Saturday
New England v Chicago - nothing at stake cuz NE has the #1 seed and Chicago #3.
DC v Columbus - nothing at stake cuz DC has the #2 seed amd 'lumbus is out.

-I stumbled across a soccer blog with the best name yet: BRUCE'S BELLY!!!!! Of course referring to our fearless leader's (Bruce Arena) gut. BUT..... the site is written in some crazy language that I don't even recognize. The titles and everything else on the page are in English. Am I missing the joke here?
-And don't forget, Champions League Matchday 3 happens next Tue & Wed starring Bayern v Juventus & Milan v PSV.

That's all in Latin. Looks like they're just testing the site out. But they've got links to our two blogs, so obviously they know their shit. Maybe Arena's gastrointestinal system will post in English soon.

"Lorem ipsum..." is, in fact, Latin. It's a standard dummy text for testing layout, both in print and online.

Oh, no! I've been caught with my lorem ipsum down!

I'm still testing and tweaking things. It didn't occur to me that I'd be found out. That's what I get for testing some links! :-D

Stay tuned ...

Bruce,
You chased him out of his reclusive state. Check out the link again and scroll to the bottom of the page.

Maybe I missed something but I cannot figure out what you were talking about when you said "Wonderful people from all over the globe have stopped by for a visit in the last day or two. Here are some of the countries representin' ...... We have also had visitors from 32 or the 50 United States, and of course the District of Columbia (bless their little hearts)."
Who has had these visitors and why are they visiting?
