My MLS story (or, I know what you did last summer)

When I left Madison, my MLS allegiances were up for grabs. Here’s how that story unfolded. When I was younger I had been a DC United fan of sorts, since being in North Carolina DC was the closest team.

EPL, FA Cup, etc wind down. MLB, MLS, etc get started. The Circle of Life.

Just quickly, NCAA Frozen Four final was yesterday.  The hometown Badgers got annihilated by Boston College. Also, what was the deal with the ESPN spring football coverage?  Are you really hurting that much for content.  Here’s an idea, PUT THE MADRID BARCELONA GAME ON! It’s not a matter of rights, because ESPN had English coverage of the game on ESPN3.  BTW, I can’t tell...
