Some News for Tue Apr 28

Twittering away again in Coca-Cola-ville: dunord


The Toronto Star talks to now former TFC coach John Carver. He is no longer part of the league, but he continues to be a bag of hot air. Hey John: Shut the hell up, and don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out. He claims the league was against him, but the team had his back. Bull. If they had his back he would not be gone.
-Again Ben Knight of Onward!, up in Toronto himself, calls Carver on his garbage excuses.


Chivas USA's virtually unknown young midfielder Gerson Mayen leads the league in assists with 4. Pretty damn good!

One of my co-workers just returned from 3 weeks in South Africa and reported that the entire country is swept up in "2010" fever! Great to hear.

And Business Day in South Africa reports that a deal has been struck to help stabilize the electricity supplies during the big event.

I assume the Fire is not traveling to Mexico City to face America anytime soon.

Let's hope everyone in Mexico is treated quickly for this horrible Swine Flu.
