The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

Recommended Posts

Quote

As for Jinger, I also get the feeling she may be pregnant again, but who knows?

I predict Jinger will have baby #2 pretty quickly, but then wait a while for baby #3. 

I saw the picture of them gazing falsely in wonder at the NYE ball and thought 'hmmm is she pregnant?' so I wouldn't be surprised either.

The Duggar family have their own work out room on the property of the TTH. You see, THIS WAY, none of their grown children would have to do squats in front of us heathens outside of their 'circle'. Once again, they sequester themselves from the 'others'.

Goddddd, this is what I can't stand about him!!!! He is sooooo in love with himself. Every guy I've known in real life who take so pictures like that is a complete douche. I'm sure Jeremy's not the exception!

Yeah, that's my problem with him, too. And then you add that to being a guy who quickly failed at being a pro athlete (never really achieved a bang and then ended with a whimper) after, I expect, firmly believing he'd crush it -- and in my experience that almost seals the deal. 

ETA: Jeremy's response when he started having bad results on the football pitch: http://dailyorange.com/2013/04/former-syracuse-goalkeeper-vuolo-balances-religion-pro-soccer-career/

April 2013

Jeremy Vuolo argued with Marc Sagal, the New York Red Bulls psychologist and man he called one of the best in the world. Sagal posed a simple question.

“Why do you want to be the No. 1 goalkeeper?”

Vuolo said he wanted to glorify God through his play on the field.

“And the sports psychologist would always question me and say, ‘Yeah, OK. I’m buying that a little bit, but I think there’s more to it than that,’” Vuolo said. “And he’d say, ‘I think you want more money and I think you want more fame and I think you want more attention and approval.’”

The former Syracuse goalkeeper, who played for the Orange in 2010, insisted he didn’t. But as the 2012 season wore on and he slipped further and further down the Red Bulls depth chart, Vuolo stopped being able to deny his more selfish motivations.

“Long story short, the Lord began systematically humbling me in ways that I didn’t think were possible to be humbled in such a way,” Vuolo said.

His desires for personal glory and to promote his faith were “waging war on each other.” Vuolo would find himself struggling in the middle of a tough training session, wondering why he even wanted to play the game. The realization of the conflict helped, but by season’s end, he wanted out of New York. In the offseason, he lost his desire to play altogether. On March 7 of this year, he announced his retirement at the age of 25 on his personal blog, and then his intention to immediately begin pursuing ministry.

Three weeks later, he was back, having signed a contract with the San Antonio Scorpions of the second-tier North American Soccer League.

“It’s a great step for him, it’s a good opportunity for him to challenge and really, truly be a consistent No. 1,” former Red Bulls goalkeepers coach Todd Hoffard said, “to get a lot of games under his belt and get some visibility.”

Despite returning to the United States fresh off of a dominant season in Finland — nearly half of his games were shutouts — Vuolo was stuck on the bench with the Red Bulls behind rookie goalie Ryan Meara.

He never saw the field — not in the regular season, not even in the U.S. Open Cup when the Red Bulls faced minor-league teams. Then-head coach Hans Backe didn’t rate him, Vuolo said, and in August, the Red Bulls signed former U.S. national team goalkeeper Luis Robles. Robles buried Vuolo on the bench, but provided a light for Vuolo during an otherwise frustrating season.

“From Jeremy’s experience, I was able to just share with him what happened in my life,” Robles said, “how my wife and I decided what our next plan was going to be.”

Robles’ national team career fell apart. He had to give up playing in Germany, where his career was launched playing for Karlsruhe and Kaiserslautern, because his father became too frail to travel to games. His wife had a miscarriage, his father-in-law got cancer, MLS offers fell through and he had to take a minimum wage job as an “errand boy” at an old friend’s real estate company.

While Vuolo wrestled with his motivations, Robles had just seen his personal and professional dreams decimated. For both, though, Robles held simple advice.

“I’m not as awesome as I thought I was.”

By the end of the season, Vuolo was excited to leave New York. He was one of many players released as a new front office staff cleaned house. He still wanted to play the game, but he wasn’t done being humbled.

His agent arranged a tryout with one of Finland’s top teams, HJK Helsinki, in Valencia, Spain. Vuolo called it the “perfect opportunity.” His friend and former Red Bulls teammate Teemu Tainio were set to join the team.

Vuolo was dominant on the field. He shut out one of the top Norwegian teams, Strømsgodset IF, in a practice match. Off the field, his teammates were excited to talk about the Bible with him.

“It was just an interesting team dynamic that is very rare,” Vuolo said. “You don’t often find, within a few days of meeting a team, that you get along with everybody so well. So everything seemed to be pointing to HJK.”

Even the general manager said the club wanted to sign him. But after returning to the United States, Vuolo got a text message from his agent saying there was no offer from HJK.

It forced him into a lull. He was back living at home in Downingtown, Pa., without offers and struggling to find the motivation to train. Everything pointed to ministry.

But when the San Antonio Scorpions came calling to invite Vuolo to a tryout, he hesitated. Robles remembers being in the airport, about to board a plane to Portland, Ore., and talking to Vuolo to convince him to give the sport one last shot.

His parents convinced him, too. Still reluctant, Vuolo rode down to San Antonio with his father, a preacher. On the way, he realized one of his favorite pastors, Tim Conway, lived in San Antonio. Vuolo’s passion for the sport rushed back. During his tryout, he dove and scrapped his way to a contract offer.

Now, he lives with Conway, balancing his drive for soccer and his future in ministry.

