Who the hell cares about the Red Bulls though? Ha!
Good looking on the CCL match as well Steve:-)

Totally off topic/different sport, but in case you haven't seen these awesome pictures of Lance Armstrong throwing this fool down here's you're chance:

I had no clue the CCL match was coming up -- something to watch, definitely.

Nice work GOAL group - 'cept you might want to rethink using a photo featuring a dude giving the finger (to the right of the drums in the main banner photo).

Hey Goff,

Any chance that DCU is looking at any of the defenders now on trial for the Metroscum aka NY Red Bulls?

Yo I've heard that Donovan is eligible for Champions League, does anyone know if he'll be dressing?
Also, Arshavin(sp?) with Arsenal and is he eligible?

a bunch of those UEFA games will available to watch online at espn360 online. You can view them later as well if you can't watch them live.
I wish La Liga would allow espn to carry their games. I don't feel like paying a stupid monthly subscription just to watch them play.
