I Spent Way Too Much Time Today Faxing To Try And Get World Cup Tickets & News

-Well well, Clint Mathis is a gone from Salt Lake. Just like that. So much for coming back to the US to play for John Ellinger. And he goes to Colorado of all places, who then ship their problem child Jeff Cunningham north to Salt Lake City. Very interesting!
-People sure are hung up on the whole "USA In The Group Of Death" thing aren't they. I disagree, and over the next six months will explain why I think that. The USA can (and must) win this group.
-USA coach Mr Bruce Arena had comments after the draw. And so did some USA players.
-With PSV losing 0-1 to Feyenoord this weekend, the Dutch Eredivisie is jammed in a 3 way tie at the top, with PSV, Feye and AZ Alkmaar all with 35 points. Neither American, DaMarcus Beasley or Cory Gibbs played in the big match due to injuries.
-The finals of the Mexican Laguilla are all set after this weekends second leg matches. Scores & upcoming schedule:
Monterrey 2-1 UANL Tigres (3-1 aggregate)
Toluca 2-1 Pachuca (2-1 aggregate)
So the final series will be
Thursday in Toluca at Nemesio Diez Stadium - see the match at 3pm on TeleFutura
Sunday in Monterrey at Tecnologico Stadium - see the match at 5pm on Univision
-Simon Kuper writes on the Brazilian luck: Beauty and the best for Brazil
-The NCAA national championship was Sunday afternoon down in North Carolina, and Maryland won 1-0 over New Mexico making them champs! Congrats to the Terps. Their forward Marc Burch played a great game and scored the only goal.
-In the biggest Euro game this weekend, Inter beat Milan 3-2 in the derby della Madonnina, moving Inter to 2nd place in Serie A, but still 10 points behind leader Juventus.
-The eight 3rd place Group Stage finishers from the Champions League did not advance to the knock out stages, but they will be put into the knock out stages of the lesser UEFA Cup. Those eight are:
Club Brugge
Udinese
Schalke
Betis
Thun
Lille
Rosenbourg
Artmedia
-Reading opened their lead in the Championship Division to 4 points over Sheffield United with a 5-1 polishing of Brighton. Convey & Hahnemann played the full 90 for Reading, but Hahnemann gave up a goal! What is this world coming to?
-Things are not looking good in San Jose for fans of their great team. City and team officials are not getting it done. Here are two stories on the disaster. One - and - two.
-On the other hand, there looks to be some great news coming in from Kansas City, with a press conference scheduled for mid-day Tuesday. The part that makes everyone think it's good news is the fact that they have invited season ticket holders to the event. They did not do that last year when the team was put up for sale. So expect to hear about a new owner for the team, and plans to build a stadium.

How'd you do in your attempt at tickets, Mr. Mig? Sounds like the Fed organized a big ol' fiasco with the whole faxing process.

Anyone see the picture on MLSnet on the story about the Mathis/Cunningham trade? Jeffro sure looks shocked to be going to RSL.

I wouldn't count on a new owner or stadium for Kansas City. I expect it to be more like a stay of execution.

If only Tookie was so lucky.
