I won't throw too many more flames into this fire. We all know the comments that were said by MLSSoccer.com's Simon Borg on Monday's episode of ExtraTime Radio. That episode was pulled down yesterday, it is now available for download once again. It has been edited from it's original version to include an apology for any offense.

Dempsey's family was certainly not wealthy. But neither do they seem desperately poor, nor far outside the American mainstream. His Dad, we learn in the video segment, worked for a railroad and in construction, his Mom was a nurse, his sister was a high-level tennis player, and Clint eventually hooked up with the Dallas Texans elite youth club before spending three years at Furman University (an excellent private liberal-arts school in South Carolina).

First things first, hard luck to England and their World Cup bid. Coming from a country whose best sport is one that only 10 countries in the world play and only 5 play well (seriously, I don't know why New Zealand is still playing Cricket), India has never had to face the disappointment of 'losing out' on hosting any premier event in the sport.

A lot of Aussie media snobs have been cringeing at the World Cup Bid presentation.

The same media who love Rugby League talk, AFL cliches etc etc, but seem to think Australia without it's natural wonders and diversity has something else to sell.

They should leave our shores a little more and talk to people who want to come to this place.

So Domenech is giving us and the media a little hint of that bizarre sense of humor that made him famous infamous after losing Euro 2008. Â But, unlike in 2008, I'm sympathetic to Domenech's sass to the media.

It's Maxwell's birthday today, and the dude turns 29. Really? It doesn't seem like he's that old, but anyway - happy birthday, Max!

Signing Max a year ago was such a cool move, and I've loved him ever since. Not just because he's totally cute, but because he fits right into this team while bringing an alternative twist to the leftback position in that he's attack oriented, in contrast to Abidal who plays the positon more defensively.
