Last summer I was a contributor to a KPFK show called "The People's Game" that aired during the World Cup.

A co-contributor/host/guest on the show was Altadena filmmaker Pablo Miralles who is in the final stages of making a documentary called "Gringos at the Gate" along with two other graduates of UCLA's film school.

Pobres aficionados del Liverpool

La venta del Liverpool al grupo estadounidense New England Sports Ventures parece estar cerrado, y así los dueños de los Boston Red Sox adquieren al club inglés en 300 millones de euros.

Todo parece ir bien, pues los aficionados de los Reds no querían a los dueños -también estadounidenses- Tom Hicks y George Gillet, pero ahora su equipo pasó a las manos de otros estadounidenses, algo que para ellos es casi un deshonor, como si en México llegara también un grupo de "gringos" a comprar un equipo y "enseñarnos cómo se maneja el futbol".

MLS youngster makes presence felt

D.C. United are stuck at the bottom of the MLS but at least one member of their squad has always been on the rise since the beginning of the season. Andy Najar, the 17-year old Honduran, has been very impressive in 11 starts for United and such has been the speed of his development that some are already tipping him to become a naturalized U.

They shot down the Argies en route so will be getting cheered on by me. They should spice it up a bit in the Chilly South African winter climate.
