyd gotten the best of the deal.

Last week, Scott Tucker-owned Level 5 Motorsports announced the addition of Marino Franchitti to its driver lineup before this weekend’s Petit Le Mans race at Road Atlanta. Franchitti will join Tucker and fellow driver Luis Diaz in driving the No. 55 Microsoft Office-sponsored entry for the enduro, a 1,000-mile/10-hour race.

Earlier this year, the Scott Tucker-owned racing team Level 5 Motorsports prepared for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, a historical endurance race in the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup series. Like several team, Level 5 targeted to win. However oddly, they decided out from the option to qualify for a beginning position in the race, rather accepting the dead last position for its 2 Microsoft Office-sponsored LMP2 automobiles, Nos. 55 and 95.

“Qualifying for a 24-hour race is meaningless,” says a Level 5 mechanic at the time. “Anything that’s not directly related to winning, we’re going to opt out of.”

Motorsports competitions tend to be held in some of the most appealing locales: southern California, central Florida, just off the coast of France. So it would make sense that motorsports teams would set up base nearby-the climate would be consistent, the travel wouldn’t be far, and the heart of motorsports culture would be just next door. But Scott Tucker’s Level 5 Motorsports team is instead headquartered in Madison, Wisc., a location that works just as well for the team.

We have seen an abundance of publicity regarding the Scott Tucker-owned Level 5 Motorsports racing team’s mid-season decision to change cars. In spite of the risks the change brought of interrupting the explosive momentum the group has maintained since the season’s open, as well as the potential points lost by withdrawing from races while the car was being finished, the change has been nothing but positive. The marriage Level 5′s skillful and talented drivers; the integrity, innovation and reputation of Honda Performance Development; and the precision and technique of Wirth Research has benefited all three groups.

For the second year in a row, the American Le Mans Series Monterey at Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway on the Monterey Peninsula was a six-hour enduro race that led drivers around the circuit into the post-sundown darkness.

Previously, the race had been four hours, with the addition of two extra hours in 2010. For Scott Tucker and his Level 5 Motorsports racing team, the two extra hours allow for some breathing room. “We always try to run a clean race, but little mistakes can add up,” Tucker said last year. “Two extra hours can be a huge advantage even for experienced teams because of those unexpected things you tend to run into with endurance races.”

A round of applause greeted the ears of Level 5 Motorsports driver Luis Diaz as he took off his helmet after his 15-minute prototype qualifying run at Petit Le Mans last Friday. He had just beaten the No. 26 Signatech Oreca 03 Nissan of JK Vernay inches before the checkered flag to secure the pole position for the race on Saturday.

The qualifying victory fulfilled a hope that Level 5 Motorsports and owner Scott Tucker have had for months. Earlier this year, Tucker invested in two brand new HPD ARX-01g LMP2 cars in order to ensure that the team would be competitive in the LMP2 field, especially challenging the usually dominant Nissans. Diaz’s finish was exactly the result Level 5 had hoped to see, and it sent them confidently into Saturday’s race.
