What A Pasting Our Boys Laid On The News Last Night

-How sweet it is! My Thunder absolutely destroyed Colorado last night in the US Open Cup 4-1. Melvin Tarley scored all 4 for the good guys in blue! Before the match there is no way you could have gotten me to predict this kind of game. Its so much fun to be in the crowd for a match like this too. We will be bringing a gang to Kansas City for the next round. How many people? I don't know yet. But we will make a lot of noise, cuz we always do. Big congrats to the other First Division team who pulled the upset last night, that's Rochester, who beat Metrostars. Chicago, Dallas, LA, KC, DC & San Jose were also winners.
-St Phil has come to the financial rescue and made the Metrostars new home happen. They will begin buidling a stadium in Harrison, New Jersey very very soon. What great news!
-And beyond the stadium stuff, Alexi Lalas is already earning his keep as Pres & GM of the Metrostars. This week there are indepth features on the team in both the New York Times (found in the New York Region section, not the Sports section), and the North Jersey Herald. Good job Red.

-UEFA Champions League 2nd Qualifying Round winners were settled last night. The biggest name to be ousted was Dynamo Kyiv. My recent love, Sheriff were also knocked out. The 3rd Qualifying Round matches will be played Aug 9/10 & 23/24.
-The less retarded of the 2 Neville boys, Phil, has left Manchester United, where he was born, to play for Everton.
-Attempting to qualify for the UEFA Cup competition, Newcastle were bumped out 4-2 (agg.) by Deportivo La Coruna.
-Chicago Fire is going to add Lubos Kubik to their version of the hall of fame, the Ring Of Fire. Others in the ring are Peter Nowak & Frank Klopas.
-Charlie Davies scored for the USA U18's as they beat Serbia & Montenegro in the Milk Cup 1-0. The host team, Northern Ireland, also won with a 2-0 upset over Brazil. USA & N Ireland will now face off for the Cup title on Friday night in Coleraine.
