RATE IT! It's About Time!

Manchester United supporters are rejoicing worldwide, as Ryan Giggs won the PFA's Player of the Year Award last night in England. 

With a career spanning 18+ years all spent with one *single* team (totally unheard of nowadays), chalking up 799 appearances for United, and a trophy case overflowing with prestigious trophies and medals, 35 year old Giggs is a rare breed of athlete. Loyal. Professional. Classy. And the best part? He's still a vital part of the team, teaching kids half his age all the tricks of the trade. It's actually quite a shocker when you realize that this win is the first for Giggsy. He's never won it previously, so it's about time that he did! The award is voted by fellow footballers so it makes this triumph even more fitting. Undoubtedly, Ryan will get a massive reception Wednesday when he steps on the pitch for his 800th appearance for United during their Champions League clash with Arsenal. 

Way to go, Giggsy!
