      Hi, good night

      Do you have information about Pepsi-Cola?
      Team who played 1974 and 1975 National Challenge Cup.
      Do they have any relation to the company?
      Sorry for my bad English.

      In the process of ordering one of your books. Pretty pumped.

      Hiya, Roger.

      Sorry to trouble you with technical stuff again.

      But I just posted a blog that has not appeared on the front page? Does that mean my sudden and mysterious promotion has been replaced by a sudden and mysterious demotion?

      Or does it mean that my blog has to be reviewed before appearing on the front page, even if I am Dan, Bill, Roger, or John?

      I managed to successfully include pictures this time.

      And it is a case in point about being current, but with reference to the past.

      hey, love all the historical content in your blog. I have a question that perhaps only you could answer.

      Everyone agrees that the 1930 World Cup game between the usa and belgium was a 3-0 win for the states, but it seems that the world does not agree about who scored the 2nd us goal. The FIFA match report claims that it was scored by Tom Florie, but most USSF literature, plus the 'american soccer history archives' website claim that the 2nd goal was another for Bart McGhee. who is correct and why is this disputed? are there any sources that can verify who was the goal scorer (newspapers?)

      You admitted a lack of awareness of the Northwest before Chursky's howler. My references to the Strikers and Rowdies seem to have no resonance with you, either.There is life south of Pennsylvania, as well was west of Saint Louis.

      Roger is a prince. If he is not in the Hall yet, he should be.

      Roger is with me in remembering those "Burger Boy" and "Comparte una Coca Cola y una Sonrisa" commercials fondly. And rooting for Jean-Pierre Tokoto, Nene Cubillas, and so forth.

      Presuming that you actually are the Roger Allaway - and why wouldn't you be... I'm obviously not a Eurosnob because I own a copy of The Encyclopedia of American Soccer History by you, Dave, and Colin. (and it's signed by Dave)
      ;-) Cheers

    American soccer didn't just begin in 1994, or 1975, or 1950, or 1930 or even 1913.
