And the Chronicle's Week In Review.

The Deseret Morning News with a feature on Salt Lake striker Jason Kreis, the MLS all time leader in goals scored with 107 & counting, who they say is having one of his best years ever. Now I would say that '99 was his best year, by far (18 goals & 15 assists), but who am I to quibble.

Most of us know about the young American midfielder at Hamburg - Benny Feilhaber, but there is another young American there with him - forward Preston Zimmerman. Andrea Canales tells the story for Soccernet.

And Jeff Carlisle at Soccernet writes about Lew Wolff, the potential owner of a new club in the Bay Area. Wolff owns the Oakland A's baseball team. I think he is going to make this work.

And this secretly popped up at MLSnet. Looks pretty official to me. Do you know the way to San Jose?

You really do have a prurient interest in the appearance of players---you make an awful lot of comments about players' bodies, faces, hair, and uniforms.

I've never known a hetero guy who was so preoccupied with what Craig Waibel or Preston Burpo looks like.

Therefore, we're left to conclude that you...
hey, but that's cool---I'll still read you.
I have no problem with gay guys.

Did you read the interview with Landy Cakes on Soccernet...what a joke...he comments if he ever goes back to Europe it would have to be in a situation where he was guaranteed to play because he doesn't want to sit on the bench...shut up, the only place you should be guaranteed to play is your own back yard, otherwise get out there and try to earn you spot every day like every real professional in Europe does day in and day out.

This is proof you've never spoken with a Timbers fan or any other fan of USL-1 team that wasn't a Sounders fan.

i think landon donovan is really struggling with a lot of issues right now, and as much as he says that what other people say about him doesnt bother him, it clearly does

Just for the record, I (JB) was the anonym who comments on Landy cakes but did not make any of the other Anonym comments about how anyone looks, thinks, acts etc....but as a former resident of Portland an devoted Timbers fan, ease up, plus I shave and shower regularly....
