Some News for Thu Jul 15, 2010


NYRB introduced their new player today. It was not nearly the circus the Beckman intro was, and I suspect Henry will not cause nearly the turmoil in his team either, while on the other hand being successful much quicker.


Rob Hughes of the New York Times on Thierry Henry's potential impact in America.


Henry told press last night that he is calling an end to his play for the French national team.


His 1st potential MLS game is Sat Jul 31 at Houston. It will only be 107 degrees that night! Welcome to MLS buddy!


Sad news out of DC - Ongoing symptoms of concussions has forced United fullback Bryan Namoff into semi-retirement. He will join the teams off field staff for now, and hope that he will get healthy enough to pull the black shirt back on.


Revs get the win, while Chicago gets pummeled in SuperLiga.

Woah an ANSFW picture of Diego. Edgy stuff big man. Also, the IMS four-part series is tremendous. I'd love to see a part-five where the magical solution is put out there.

Poor Brucio, he's paranoid that people are "plagiarizing" him.

What a joke.

If anyone literally "plagiarize" Brucio, they'd end up making 15 spelling errors, 6 grammatical errors, and inventing 3 three new words...all within one paragraph.
