in town for free camps
So rivals Seattle and Portland played in some tournament.
Seattle had a dude dismissed with a second yellow. Then another guy was shown a straight red for an elbow.
This Dempsey did this (see embed below):
Seattle finished the game with 7 men (a couple injuries and all subs used).
For all the MGoSoccer fans out there, the USA U-20 team takes on Serbia in the World Cup quarterfinals at 12:30 tonight on FS1.
These games have been really late/early in the morning since the tournament is in New Zealand, so i'll happily take a 12:30am kickoff on a Saturday night. Exciting to see the future of US soccer with this squad.
I know I posted this a few weeks ago but I just wanted to remind everyone that we are having a get-together for fans of the newly-forming AFC Ann Arbor tomorrow night at Conor O'Neill's. We'll be there around 8; if you can't make it right at 8pm feel free to come afterwards, I imagine we will all be drinking the night away. Stop in and say hi. Anyone is welcome to share their ideas for banners/chants, etc. We hope to see some of you there!
Edit: I also forgot to mention we will be in the private room they have. If you walk in the FRONT door, the room is to the right (behind where the bars are). If you can't find it just ask a server -- feel free to walk right on in, the door will be open.
Edit 1.1: Fixed the title you sarcastic, little....
I know Brian has recently posted about AFC Ann Arbor and I know there are some of you who are local that are pretty interested in this. We are starting a supporters group for the team. We are known as the Main Street Hooligans and I just wanted to let everyone know that we will be having a gathering at Conor O'Neill's on April 18th at 8pm. We are just looking to get some people together so we could all meet each other and go over what our group will be about and just get to know one another before the first game on May 1st. So it will be a low-pressure/high alcohol event and should be a good time. I would love to meet anyone who is interested in singing along with us on gameday. I have had a surprisingly high number of people tell me they were interested in what we are doing so I think this could be pretty big and I'm definitely looking forward to it. We have a limited number of tee shirts and I'll be tallying up the number of people who would want a scarf to submit an order if there's enough interest in that. I hope to see some of you there!

"MLS is a joke" okay, got that out of way. We all realize the quality of play isn't as good as the big European leagues but if nothing else, the games can be very exciting. Some big names have arrived (Kaka, Villa, Gerrard, etc.) and some have left (Henry, Donovan). More could come, i.e. Drogba, Chicharito, Xavi, van der Vaart, Balotelli????
My team in the East is Toronto. I think Giovinco will be transformative for them and how they got him I have no idea. Linking with Bradley will be awesome to see and will revive Altidore's career. Obviously the Revs look good too as they have a solid team. On paper, both expansion teams look solid and were constructed really well. If NYCFC gels, they could win it, really, they have good players at almost every position. Columbus will be good. The East is far more interesting though the West has the two best teams.
In the West , Sounders or Galaxy?
