here's one vote for "John Beilein's head in a Futurama jar"
MLS Cup Final Tonight!
Who ya got? Is this is it for Becks/Juninho?
Personally if Davis doesn't play, I really can't see Galaxy losing; and to be honest I think it's great for MLS and US soccer to have a dominant, recognizable team. I really don't think Becks is coming back, but I'm hoping Keane can be all like "C'MON MAN!!!" and talk him into staying.
I know there's alot of soccer fans on this board but i don't know how many watch MLS. Anyways, cheers and enjoy the game!
Sporting Kansas City won the rights to UM standout Soony Saad today. As someone who works for Sporting, this is very exciting.
Gotta start saving up for my new jersey!
ESPN2 right now. As someone not huge into soccer, I didn't realize the MLS All-Star has a winning record against foreign powers over the last few years. Manchester is on their preseason tour, and Manchester U is coming off a loss to Kansas City.
Discussion for those who may be watching, or bored.... whatever.
An interesting story out of Seattle from the weekend. The Seattle Sounders FC, lost to the L.A. Beckham's 4-0 and management decided to give all the season ticket holders their money back for that game in the form of a credit for next years tickets:
That is an impressive precedent to set, especially since they have 30,000+ season ticket holders. Fuzzy math says at $30 a ticket, they are paying just under $1 million for a random early season loss.
