If you want to help out the people of Haiti and pick up a new t-shirt at the same time, the people at Who Are Ya? Designs and Soccer.com have you covered.
Personally, I just ordered the sweet looking blue shirt from Who Are Ya?
News & Notes:
- The NASL has hired Kartik Krishnaiyer of The Kartik Report , MLS Talk , and various other soccer related websites fame. On the upside, this looks to be a great hire by the NASL and hopefully this will mean that NASL.com will be getting top notch content moving forward. On the downside, soccer fans will be seeing an internet goaldmine of information move on to a slightly different line of work.
- I wonder if the new Minnesota club will be hiring Brian Quarstad of Inside Minnesota Soccer next?
- It looks like Montreal has lost Joey Gjertsen to San Jose.
- Yanks Abroad have picked up on Braga throwing cold water on the Stuart Holden to Braga talk.
- SBI.net is reporting that Luis Gil could be close to signing with MLS which would mean another one player lottery.
- Here is a little more on why Lee Nguyen won't be heading back to MLS.
- MLS Talk has a chat with the real Sigi Schmid.
- Cleetus is happy to be back in SoCal.
- WV Hooligan likes what Portland and Vancouver are doing in the build up to making the jump to MLS in 2011.
- The newest Waiting for Gaetjens podcast features new US U-20 assistant coach Eric Wynalda. Good stuff, per usual.
