    Wow, the Press-Enterprise article kind of shows you what LD went through this year, and how none of this has gone to his head. The fact that he was crying speaks volumes, I think.

    All the guys were gracious and all 3 deserved to win.

    From the Standard-Times article:

    "The Metro Stars and the Dallas Burn are preparing to build their own soccer stadiums and it certainly looks as though the professional men's game has a future in this country. While it may not reach the level of baseball or football, it is nevertheless a viable entity with its own niche and will continue to grow incrementally. "

    There, now, was that so hard? No irrational exhuberance from a soccer guy, no oblivious and intentionally ignorant soccer hatred by a typical mainstream sports columnist. A little more of this sort of thing in the mainstream sports media (i.e., the truth, as opposed to what those morons usually spew forth) would be most welcome.

    I'm forgetting which type of synthetic Naperville actually was, but I always find these types of quotes interesting for the turf apologists out there.

    "It's the first thing you notice,'' Armas said. "You step two or three steps in and you can say it is soft underneath. The turf in Naperville, it feels that way at first, but over the course of 90 minutes there is an end point where your body pays a toll."

    Steve Davis' "Added Time" column in the Dallas Morning News is a good read.

    Davis' past columns were mainly news blurbs taken from the wires, but his new "Added Time" column offers opinions/insights into the Dallas and national soccer scene.

    Armas is absolutely right. That stuff kills my legs. It sucks the life out of them. I've run on both the heralded field turf and NexTurf.

    Don Cuddy is a soccer specific sports columnist, and a very good one at that. It's too bad he doesn't have a bigger audience.

    WUSA backers say U.S. loss shows need

    Sigh.


    1. You could also look at the results and ask: how did we fare in the last pre-WUSA Cup?

    2. The biggest problem for the US was its own success; now it may be forced to evolve.

    3. IMO, pro leagues or not, no other country will ever have a developmental infrastructure which can match US women's college soccer. Not in my lifetime.


    Blame the coaches.

    Oh yeah, 4. I remember hearing this last time around as a reason to start a women's pro league. Doesn't work that way.
