Highlight of the day


  1. OneManWolfpack says:

    I don’t know that I have ever seen the Union praised the way they just were in that Rapids preview. Even the folks who commented were singing our praises. I am uncomfortable with all of this.

    • pragmatist says:

      It’s like the part of a horror movie where it’s deafeningly silent. That’s how uneasy I feel these days.
      It’s just weird…

  2. If you’re looking for a sleeper team to root for in addition to USWNT at the World Cup, this Scottish team should be fun to watch. Erin Cuthbert might be one of the best young players in the womens’ game right now. Scores absolute crackers.

    Their first time qualifying for the WC (might be Scotland’s only hope given the mens team’s proclivity for losing winnable games in qualifying).

    I will be in the “cheering/welcoming Keegan during intros” part of the crowd tonight

  3. That League Cup competition is a new level of trash. Everyone should boycott it, including the players. I love the idea of doing more with competition with Liga MX, but you already have the basics with CCL. Why on earth wold you not try to do more to promote that? Oh yeah, CONCACAF owns it. MLS and LigaMX want their own thing to make money off of. Though, this seems like a losing proposition in every way.
