If you have a broadband connection go check out this video, which is promoting grassroots American soccer.

Cup predictions

This is my attempt at actually predicting accurately. My prediction is that the Cup will be between the Revs and the Galaxy. (Disclaimer: if my prediction turns out to be wrong, don't blame me!)

Colorado Rapids advance 5-4 on shootout So much for my predictions of Dallas winning the Cup, or at least getting there! Let's see: this year my Crew did pathetically (making them, in my opinion, The Most Underachiving Team in America - forget about "the hardest-working team in America") and my prediction for Cup winner (Dallas) didn't even make it to the conference finals. It's a good thing I don't bet!

Will MLS club boost national success? Frank Yallop, coach of Canada's men soccer team, hopes the impending arrival of a Major League Soccer team in Toronto will make his life easier. Maybe yes, maybe no. Two years after MLS's opening season, the US scored a whopping one goal in the World Cup. That aside, does Toronto even have the fan base to do that? (Yes, I'm still waiting for Rochester to make it into MLS. Then again, I'm a die-hard fan of the Most Under-Achieving Team in America and predicted that Dallas would win the Cup this year. Seeing my recent track record, maybe a team in Toronto isn't such a bad idea after all!)

Soccer gamble: Can MLSE make it work? This article includes a nice little recap of MLS history.

I'm a slacker; I finally got around to updating my blog links (on the right side of the page), and checking my blog's email account. Thank you D and Climbing the Ladder for linking to my blog (yea! I have readers!).


Hmm, FC Dallas is still in the playoffs. Maybe my predictions will come true (for once)?

Oy. I have really been out of the MLS loop lately! Sadly, though not surprisingly, the Crew did not make the playoffs this year. However, I am still rooting for Dallas, and, from what I can see, they have improved since I last updated my blog. Here are today's news and views from the world of MLS, which are basically a rundown of today's matches:
