I Get What I Want From My News

-Business Disaster In DC. The deal for Global Partners, led by team President Kevin Payne, to buy DC United from AEG has fallen apart, and is now officially off, "by mutual decision." Steve Goff of the Washington Post has the story. This has other repercussions beyond just a new ownership group for the team, as Global were seen as the people who were going to build the new stadium using their real estate project knowledge. And taking it one step further, Global was also recently picked by the Milwaukee group to try and build a stadium with them. Does this effect that deal as well?
-Steve Davis of the Dallas Morning News tries to get US Soccer to talk about their ticket sale debacle, but gets only vague & lame answers.

Peter Wilt has commented on the DC buyout colapse on the Milwaukee boards in BigSoccer.

The says that the colapse of that deal does not affect Milwaukee's situation and that Global is still on board with them.

That was a cool interview with Cherundolo. I love to see our boys from the U.S. doing well overseas.