“This is the place where I am,” Vuolo said. “This is the ideal place for me to be focused on ministry, as well as soccer. God’s really given me both.”

I just CANNOT.  Even many Catholic* seminaries have women professors who teach the seminarians (and some even teach theology classes).  When you're trying to double down on the patriarchy even more than Catholic seminaries, you may need to at least stop calling out the ebil Catholics all the time, Jeremy, Ben, & company.....

*full disclosure: I was raised Catholic & consider myself "culturally Catholic," but I don't practice. I do have several friends who are graduates of Catholic seminary programs & I have done academic research about/with Catholic nuns & clergy. I'm not hating on Catholicism here, but rather the idea that Jeremy & company love to criticize the Catholics, yet they're doubling down on the idea of men-only-at-the-pulpit by adding no-people-with-women-parts -teaching-the-men-of-the-pulpit...it's almost more Catholic than the actual Catholics as far patriarchy. Also, as someone who teaches in (public) higher education, I cannot tell you how loathe I find it that they oppose humans with female body parts teaching even history, languages, etc to seminarians.  I am enraged.  I guess they expect all the women instructors at their local bible colleges to just go back home after years of teaching (and earning advanced degrees) so the men can teach their courses.  I'm sure those women will gladly return home to use their graduate degrees, research, and experience teaching college classes to be helpmeets and birth eleventy blessings. I'd tell Piper and Jeremy just what they can do with Jeremy's fountain pens, but I will try to be above it....

/ranty rage over  

Thank you! I'm Catholic and culturally Catholic and I agree with you that if you want to criticize Catholicism, trying to be more inclusive of women in the ministry would be a good start.

Her mother used to belong to Planet Fitness. They showed Michelle at the gym on television. Jana is 29 and has been a reality television "star" most of her adult life. She should be able to go to gym if she wants to. 

As for Jinger, I also get the feeling she may be pregnant again, but who knows?

But if Jana goes to the gym she has to take someone with her (Johanna?) then whose gonna look after the rest of the kids? WW3 would start.

That actually makes sense though. It wouldn't shock me if Jeremy and Jinger have a workout room too. It's much cheaper to spend $1,000 and have all your own equipment, especially weights that don't wear out or need much maintenance, over paying for a gym membership. Has nothing to do with modesty and everything to do with cost-even if half the family used a gym, even a planet fitness membership for everyone is going to cost over $1,000/year.

This irritates me how she just comes right out and says, "if you want to be like ME..." Yeah, because you're so special and accomplished. Just shows how highly they think of themselves. Also, if she were a true professional photographer, why would she want others to have her skills? It makes no sense.

That's sort of a fundie fashion tradition, isn't it? Goes beyond JB and M? .....So maybe they figured it'd be appealing to their market. Since these two are apparently diving headfirst into marketing side gigs of various kinds ...

He's the type of guy who does all the typical dating things with you but still calls you his "friend." He's the type of guy who says "my father will hear about this!" when he sees something he doesn't like. He's the type of guy who still brags about his high school sports team winning the championships. He's the type of guy who wears a suit on campus all the time. 

I'd say you nailed it. 

And we can tell  you did because he's obviously excited to be photographed in absolutely classic giant-douche poses.

So true. They actually think they're special. Competent and talented. Totally believe their own pr. And TLC's.

Little do they know how lucky they are to live in TeeVee Land. Where the magic fairy dust gives you scads of unearned credit based on your unearned "celebrity" alone. If they had to do anything by real-world standards they'd quickly see how mediocre-and-below they are....Maybe that'd spur some of them to put on a bit of hustle. ....

As long as they're celebs, though, it'll never happen. 

...And I still wonder what's up with this scrambling for any and all cash opportunities, including smallish ones.

I think the whole concept of "influencers" has finally reached their sphere and they're enthusiastic about it. Up until recently, social media was a way to keep relevant for the show and to maybe get speaking engagements, which is why Jana had zero interest in it and why Joy and Austin rarely posted. Now they've become fully aware that instagram can be a moneymaker on it's own, they're taking advantage of the fact that they already have an audience and trying to build a brand that will result in ad revenue and such.

This is why he picked her. She is the perfect wife to look at him and thinks he can walk on water. Like I said before, she reminds me of the a politician's wife: got the look down, believes everything he says, thinks he can walk on water, and blindly goes along with what he wants. I am not saying he does not care for her, but he knew what he was doing what he "picked" her to be his wife and become his biggest "supporter"

Exactly....

Plus....Her name is Duggar.  

Does anybody honestly think that Jer would have a high-six-figure Instagram follower account if Jingle were not a Duggar? 

And, given everything we've seen by now, does anybody honestly think that Jer hasn't always been interested in that....and, indeed, fixated on that? And that he isn't very very interested in it now -- and that it isn't paying him dividends? It clearly is. And he clearly really really wants those dividends. 

Just look at his conversation with the team psychologist for the New York soccer team. "Why do you want to be the #1 goalie?" asked the psychologist. "For the glory of God," answered Jer............Well, maybe a little, said the psychologist (remember that this is Jer's account of the convo, of course, and I don't think sports psychologists are necessarily encouraged to immediately tell you you're full of shit when you say something like that). But, said the psychologist, your main impetus is to grab glory and fame for Jer. According to the Jer interview, that apparently seemed undeniable, even to Jer. 

There's no way the desirability of getting a religio-famous wife wasn't also in his mind when he met Jingle, with all her politicians' wifey characteristics. (And I'm also not saying that he doesn't care for her. You can fall for somebody and still have additional motives.)
