Hey everyone, there’s a hurricane coming. You may have heard. Your game is probably cancelled today. Track the storm here.

In case you’re the rare ticket-holder who doesn’t know, Sunday’s Philadelphia Union match is postponed till Sept. 7.

The Philadelphia Independence are still on today at 4 p.m. for the WPS title game against the Western New York Flash. Here’s an account of their last practice.

ESPN talked to both WPS teams before the match, which will be televised today on CSN.

The Goalkeeper over at the Inqy says … something about the Union … and Nowak, not being in first place, that one-game-at-a-time thing, Twitter … something like that.

Nowak is not concerned about the Union’s lack of winning over the last month, according to MLSSoccer.com.

George John’s transfer to Blackburn in the EPL means former Union midfielder Andrew Jacobson is getting a crack at central defender.

Another former Union player, Fred, is back in Melbourne, Australia. Apparently, he’s afraid of the crosstown fans, for whose team he used to play. Don’t be scared, Fred. You played in Philly.

The Seattle Sounders picked up the latest American from the U.S. National Team pool, although you’ve probably only heard of him if you follow the youth teams. Sure enough, Chivas USA once again didn’t take the guy, passing on Sammy Ochoa. In related news, they plan to pretend they have a team again next year.

The AP has a broad look at financial problems facing European soccer clubs. Considering the economic problems battering the continent, I think it’s fair to say that European soccer is in a tad bit of trouble.

The only MLS game on national TV today is on at 10:30 at night. Yes, we’re glad to see you go, Fox Soccer Channel. You can keep your Arsenal-Manchester United match tomorrow. (Oh … wait.)

Good luck, South Jersey. If you live there, you might want to check here for storm updates. It’s a new moon and a slow-moving, coast-hugging storm. There will be flooding.
