Humorous mistake from The Independent in an article today:

[Clint Dempsey] has become a cult figure at Fulham after being signed from New England Patriots by Chris Coleman in 2007. Has flourished under Roy Hodgson and has the happy knack of weighing in with crucial goals – witness his stunning winner against Juventus in the Europa League.

No matter how many hundreds of times I've heard it, or will hear it again, that Wavin Flag song never gets old.

That is amazing. Reminds me a bit of the inauguration last year, only warmer.

Hey, does anyone know a good soccer bar in Waterton Canyon, CO (or Littleton)?

Yup, I know a couple of those hipsters...


My god, Balboa's mullet is effing legendary. Is that thing in the hall of fame somewhere?

Like I was saying... Do you think Seattle's FO will offer a refund if we beat them?

I caught some of the 98 Arg-Eng match. Some guy named Gallardo was really dominant...

I've been on the road, and not to South Africa, so maybe somebody already posted this link, but here are some of the advantages of playing futbol at the World Cup level:

Sasha to Anderlecht.

That's awesome! I love that the World Cup is being played in South Africa. I love to see this display of support and consider how it differs from the kind of public support Germany got last time around. I love how culture manifests itself in futbol and fandom. This clip is so lively and authentic. What's better than a Youth Steel Drum Band from Soweto?! Ok, so they're playing the official theme song which was probably written with the help of some some slick international publicity consulting firm, but they're doing it in their own way, and I think it's beautiful.

If Sasha can be left off the final 23 and go to Anderlecht, then surely Bornstein is headed to Chelsea.
