I wonder if Everton will be rocking their new black & hot pink away unis tonight when they take on the MLS All Stars in Salt Lake?
With so many big names not on the MLS All Star team, I really don't know how interested I am in tonight's match.
News & Notes:
- US Soccer.com has the Abby 100 goal tribute video up on YouTube now. Cool stuff!
- Apparently Rex the Rhino needs a friend.
- Check out who is replacing Steven Cohen on FSC's Fox Football Fone In. This should be better than Alexi Lalas landing with ESPN.
- US-Mexico at Azteca Stadium in a few weeks is sold out.
- Grant Wahl asks the question that many asked when Gooch signed with AC Milan: Will he play? I sure hope so.
- It looks like Ricardo Clark will move to Livorno on a free transfer after the 2009 MLS season concludes.
- Will MLS games on ESPN in England get better ratings than in the states?
- Terry Cooke was the Rapids player waived to make room for their new signings. I wish the Rhinos could afford to add him for the stretch run.
- Sunil Gulati is talking up the US chances to host the World Cup on the heels of Sepp Blatter's visit to the states.
- Four US players were named to the Gold Cup All-Tournament team.
- Montreal loses again. This time, it's to a real French team.
