  • Lala Land?

    By nature I’m a realist. Now whether or not that makes me overly cynical or pessimistic I’m not sure, but I do try to be reasonable when considering my options. In this case, I’m torn over the comments made by Los Angeles Galaxy president, and former U.S. national team stalwart, […]

  • Juan Pablo Angel gets his Wings

    He was never hailed as the savior of Major League Soccer — unlike a certain former English Premier League golden boy — but the arrival of Juan Pablo Angel to the New York Red Bulls, and more importantly U.S. soccer has already begun to pay major dividends. Since Angel was […]

  • Don’t Tread on Me, Alan Shearer

  • Where have you gone, Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink?

     Where in the world has the English Premiership gone?!?! Do I really have to entertain myself now with Saturday morning cartoons again? Most would say that would be an appropriate activity for my maturity level. Though, watching Batman dish out some dark-knight justice would be cool, it still wouldn’t make […]

  • Three Reasons NOT to Root for Man U

    **Disclaimer:  This entry reflects the foolish ranting and passion of a simple fan of what Pelé calls “the beautiful game” and should in no way bear any resemblance to what some might call ‘reason.’  As such, I hope you can take my opinions in the light-hearted manner in which they […]
