Some Soccer News for Sep 27, 2017

It's Day 270 of 2017.

I'm going to the LA Galaxy v Minnesota United game on Sun Oct 15. If you want to join us in the special MNUFC section hurry up and get your tix cuz sales of them ends on Oct 1.


I get more upset by the day when I see what is happening to the great people in Puerto Rico!
  • The clowns who run our government are literally doing everything they can to slow down all aid.
  • Not allowing foreign ships to dock.
  • Not allowing our politicians to go to PR to help.
  • Openly criticizing Puerto Rican politicians for the way they do business. ("You owe money to Wall Street! How do you plan to pay that back?") Who gives a shit right now!

Pachuca v Cruz Azul - 9:00pm



For a team that is in 19th place, with no chance at the playoffs (yeah yeah yeah, there is a mathematical chance, but get real), struggling all year to win a few games, making some horrible roster decisions, and at times playing really uninspired soccer (on a home field is a major eye sore), there is a stunning amount of positity in the air. Fans are excited. Fans are showing up to games in bigger numbers every home game. The general outlook of the whole thing is impressing other fans and pundits across the league. Impressive. Even to this majorly cynical mind.

Houston Dynamo v Minnesota United - 7:30pm CT on Fox 9+
