Manchester United could have any goalkeeper in the world. I was a 23-year-old kid from New Jersey who, from an early age, had to cope with Tourette's Syndrome, a brain disorder that can trigger speech and facial tics, vocal outbursts and obsessive compulsive behavior.
Today, I am blessed to be living a dream. And yet, if it all went away tomorrow, I know I would still have peace.
Winning is fun, but those moments that you can touch someone's life in a very positive way are better.
When you play professionally, you get accustomed to turnover. Players come and go - they get injured, they get transferred, they get cut from the team. Coaches are hired, and coaches are fired. It's just part of the world you live in.
I don't complain when it's sunny.
In the end, very little gets in the way of what Manchester United wants to do.
Sure, I like ice cream, but when you keep a healthy lifestyle, it's: Do you prefer sweets and crappy food, or do you prefer to have a nice body? It depends on what you want more.
My faith helped me stay grounded in defeat and victory, to not get too excited about the successes and too low about the failures.
You want to be wanted, and you want people to rely on you.
When I was 11, I developed a new symptom - the worst one yet: I had to touch people before I talked to them. When I say 'had to,' that's exactly what I mean: if I didn't touch them first, I literally couldn't form the words.
I think part of being in the public eye is getting recognized and dealing with positive and negative scrutiny.
Pressure can be good. It helps you to see what you're all about.
Every old goalkeeper loses a step at some point, but you can gain that back through experience.
I wanted to be a soccer player; I wanted to do it at the highest level.
I'm on television, ticcing and twitching. I think that's kind of cool.
