Week 13 is sure to be a treat for us Major League Soccer fans, with 13 games set to be played. While going 4 for 11 with my predictions last week, my fantasy team fared much more successful accumulating 92 points. Benny Feilhaber as my captain registered 40 points alone. Go me! Let’s see how my […]
Instead of pumping out another commentary piece on a subject within U.S. Soccer, I thought it would be fun to play movie critic and officially review my all-time favorite soccer motion picture, “Once in a Lifetime.” The documentary originally released in 2006, chronicles one of the most electric time periods in American soccer history, stemming […]
In its first nationally televised game of the season the Columbus Crew SC hosted the Chicago Fire in a Friday night rivalry game between the two squads. Chicago came to Columbus fresh off a visit to Yankee Stadium where they saw a two goal lead squandered and came away with a draw. Columbus returns home […]

The road to redemption hasn’t been a struggle thus far for the New England Revolution, as the team sits in second place in the Eastern Conference table, two points behind D.C. United. Their next match on Sunday, May 31 will mean a little extra to the club, as they face the team that defeated them […]
The “will they or wont they” saga is finally over. Toronto’s beloved “football” franchise has found itself a new home. As it just so happens, that home is already occupied by Toronto’s other football club.
Week 12 Major League Soccer action is right around the corner as the run of mid-week matchups continues with the Revolution travelling to the heart of the country to battle Sporting KC. Last week I squeaked out a .500% prediction rate going 5 for 10. With the Colorado and Sporting KC match being postponed, I feel […]

The second leg of Portland’s three game road trip takes them to Houston, Texas. A city that is currently absorbed with the fate of their National Basketball Association team, the Houston Rockets. While the Dynamo might not be a true rival, the two cities aren’t exactly on friendly terms after the Portland Trailblazers stunned the […]
In sports we often times forget that the players we are paying to watch day in and day out, were kids and fans once too. We all too often associate the player and the team he plays for as the end all be all, never really thinking about who the player may have been a fan […]
I’m back! I’ve been working through final projects and exams the last two weeks, and I apologize for the absence. Quite a bit has happened since my brief sabbatical, and I feel it’s only fair that I give you a recap of some of the major stories for both your benefit, and, especially, mine. After […]
Here we go again, kids. Major League Soccer action is upon us in just a few minutes, with a mid-week clash between Kaka and Orlando City, as they battle Ben Olsen’s DC United. Last week I once again fell below the .500% mark with my predictions, going 5 of 12. Let’s see how my predictions go […]
DC United have a lot of matches to play in the next few weeks. “How many”, you ask? They play SEVEN matches in four rounds. Seven. That’s a lot. Obviously, Ben Olsen’s going to have to manage his players’ fitness and rotate accordingly, but if you find the right players, you can stand to profit over the […]
Soul-sucking. Deflating. Like the feeling you got when you’d do something bad and get caught by your parents, but they wouldn’t come down hard on you, they’d just tell you they were “disappointed in you”. What a horrible feeling. Disappointment is worse than rage because disappointment breeds apathy.
Since 2009, when the Seattle Sounders graced the MLS with its presence they started off on the wrong foot with the holding Champions, Columbus Crew SC. The Sounders had sniped coach Sigi Schmid from Columbus who took Brad Evans across the country with him. From that moment on, to say that Columbus was not a […]
