I'm baaaaaaaaack! Took a few weeks off to breathe (and go on safari!) after the World Cup -- will post a few photos -- but now it's time to keep things going here on the soccer blog. Just because the World Cup is over doesn't mean the fun is over...MLS going on, European and South American leagues will be starting soon, Champions League ,etc..
Did you see that the NY Red Bulls beat Manchester City 2-1? And Kansas City, in front of 52,000 fans at Arrowhead Stadium, knocked off Man U 2-1 despite being down a man for the majority of the game? Does this mean anything? Can we deduce anything from those results? Tell us what you think. I will post a poll asking the same question.
In other MLS news, Thierry Henry, he of the infamous handball, is now playing for the Red Bulls. And there are rumors that Ronaldinho could wind up with the LA Galaxy. You think MLS will benefit from the World Cup buzz that overtook the USA this summer? Share your thoughts.
So, here we are, 105 minutes into this World Cup final, and still no score! Lots of fouls and stoppages, but no goals. Many chances -- more for Spain than Holland -- but neither team able to clinch it...stay tuned...
Two of the previous four World Cups have been decided by PKs..1994 (Brazil over Italy) and 1998 (Italy over France)
