Twinkle Twinkle Little News

-Midfielder Daniel Hernandez rejoins New England in MLS after 4 years in the Mexican First Division with Necaxa. I always thought he was a hard-nosed fiery bastard who could help many teams, but seemed to be trouble when things weren't going so well. Seeing as Steve Nicol coached him before, he obviously knows what he is getting in to. I would also think that Hernandez wants to get seen by Bruce Arena for a chance at the World Cup squad. He will become eligible to play once the August 15 transfer window opens up again. Good luck Danny.
-The very talented Charlie Davies smacked in a hat-trick as the USA U18's won the Milk Cup today against the host team Northern Ireland 4-2. Great showing from the team, drawing with Brazil and beating Serbia & Montenegro before tonites win.
-Check out this odd website with movie clips that must be some sort of guerilla marketing by Puma. A dude in a parking lot smashes a shot against Freddy Ljungberg's car and then runs away. A really genius one is a hidden camera deal showing the Italian's training, and the drill they are doing is "how to take a dive"! Awesomely funny.
-If yer loafin around at home tonight and yearning for some futbol then get yerself over to Fox Soccer Channel and check out my Boysss the Minnesota Thunder, the Mighty Mighty Thunder in Portland to take on the Dirty Stinky Hippies aka Portland DSH. Its live at 10pm central time. Or if yer in the Twin Cities then get yer sweet cheeks over to Champps Americana to watch the game with other fans & dufuses. Its in St Paul at 2401 W 7th St. See you there. We need 3 points badly!

-One of my favorite players, The Baby Faced Assasin, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer just might see action for Man U soon. Its been a long two years out with nasty knee stuff. You have to wonder if he still has it.
