In my narrow, cable television-influenced mind all "rallys" involve Birkenstock-clad co-eds, dreadlocked social activist-types, perhaps a few candles and at least one guy playing a Bob Marley song on an acoustic guitar.Thankfully Dynamo fans figured that none of that stuff ever worked for stopping wars so it's damn sure not going to work for doing something infinitely harder like getting a stadium built with public money in a recession.

Catchy song.

Having just watched the engrossing documentary, "Marley", it is worth remembering how much the beautiful game meant to the legendary reggae singer and cultural figure.

Despite hailing from the cricket-loving Jamaica, Bob Marley played football almost as much as he played music and was never far from a ball and a kickabout with his friends.

1. Â Given the success most of the team had against Guadeloupe on Tuesday particularly the back line and center mids Bob Bradley will only make one change to this afternoon's lineup. Â Chris Wondolowski will be benched, Clint Dempsey will pair with Jozy, and Alejandro Bedoya's recent substitute performances will be rewarded with a start on the left wing.

Fueron morenzazos amarillos, los que nos hicieron pasar el trago amargo de todo mexicano en el fucho:
Los Penales =S

Nos da frio esa definicion de partido.
Los isleños jugaron desde el minuto 1 a definir por penales, y lo peor es que lo consiguieron.

But, it's the festive season, I suppose, and I'm a generous sort.

What was striking about Tim's media room - beyond that he has Galaga and Donkey Kong, which is awesome - is that you could tell how much thought he had put into it. He is clearly a considered man, and you can see the appreciation and respect that he has for other's talents and achievements.

One of the many sons of Reggae legend Bob Marley, David Nesta Marley better known as Ziggy Marley is a New England Revolution fan.Â
Ziggy came to the forefront in the US with his Top 40 single "Tomorrow People".Â
For a club whose supporters have endured getting to MLS Cup 4 times but never winning it, the MLS Cup always seems like something they can win tomorrow so perhaps it should come as no surprise that Marley is a fan.
