theupstart13: needsmorekittens: Hey, I’m on a podcast! This was a lot of fun to record and thanks to Shana and Megan! Tons of fun to record, so please listen! This was so much fun. I third this: Listen! Please and thank you.
Hey, everyone start following F Yeah Ricardo Clark, and hey, submit. (Please, though, none of this crap about how he cost us the World Cup — one, one player didn’t cost us anything as we win and lose as a team and two, no one ever sees the good things he brings to whatever team he’s on, though his coach at Eintracht Frankfurt did.)

jennx0: whatsername104: “We are all better dancers than Landon!” midfielder Benny Feilhaber told HollywoodLife.com at the post-ESPY’s party at Drai’s in Los Angeles July 14, adding, “We got the moves,” while teammate Carlos Bocanegra agreed. Fellow midfielder Stuart Holden thinks he and his teammates’ moves are SO good that they might score them a spot on Dancing, too – before Landon even...
I should clarify some things
Posts I made in haste on Twitter this morning, brought about by all the Spain love here on Tumblr, were probably not in good form and had me clarifying myself (twice) to explain my exact position, which isn’t easy in 140 characters. A big thing you should know about me is that I am a self-professed Amerisnob. There is not a team, club or country, that I love more than the US. That’s...
In the end he had a big effect, that’s obvious. I know him as a very good...– —Nigel De Jong De Jong concluded by saying, “If it had been his game, I and probably one of my teammates would have been sent off in the first half and the game probably never would have gone into extra time and we would have lost by a wide margin and also, I will ban myself from...
Normally, so many early cards will calm the proceedings. Webb, who has a...– ESPN: In defense of yellow-card Howard Webb This. Seriously, if you’re going to complain about Webb, don’t complain because he gave too many yellows. That was decided by the players, not Webb.

bluesfan: 2010fifaworldcup: Honestly, I have no idea how Howard Webb, who by all accounts was demoted by the English FA towards the end of the last Premier League season, got the Final, but there it is. I apologize in advance if he’s shambolic. Someone should overnight Webb a copy of Poll’s Seeing Red. For some light reading ahead of the big day. As someone who has been as perplexed and...
The life of Brian - Chicago Tribune (11/23/2008) →
“McBride’s journey to soccer’s top level is a story of perseverance, grit, luck, true love and a few seriously hard knocks. It begins about a mile from here, at the Greenbriar Elementary School, where as a 2nd grader he first encountered the game at recess. That year he began playing with the Arlington Aces, the local park department’s youth soccer program, an affiliation...
Just wanted to show love to my follower dontfakeit who loves Sam Bradford, Carlos Bocanegra, the USMNT, the Sooners, and is in Oklahoma. No, we are not the same person.
US Soccer Fans, It's Time to Declare our... →
I’d quote the whole thing if I could. The reality of the situation is this: there are a lot of soccer fans in the United States. I met them in college. But MLS fans are sparse and I find that very sad. If you are a true US Soccer fan, who wants the sport to grow in this country, then you have to realize that supporting the sport at a local level only helps it. Support your local teams,...
In Defense of the Referee
1. Both penalties were good calls. You could make a case for them both being red. “Last man” doesn’t mean it’s a obvious goal scoring situation. Yellows were probably justified given the situation. 2. First penalty: there was encroachment by Spain, Iker saved it and the ref didn’t call it. 3. Second penalty, more encroachment by Spain. Referee, at this point,...
Luis Suarez: Heroes and Vigilantes →
“Let me be clear: committing an offense, knowing full well you will be caught, because the consequences of said offense offer a distinct advantage over the consequences of not offending in the first place is an accepted tactical strategy in all sports. Cynical? Maybe. I prefer the term vigilantism, because really, who doesn’t love a vigilante? “However…. “He is not a hero among...
