If adding the first two rounds of the playoffs to the season ticket package isn't a great reason to go out and plunk down $99 for a Rhinos season ticket, then I don'tknow what you are waiting for.

Rhinos add third keeper to the roster


Tim Melia will be the third string goalkeeper for the Rhinos in 2008. It will be interesting to see if the Rhinos loan him out to a USL 2nd Division team or if he will occupy a roster spot all season.

News & Notes:

- US has a podcast interview with Abby Wambach ahead of Olympic qualifying.

- The injury bug has hit Taylor Twellman and Steve Ralston are down for the Revs and Carlos Ruiz is out for LA after week one.

- MLS is saying that West Ham is the opponent for this year's All Star game. Didn't this leak out weeks ago?

- I like Minnesota's new logo and their new TV ad.

- San Jose is looking at a English single capper up top.

- has some insights into whom the Red Bulls might be looking to add.

- Is SJ-LA really the best rivalry in MLS? I'd vote for Chicago-Dallas.

- Is Blanco the most valuable MLS import? I'm voting for Christian Gomez. I mean, he's been MLS MVP before.........
