[quote=""nksports""]What would likely happen is the US teams would create their own league or join one of the US junior leagues. (US Hockey Tier I is probably about where Canadian Junior A is, a good step or two below CHL). The downside would be a lower level of competition. The ...

Popcorn Time; USSF Election Is Way Too Entertaining

https://www.ussoccer.com/about/governance/2018-us-soccer-president-candidates http://fiftyfive.one/2018/01/us-soccer-divided/ If I had a bag of popcorn for every day there’s been “entertainment” around this election- and that’s been virtually every day since the USMNT failure- I’d very likely be de...

And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting

...On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door; And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming, And the lamplight o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor; And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor Shall be lifted - nevermore!

Last month, I went nuts on a trip involving a couple weird bucket list items. Of course, one of those is all Canadian NHL teams, and I earned the money to amble my way in and out of Winnipeg. That included WHL games in Calgary, Swift Current, and Moose Jaw, followed by a flight to Rapid City, South ...

I'd heard a whisper... then found a Sacramento Bee article from back in May. The article highlights the new Sacramento State AD, who came over from St. Mary's, seeking to complete the arena portion of the rec center students voted for over a decade ago.

Uh... Utah Royals. It's kind of funny how many people are, like, "why do you think Royals is a bad name... it fits with Real Salt Lake!" Which kind of forgets how tacky "Real Salt Lake" is. Moreover, in Utah, a women's pro team attempt again? Utah DOES have a rather well-attended...

Detroit is 4th in a field of 4 for the next 2 franchises... essentially because the other 3 have soccer stadium plans and Ford Field doesn't have Atlanta's "wow factor."

Angst!

I had a feeling, and kind of an interesting think-piece exercise of sorts, about the possibility some years/decades down the road if USA failed to qualify for a World Cup. Well, that happened tonight. Couldn't beat Trinidad & Tobago (population roughly equal to Idaho). As much as I (and many oth...

[quote=""nksports""]Sporting KC played all of their cup games except one at home. And the road game was at Houston.[/quote] Home team is now decided by coin flips (the old bidding process is supposedly gone). What I'm saying is there's a chance. The issue with the cup is that luc...
