Dream Final! Brazil vs. Spain!

If you weren't watching today's Confederations Cup semifinal between Spain and Italy, do yourself a favor and find a replay somewhere. Wow. What drama! Match was scoreless after regulation, scoreless after two overtime periods, and Spain finally came out on top 7-6 in penalty kicks after Italian defender Leonardo Bonucci shot too high and Spaniard Juan Naves made the decisive PK.

So, Spain takes on host Brazil in a dream final on Sunday. Who do you think will win? Answer our poll now!

Beckham's Miami Visit: Your views?

In case you missed it, here's my weekend story on David Beckham's visit to Sun Life Stadium and FIU Stadium


I have no idea how this will all shake out, but I do know that it's very interesting and promising to have Beckham in town for 5 days touring the city and talking soccer with Marcelo Claure, a true soccer guy with tons of passion to bring a team to Miami, loads of connections, and pockets deep enough to make it happen.

I am still not completely sold on either of those venues, and not 100 percent convinced that Miami fans who care deeply about international soccer will be loyal fans of a domestic league. But with the right owners, the right stadium, and some big-name players (Miami will settle for nothing less than at least a few marquee names), anything's possible.

I do know European and South American players LOVE to visit Miami. Many have condos here. They take holiday here. If they had a chance to play here on a team owned by Beckham, some may bite.

Time will tell. What do you think? You think it could work? Where do you think they should play? Would Marlins Park work? Share your views...
