As we do every so often, today we present a business blog of a prominent televised soccer
event.Â The New York/Los Angeles rivalry provides the latest installment in this regular feature.Â
The match was rescheduled into weekday prime time because of Hurricane Irene and provides a
national outlet for the Red Bulls' diminishing playoff hopes.
The World Football Challenge kicked off on Wednesday with Manchester United visiting Foxboro to
take on the Revolution. The latest iteration of the Summer of Soccer features one of the strongest
collection of teams we have seen touring the United States.Â These matches are part of the summer
ritual in MLS.
Miami FC will play the Carolina Railhawks this Saturday May the 8th at 7:30 pm. It's the 4th game
in a row for the Blues at home before they head on the road. This home stretch of the season has
been somewhat successful if we point out that the team is one of only two team in the USSF Div 2
that remains unbeaten, however, all games have ended in ties.
This coming Saturday May 1, 2010 Miami FC will host the Tampa Bay Rowdies. Game time is set for
7:30 p.m.. It's expected the Rowdies will bring down a large number of fans and they are hungry for
a win after their loss against the NSC Stars in Minnesota this past weekend. Read more HERE
The Blues played a friendly this Sunday versus Universitario Uruguay, a local pro-am team which
ended in a Miami FC victory.
Sunday morning, after enduring my way through Chelsea's all-too-easy 2-0 win over Liverpool, I made
my usual trek down the street to the nearest Dunkin' Donuts.* When it came time for my order --
large regular + some unhealthy blob of sugared dough -- there was a pause. Instead of my typical
sweat pants I was in shorts and a t-shirt.
It was Saturday morning and I needed to run a few errands with my 2 year old son. I thought I
would take him to Patriot Place to walk around and get some exercise. Patriot Place is adjacent to
Gillette Stadium where the New England Revolution play. The Revs would be playing FC Dallas later
Charlie Sheen and Chuck Zito at Dunks; 'nuff said.I don't think I've ever used this forum to rant
on anything but football. I'm making an exception today.
Dunkin' Donuts drives me f$%king crazy. I start almost every day with an iced coffee, and usually
it's made by some kid, 18-22, whose idea of a regular coffee is a cup of cream with a dash of
coffee for color.
So I woke up Sunday morning after this weird dream. Something about the U.S. national team beating
Honduras 3-2 mixed with me being chased by Carlo Costly and Carlos Pavon in something straight out
of the Michael Jackson 'Thriller' video. Odd. So odd I decided it was worth breaking my 10-month
old self-imposed ban from Dunkin' Donuts coffee.
It was early. It was morning. It was early morning.
With my mind still on autopilot, I made daily visit to the local Dunkin Donuts and was quickly
awakened by the smell of roast coffee and - get this - a dude in front of me wearing a white
Chicago Fire jersey.
