Feilhaber impact, Independence sign sponsors

The New England Revolution won 3-2 over Sporting KC. Guess who assisted on the Revs first goal? Come on, guess! Please? Yeah, it was David Beckham. Very funny, guy. Actually, Benny “No Nickname” Feilhaber played in Marko Perovic to give the Revolution an early lead. For more on this story, and reason #1 that “Contributor Networks” are stupid, please see the Yahoo article on Barry Feilhaber’s influence on the New England team.

An International Monetary Fund report declares that 2016 will end the “Age of America.” How does The Drudge Report represent this story visually? Why, with an image from The River End of PPL Park!

Fifty local soccer clubs are taking part in the Union’s youth soccer program this year, up from 31 in 2010.

  2. I must say the officiating this year has been so sporatic, unregulated, haphazard, with no consistency whatsoever. I realize some refs will card more often than others because they are on an ego trip, but Davies should have been redded for the mere promotional attempt of entering a car.
