Slide Tackle is the name of a video Taylor made, yet never posted. It was posted to YouTube by user oeb62 on June 11th 2007, found on the Hymn of One website.


Taylor: So I started in the tournament last weekend. I did not play well at all. I don't know, maybe my mom is right. I just, I can't seem to focus lately. So anyway, coach put me in defense during the scrimmage today, and put Sam in my position. So I really don't know what's going to happen in the next game. She got the ball towards the end of the scrimmage, and she was running with it towards the goal, and I was chasing her, and I'm way faster than she is. And I caught up, and I could have easily slide tackled and gotten the ball away from her, but I didn't. I let her score. Everyone got really really excited and carried her around on their shoulders. It was the first time she's scored in a game. Even a practice one. Anyway, I was really excited to tell my mom this. I don't know what I was thinking. She got so upset, she had to pull the car over. She said she couldn't imagine that her daughter would ever let anyone win anything. (Taylor starts pacing.) I said I only did it because Sam had never scored in a game, and I wanted her to feel what it was like. (Taylor leans in to the camera.) My mom said that that doesn't matter. She never let anyone beat her at anything when she was younger. That's how she got to where she is in life. Then I said something really mean that I totally regret. I said that was probably because she didn't have any friends when she was younger, just like she doesn't have any friends now. And I knew I'd crossed the line, so I just shut up. I could see her eyes start to well up, and I just couldn't speak. I knew that if I said anything, I would start to cry too. We got home and I came up to my room, and I haven't been downstairs since. I can hear her puttering around down there.

(Taylor leans in and turns the camera off. Cut to her sitting on her bed, drying her hair.)

Taylor: Okay, so I'm really excited, and I have to do this quick, because Sam is coming over for dinner any minute. Okay, an hour ago, my mom came into my room. I could tell she had been crying. She said that she was sorry. She! To help you understand what a momentous occasion this is, let me tell you that my mom has never apologized for anything. She said that she just wanted me to be really good at what I love to do, and she knew I loved soccer. That's why she pushed me so much. Then she said she knew how much my friendship with Sam meant to me. And then, she did the coolest thing ever. She said that Sam could come over to dinner. I've never been allowed to have a friend over for dinner. This is amazing! Incredible! Stupendous! Stupefying! Yeah, it's really cool! So, anyway, I gave her a big hug and now, Sam's mom is going to drop her off in just a little while. Okay, bye!


  • Some people think that because this blog was posted on the Hymn of One site, Taylor, and possibly Sarah, are plants by the Order. Others believe that this video was never posted because it was part of a storyline subsequently abandoned by the Creators, dealing with Taylor's friend Sam. While that answer is plausible, it does not explain how the video got on the Hymn of One website.
  • A more mundane explanation: A number of lonelygirl15 videos were placed on a hidden directory at the, probably for use by the show's production team, but it was stumbled upon by fans on April 27, 2007. This video was among those found (though Taylor was not yet confirmed to be canon), and it was the only unreleased video in the bunch (though a number of the videos in the directory had alternate titles). Eventually this video was posted to youtube by a fan. No official explanation of why this video was never released has ever been made, but it appears that the Creators decided to ditch the storyline about Taylor's friend Sam and move in a different direction.
