Glad to see Altidore getting time off the bench. Hope it continues. I also hope Edu's knock isn't too serious. Holden had a good match today. It would be sweet if Dempsey keeps his scoring form.

Holy expletive deleted! When was the last time Americans scored four goals in Euroleagues?

Misplaced modifier. When was the last time four Americans scored goals in Europe.

What time is the Seattle v LA playoff game tonight?

For some reason the MLSsoccer.com home page has it listed at both 8 pm AND 9 pm.

See Goff's Twitter page for interesting NCAA men's and women's news. The ACC site lists Maryland as the second seed and Virginia as the third seed for the women's tournament that starts at midweek (they ended in a three-way tie for the runnerup spot with Florida State).

JML: BSPN2 is going on the air from Seattle at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time. Because there is a 2.5-hour time slot, kickoff will presumably be at 8:15 or so.

Thanks.

Upon a more careful reading I realized the Los Angeles - Seattle 9 pm game listed in the box at the top of the page is the 2nd leg on Nov 7.

Tonight's game is listed at 8 pm.

Never mind...

I saw just a snippet of highlights from yesterday's game at PHP. Did they succeed in getting rid of most of the throwball markings on the pitch from the previous night?

Buddle with a wondergoal has LA up 1-0 at the break.

RT @JeffKassouf: Sources: Washington Freedom, FC Gold Pride folding, WPS announcement Monday - http://is.gd/gxVKK #WPS about 1 hour ago

My wife just said, "Well, I'm glad Seattle lost..."....LOLZMAGGEDON...

Beckham, Donovan, Buddle = huge

Montero = invisible

Disappointing news about the Freedom and Gold Pride. On the eve of the 2003 WWC, the USWNT got the news that the WUSA folded. Now, as they try to qualify for the 2011 WWC, they learn that two WPS teams are folding.

Until Goff reports it, its a rumor.

*IF* Gold Pride and Freedom are folding, IMO it's curtains for that league.

*IF* the league folds, I think a fair question to ask is why the hundreds of thousands if not millions of female college and high school soccer players and former players by and large did not support the league.

Come to think of it, that is a fair question to ask whether the league folds or not.

Hard to decide who had the better goal: Buddle or Avila. I'll go with Buddle since his was on the road.
