Peter Wilt nailed it on the head for the U.S. Open Cup Final. However, the U.S. Soccer Federation is run by nitwits living off of Star Trek re-runs and conventions. But the good news is that MLS gets it. We are talking about expanding MLS into the one key graphic that we haven't been able to get any sort of a grasp of: Mexicans of any kind in this country... descendants, illegals, green card holders, whatever. We can talk all the racist thoughts of how this is wrong... just check the threads around here on the topic of a Chivas USA. But it's so perfect, it's insane to think they are actually going to do it. This country is a gigantic market place that everyone wants to get their foot in. So let them. We are still talking about soccer in this country. Our league and it's sustainability. *#*#*#*# Think of it this way, LA is about to go from the most hated team to the second most hated team. Every game, every U.S. player on the field is going to go out and try to destroy Chivas. We're talking about bringing passion into this league. For the fans, for the players, for the investors and for the advertisers. Sounds absolutely ideal to me. Why anyone would attempt to destroy something that will cause some major movement in this league is beyond me. Please keep living in your white suburban community, spending your weekends going to star trek conventions. Spock is still alive, he is just on Romulus and is starting a revolution there. You can join him!!
